Variable manufacturing overhead is 50 cents per unit. The company?s plant has a capacity of 70,000 units. Management is particularly disappointed with 2012?s operating results. Several possible courses of action are being studied to determine what should be done to make 2012 profitable. REQUIRED: Redo Alpine, Inc.?s 2012 Income Statement in the contribution format. Show both a total column and a per unit column on your statement. 5 pts. _____ In an effort to make 2013 profitable, Micah Patdu, the president is considering two proposals prepared by members of her staff: Jon Michael, the sales manager would like to reduce the unit selling price by 25 percent. He is certain that this would fill the plant to capacity. Mary Wilkinson, the executive vice president would like to increase the unit selling price by 25 percent, increase the sales commissions to 12 percent of sales, and increase advertising by $90,000. Based on experience in another company, she is confident this would trigger a 50 percent increase in unit sales. Prepare two contribution income statements, one showing what profits would be under Jon Michael?s proposal and one showing what profits would be under Mary Wilkinson?s proposal. On each statement, include both total and per unit columns (do not show per unit data for fixed costs) 15 pts. _____ Refer to the original data. Micah Patdu, the president thinks it would be unwise to change the selling price. Instead, she wants to use less costly materials in manufacturing units of product, thereby reducing costs by $1.73 per unit. How many units would have to be sold during 2013 to earn a target profit of $59,000 for the year? 5 pts. _____ Refer to the original data. Alpine, Inc.?s advertising agency thinks that the problem lies in inadequate promotion. By how much can advertising be increased and still allow the company to earn a target return of 4.5 percent on sales of 60,000 units? 5 pts. _____ Refer to the original data. Assume that the company was approached by an overseas distributor who wanted to purchase 15,000 units on a special price basis during June 2012. There would be no sales commission on these units. However, shipping costs would increase by 80 percent per unit, and variable administrative costs would be reduced by 50 percent per unit on these ?special order? units. In addition, Alpine, Inc., would have to pay a foreign import duty of $3,150 on behalf of the overseas distributor in order to get the goods into the country. Given these data, what unit price would have to be quoted on the 15,000 units by Alpine, Inc., to allow the company to earn an ?overall? profit of $18,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 on total operations? Regular business would not be disturbed by this special order. 10 pts. _____ Participation: 20 pts. _____ These points will be assigned by me and will be based on each team member?s activity on the team discussion board or other means of communication.
