Project Description:

write executive summary about case 3 and 4

case three

allen corporation produces a molded plastic casing, lx201, for desktop computers. summary data from its 2011 income statement are as follows:

revenues $5,000,000
variable costs 3,000,000
fixed costs 2,160,000
operating income $(160,000)

jane woodall, allen’s president, is very concerned about allen corporation’s poor profitability. she asks max lemond, production manager, and lester bush, controller, to see if there are ways to reduce costs.

after two weeks, max returns with a proposal to reduce variable costs to 52% of revenues by reducing the costs allen currently incurs for safe disposal of wasted plastic. lester is concerned that this would expose the company to potential environmental liabilities. he tells max. “we would need to estimate some of these potential environmental costs and include them in our analysis.” “you can’t do that,” max replies. “we are not violating any laws. there is some possibility that we may have to incur environmental costs in the future, but if we bring it up now, this proposal will not go through because our senior management always assumes these costs to be larger than they turn out to be. the market is very tough, and we are in danger of shutting down the company and costing all of us our jobs. the only reason our competitors are making money is because they are doing exactly what i am proposing.”

1. calculate allen corporation’s breakeven revenues for 2011.
2. calculate allen corporation’s breakeven revenues if variable costs are 52% of revenues.
3. calculate allen corporation’s operating income for 2011 if variable costs had been 52% of revenues.
4. given mas lemond’s comments, what should lester bush do?

case four

ballpark concessions currently sells hotdogs. during a typical month, the stand reports a profit of $9,000 with sales of $50,000, fixed costs of $21,000 and variable costs of $0.64 per hotdog.

next year, the company plans to start selling nachos for $3 per unit. nachos will have a variable cost of $0.72 and new equipment and personnel to produce nachos will increase monthly fixed costs by $8,808. initial sales of nachos should total 5,000 units. most of the nacho sales are anticipated to come from current hot dog purchasers, therefore, monthly sales of hot dogs will decline to $20,000.

after the first year of nacho sales, the company president believes that hotdog sales will increase to approximately $36,000 a month and nacho sales will increase to 7,500 units a month.

1. determine the monthly breakeven point before the introduction of nachos (currently).
2. determine the monthly breakeven point during the first year of nacho sales.
3. what will happen to the breakeven point in the second year of nacho sales? why? what would you recommend?
