V. Moore Development Company developed the following budgeted life-cycle income statement for two proposed products. Each product’s life cycle is expected to be two years. A 12 percent return on sales is required for new products. Because the proposed products did not have a 12 percent return, the product were not going to be produced.
Product A Product B Total
Sales $ 400,000 $350,000 $750,000
Cost of goods sold 300,000 200,000 500,000
Gross profit $ 100,000 $ 150,000 $ 250,000
Research and Development (100,000)
Life-cycle income $750,000
