ShurShot Sports Inc. manufactures basketballs for the National Basketball Association (NBA). For the first 6 months of 2014, the company reported the following operating results while operating at 80% of plant capacity and producing 120,000 units.
Sales ............... $4,800,000
Cost of goods sold .......... 3,600,000
Selling and administrative expenses ..... 405,000
Net income ............. $ 795,000
Fixed costs for the period were cost of goods sold $960,000, and selling and administrative expenses $225,000.
In July, normally a slack manufacturing month, ShurShot Sports receives a special order for 10,000 basketballs at $27 each from the Greek Basketball Association (GBA).
Acceptance of the order would increase variable selling and administrative expenses $0.50 per unit because of shipping costs but would not increase fixed costs and expenses.
