The amount of reduction in cash balance = 3 x $1,000,000 = $3,000,000 (b) The opportunity cost in $ = $3,000,000 x 0.05 = $150,000 (c) The system should be adopted because the opportunity cost of the current system ($150,000) is greater than the cost of the lock-box system ($50,000). 7-3 Credit sales = $12,500,000 x 80% = $10,000,000 Current receivable turnover New receivable turnover Increase in unit sales volume Marginal profit on sales (2,000)($1,000 - $800) $400,000 New level of receivables [$10,000,000(1 + 0.20)]/5 $2,400,000 Current level of receivables $10,000,000/10 1,000,000 Additional receivables $1,400,000 Cost of marginal investment $1,400,000 x 0.10 140,000 Bad-debt lossesnew policy $12,000,000 x 0.02 $ 240,000 Bad-debt lossescurrent policy $10,000,000 x 0.01 100,000 Cost of marginal bad debt losses 140,000 Net gain from new credit policy $120,000 Because the marginal profit on sales of $400,000 exceeds the marginal cost of $280,000 ($140,000 + $140,000), Corner Creations by Dana should adopt the proposed credit policy. 7-4 Credit Marginal Profit Additional Marginal Policy on Sales Receivables Investment Gain A $5,000 $18,000 $3,600 $1400 B 4,000 15,000 3,000 1000 C 3,000 15,000 3,000 D 2,000 16,000 3,200 <1200> E 1,000 14,000 2,800 <1800> To produce the greatest gain, the company should select Policy A. 7-5 (a) (b) Optimum # of orders = (c) Total inventory cost = $2,000 + $2,000 = $4,000 (d) Because the company will have to place an order of 2,000 units every ten days 200 days/20 orders), the daily rate of use is 200 units (2,000 units/10 days). Reorder point = 500 + 2 x 200 = 900 units (e) Total inventory cost at 3,000 boxes = $4,333 Because the total inventory cost at 2,000 boxes was $4,000, the total inventory cost would increase by $333 ($4,333 - $4,000).
