Case 6-1: Hospital Supply, Inc. A. Introduction This case consists examining various options of behavioral of costs in order to maximize profits. Hospital Supply, Inc. manufactures hydraulic hoists and has a normal volume of 3,000 units per month. A break-even analysis is used to determine the sales volume and prices at which the company would profitably sell its product. Also, a number of scenarios are given in order to determine which options to take to maximize profit or at least minimize loss. B. Analysis Question 1: According to exhibit 1 on page 500 in textbook variable costs per unit = \$550 + \$825 + \$420 + \$275 = \$ 2,070 and fixed costs per unit = \$660 + \$770 = \$1,430. Normal volume = 3,000 units and regular selling price = \$4,350 Total fixed cost = 3,000 units *\$1,430/unit = \$4,290,000 Unit contribution = price/unit – variable cost/unit = \$4,350 - \$2,070 = \$2,280 Contribution percent = \$2,280/\$4,350 = 0.524138 Question 2: | |Regular price |With price reduction |Difference | | | | |After - before | |Quantity (units) |3,000 |3,500 |500 | |Price (\$) |4,350 |3,850 |-500 | |Revenue \$ (P x Q) |13,050,000 |13,475,000 |425,000 | |Fixed costs |4,290,000 |4,290,000 |0 | |Variable costs |6,210,000 |7,245,000 |1,035,000 | |Total costs (FC+VC) |10,500,000 |11,535,000 | | Income (with regular price) = Revenues –Total costs = \$13,050,000 - \$10,500,000 = \$2,550,000 After price reduction, income = \$13,475,000-\$11,535,000 = \$1,940,000 Question 3: If government contract is accepted: income from government = 500 x unit contribution
