Question

Crystal Displays Inc. recently began production of a new product, flat panel displays, which required the investment of $ 1,500,000 in assets. The costs of producing and selling 5,000 units of flat panel displays are estimated as follows:


Crystal Displays Inc. is currently considering establishing a selling price for flat panel displays. The president of Crystal Displays has decided to use the cost- plus approach to product pricing and has indicated that the displays must earn a 15% rate of return on invested assets.

Instructions
1. Determine the amount of desired profit from the production and sale of flat panel displays.
2. Assuming that the product cost concept is used, determine
(a) The cost amount per unit,
(b) The markup percentage,
(c) The selling price of flat panel displays.
3. Appendix Assuming that the total cost concept is used, determine
(a) The cost amount per unit,
(b) The markup percentage (rounded to two decimal places),
(c) The selling price of flat panel displays (rounded to nearest whole dollar).
4. Assuming that the variable cost concept is used, determine
(a) The cost amount per unit,
(b) The markup percentage (rounded to two decimal places),
(c) The selling price of flat panel displays (rounded to nearest whole dollar).
5. Comment on any additional considerations that could influence establishing the selling price for flat panel displays.
6. Assume that as of August 1, 2014, 3,000 units of flat panel displays have been produced and sold during the current year. Analysis of the domestic market indicates that 2,000 additional units are expected to be sold during the remainder of the year at the normal product price determined under the product cost concept. On August 3, Crystal Displays Inc. received an offer from Maple Leaf Visual Inc. for 800 units of flat panel displays at $ 225 each. Maple Leaf Visual Inc. will market the units in Canada under its own brand name, and no variable selling and administrative expenses associated with the sale will be incurred by Crystal Displays Inc. The additional business is not expected to affect the domestic sales of flat panel displays, and the additional units could be produced using existing factory, selling, and administrative capacity.
a. Prepare a differential analysis of the proposed sale to Maple Leaf Visual Inc.
b. Based on the differential analysis in part (a), should the proposal beaccepted?
