b. refuses this price. What will be the loss in potential profits for the company as a whole? 70,000 X $3 = $210,000 Loss in potential profits Proof: Division A: TP per unit to Division B $38 Variable cost per unit associated with transfer 15 Benefit per unit to Division A $23 Less CM given up to make transfer possible 21 Net per unit benefit to Division A $2 Number of units transferred 70,000 Total increase in CM to Division A as a result of transfer $140,000 Division B: Cost per unit if purchased outside $39 Cost per unit if transferred at agreed upon TP 38 Benefit per unit to Division B $1 Number of units transferred 70,000 Total increase in CM to Division A as a result of transfer $70,000 Total benefit to the company resulting from the transfer $210,000 Note: Transfer price allocates profit between Division A and Division B. 3. supplier. a. Will the managers agree to a transfer? If so, within what range will the transfer price be? Transfer Price to maximize company profits: TP = Out of pocket costs / unit + (Total contribution margin given up on lost sales) / units transferred Division A: Contribution margin per unit generated under the current situation (excess capacity) $0 Excess Capacity Contribution margin generated if a transfer takes place at $35/unit 0 $35 - $35 Division A manager is indifferent to selling outside or transferring to Division B $0 Division B: Cost per unit if purchased outside $57 Cost per unit if transferred at $35/unit 35 Division B manager would accept an internal transfer because of a $22 per unit decrease in cost $22 $440,000 The managers should agree to a transfer. Division A will be willing to accept a price of $35 or higher Division B will be willing to pay no more $57, the outside price. The range of negotiation within which a transfer should take place is $35 to $57. Even though the company would be better off with any transfer price within this range, each manager will negotiate for the transfer price that benefits their division the most. Division A's manager will try to hold out for a transfer price of $57, while Division B's manager will try to hold out for a transfer price of $35 per unit transferred. b. accepts this price, would you expect its ROI to increase, decrease, or remain unchanged? Why? Benefit to company as a whole resulting from transfers 20,000 X $22 = $440,000 Division A: TP per unit to Division B $52 Variable cost per unit associated with transfer 35 Benefit per unit to Division A $17 Less CM given up to make transfer possible (excess capacity) 0 Net per unit benefit to Division A $17 Number of units transferred 20,000 Total increase in CM to Division A as a result of transfer $340,000 Effect on ROI: Divisional income will increase by $340,000 with no change in investment (excess capacity). Thus, Division A's ROI will increase. Division B: Cost per unit if purchased outside $57 Cost per unit if transferred at agreed upon TP 52 Benefit per unit to Division B $5 Number of units transferred 20,000 Total increase in CM to Division A as a result of transfer $100,000 Total benefit to the company resulting from the transfer $440,000 Note: Transfer price allocates profit between Division A and Division B.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
