# Question: Calla Company produces skateboards that sell for 50 per unit

Calla Company produces skateboards that sell for \$50 per unit. The company currently has the capacity to produce 90,000 skateboards per year, but is selling 80,000 skateboards per year. Annual costs for 80,000 skateboards follow.
Direct materials . . . . . . . . . . . . . . \$ 800,000
Direct labor . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 640,000
Overhead . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 960,000
Selling expenses . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 560,000
Administrative expenses . . . . . . . . 480,000
Total costs and expenses . . . . . \$3,440,000
A new retail store has offered to buy 10,000 of its skateboards for \$45 per unit. The store is in a different market from Calla’s regular customers and it would not affect regular sales. A study of its costs in anticipation of this additional business reveals the following:
• Direct materials and direct labor are 100% variable.
• Thirty percent of overhead is fixed at any production level from 80,000 units to 90,000 units; the remaining 70% of annual overhead costs are variable with respect to volume.
• Selling expenses are 60% variable with respect to number of units sold, and the other 40% of selling expenses are fixed.
• There will be an additional \$2 per unit selling expense for this order.
• Administrative expenses would increase by a \$1,000 fixed amount.
Required
1. Prepare a three-column comparative income statement that reports the following:
a. Annual income without the special order.
b. Annual income from the special order.
2. Should Calla accept this order? What nonfinancial factors should Calla consider? Explain.
Analysis Component
3. Assume that the new customer wants to buy 15,000 units instead of 10,000 units—it will only buy 15,000 units or none and will not take a partial order. Without any computations, how does this change your answer for part 2?
