You have been hired as a management trainee by Cravat Sales Company, a nationwide distributor of a designers silk ties. The company has an exclusive franchise on the distribution of the ties, and sales have grown so rapidly over the last few years that it has become necessary to add new members to the management team. You have been given responsibility for all planning and budgeting. Your first assignment is to prepare a master budget for the next three months, starting April 1. You are anxious to make favorable impression on the President and have assembled the information below. The company desires a minimum ending cash balance each month of $10,000. The ties are sold to retailers for $8 each. Recent and forecasted sales in units are as follows: January (actual)................. 20,000 February (actual)............... 24,000 March (actual)................... 28,000 April ................................. 35,000 May .................................. 45,000 June....................... 60,000 July........................ 40,000 August.................... 36,000 September............... 32,000

Purchases are paid for as follows: 50% in the month of purchase and the remaining 50% in the following month. All sales are on credit, with no discounts, and payable within 15 days. The company has found, however, that only 25% of a months sales are collected by month-end. An additional 50% is collected in the following month, and the remaining 25% is collected in the second month following sale. Bad debts have been negligible.
