Owing to acute competition, it has become inevitable to reduce prices by 25% even to maintain the sales at the existing levels. The directors are considering whether or not their factory should be closed down until the trade recession has passed. A market research consultant has advised that in about a years time there is every indication that sales will increase to 75% of normal capacity and that the revenue to be produced for a full year at that volume could be expected to be Rs. 40 lakh. If the directors decide to close down the factory for a year it is estimated that: a. The present fixed costs would be reduced to Rs. 6 lakh per annum. b. Closing down costs (redundancy payment, etc.) would amount to Rs. 2 lakh. c. Necessary maintenance of plant would cost Rs. 50,000 per annum; and d. On re-opening the factory, the cost of overhauling the plant, training and engagement of new personnel would amount to Rs. 80,000. Give your recommendations.

Differential costing Q.3 X Ltd., makers of a specialized line of toys, receives an order for 2,000 units of toy battle tanks, from a large mail-order house at a price of Rs. 3 per unit. The company sells this type of toy to its other customers at Rs. 5 each but it has surplus capacity and can take the special order without adversely affecting its regular operations for the coming month. The income statement of the company for the preceding month is as follows: Net Sales10,000 units @ Rs. 5 Costs: Direct Material: Rs. 1.50 per unit Direct Labour: Re. 1 per unit Factory Overhead (fixed) Selling and Administration Expenses (fixed) Total Costs Net Profit Rs. 50,000 Rs. 15,000 10,000 10,000 10,000 45,000 5,000

Direct material and direct labour costs to be incurred on the special order are estimated to be of the same amount per unit as for the regular business. Special tools costing Rs. 500 would be required to meet the specifications of the mail-order house. You are required to prepare a differential cost analysis for deciding about the acceptance of the order. Q.4 A company is manufacturing three products A, B and C. The data regarding cost, sales and profits are as follows:

Product A B C

Sales (units) 2,000 1,000 1,000

Selling price per unit 5 5 5

Variable cost per unit 2 3 3

Contribution per unit Rs. 3 Rs. 2 Rs. 2

The fixed costs are Rs. 5,000. The Company wants to change the sales mix from the existing proportion of 2: 1 : 1 to 2 : 2 : 1 of A, B and C respectively. You are required to calculate the number of units of each product, which the company should sell to maintain the present profit. Q.5 Two competing food vendors were located side by side at a state fair. Both occupied buildings of the same size, paid the same rent, Rs. 1,250, and charged similar prices for their foods. Vendor A employed three times as many employees as B and had twice as much income as B even though B had more than half the sales of A. Other data are as follows: Vendor A Vendor B Sales Rs. 8,000 Rs. 4,500 Cost of goods sold 50% of Sales 50% of Sales Wages Rs. 2,250 Rs. 750 Explain why vendor A is twice as profitable as Vendor B. Q.6 X Ltd. produces and markets industrial containers and packing cases. Due to competition, the company proposes to reduce the selling price. If the present level of profit is to be maintained, indicate the number of units to be sold if the proposed reduction in selling price is: (a) 5%, (b) 10% and (c) 15 % The following additional information is available: Rs. Rs. Present Sales Turnover (30,000 units) 3,00,000 Variable Cost (30,000 units) 1,80,000 Fixed Costs 70,000 2,50,000 Net profit 50,000 Q.7 Following information relates to cost records of X Ltd., manufacturing spare parts: Direct Materials Per unit X Rs. 8 Y Rs. 6 Direct Wages X 24 hours @ 25 paise per hour Y 16 hours @ 25 paise per hour Variable Overheads 150% of direct wages Fixed Overheads (total) Rs. 750 Selling Price X Rs. 25 Y Rs. 20

The directors want to be acquainted with the desirability of adopting any one of the following alternative sales mixes in the budget for the next period. (a) 250 units of X and 250 units of Y (b) 400 units of Y only (c) 400 units of X and 100 units of Y (d) 150 units of X and 350 units of Y. State which of the alternative sales mixes you would recommend to the management. Discontinue of a Product line Q.8 A company manufactures three products A, B and C. there are no common processes and the sale of one product does not affect prices or volume of sale of any other. The companys budgeted profit/loss for 2008 has been abstracted thus: Total A B C Rs. Rs. Rs. Rs. Sales 3,00,000 45,000 2,25,000 30,000 Production Cost: Variable 1,80,000 24,000 1,44,000 12,000 Production Cost: Fixed 60,000 3,000 48,000 9,000 Factory Cost 2,40,000 27,000 1,92,000 21,000 Selling & Administration Costs: Variable 24,000 8,100 8,100 7,800 Fixed 6,000 2,100 1,800 2,100 Total Cost 2,70,000 37,200 2,01,900 30,900 Profit 30,000 7,800 23,100 (-) 900 On the basis of above, the board had almost decided to eliminate product C, on which a loss was budgeted. Meanwhile, they have sought your opinion. As the Companys Finance Manager, what would you advise? Give reasons for your answer. Exploring new markets Q.9 A company annually manufactures 10,000 units of a product at a cost of Rs. 4 per unit and there is home market for consuming the entire volume of production at the sale price of Rs. 4.25 per unit. In the year 2007, there is a fall in the demand for home market, which can consume 10,000 units only at a sale price of Rs. 3.72 per unit. The analysis of the cost per 10,000 units is: Materials Rs. 15,000 Wages 11,000 Fixed overheads 8,000 Variable overheads 6,000 The foreign market is explored and it is found that this market can consume 20,000 units of the product if offered at a sale price of Rs. 3.55 per unit. It is also discovered that for additional 10,000 units of the product (over initial 10,000 units) that fixed overheads will increase by 10 per cent. Is it worthwhile to try to capture the foreign market? Change v. Status quo Q.10 The following details have been furnished to you regarding two proposals, which are for consideration before a firm.

(a) Improvement in the quality of the product, which will result in an additional sale of 5,000 units at the existing price. However, this improvement in quality will result in increase in the variable cost by 10 paise per unit. (b) Reduction in the selling price of the product by 12 paise per unit. This will push up sales by 5,000 units. In both cases, the fixed expenses will increase by Rs. 1,000. The present sales of the firm are 10,000 units at the rate of Rs. 2.10 per unit. The variable cost is Rs. 1.60 per unit and the total fixed costs are Rs. 3,000. You are required to state whether it will appropriate for the firm to select any of the new proposals or should it continue with the existing scheme.

(iv) The average depreciation rate on the new investment is 15% based on straight line method. After the expansion is put through, the company has two alternatives for operations: (i) Sales can be increased up to 10 lakh units by spending Rs. 10,00,000 on special advertisement campaign to explore new market. Or (ii) Sales can be increased to 12 lakh units subject to the following: By an overall reduction of Rs. 10 per unit in selling price on all the units sold. By increasing the variable selling and administration expenses by 8%. The direct material costs would go down by 1.5% due to discount on bulk purchasing. Requirements: I. Construct a Flexible Budget at the level of 6 lakhs, 10 lakhs and 12 lakhs unit of production. II. Calculate Break Even Point before and after expansion. III. Advise the optimum level of output for expansion.
