Chapter 7: Exercises 3, 7, and 11 Chapter 8: Exercises 2, 6, and 9 E7-3 Moonbeam Company manufactures toasters. For the first 8 months of 2017, the company reported the following operating results while operating at 75% of plant capacity: Sales (350,000 units) $4,375,000 Cost of goods sold 2,600,000 Gross profit 1,775,000 Operating expenses 840,000 Net income $ 935,000 Cost of goods sold was 70% variable and 30% fixed; operating expenses were 80% variable and 20% fixed. In September, Moonbeam receives a special order for 15,000 toasters at $7.60 each from Luna Company of Ciudad Juarez. Acceptance of the order would result in an additional $3,000 of shipping costs but no increase in fixed costs. Instructions a. Prepare an incremental analysis for the special order.
b. Should Moonbeam accept the special order? Why or why not?
E7-7 Riggs Company purchases sails and produces sailboats. It currently produces 1,200 sailboats per year, operating at normal capacity, which is about 80% of full capacity. Riggs purchases sails at $250 each, but the company is considering using the excess capacity to manufacture the sails instead. The manufacturing cost per sail would be $100 for direct materials, $80 for direct labor, and $90 for overhead. The $90 overhead is based on $78,000 of annual fixed overhead that is allocated using normal capacity.
The president of Riggs has come to you for advice. “It would cost me $270 to make the sails,” she says, “but only $250 to buy them. Should I continue buying them, or have I missed something?” Instructions a. Prepare a per unit analysis of the differential costs. Briefly explain whether Riggs should make or buy the sails.
