Marketing. Both divisions are considered to be profit centers and the two division managers are evaluated in large part on divisional income. The company makes a single product. It is fabricated in Manufacturing and then packaged and sold in Marketing. There is no intermediate market for the product.
 
The monthly income statements, in thousands of dollars, for the two divisions follow. Production and sales amounted to 10,000 units.
 
 Manufacturing MarketingRevenues 3,000   5,000 Variable costs$2,400  $3,700 Contribution margin$600  $1,300 Fixed costs$500  $800 Divisional profit$100  $500 
 
The company has just received an offer to buy 1,000 units of the product this month at a price of $400 per unit. The Marketing Division manager suggests that for the special order only, the transfer price be set at 50 percent of the sales price, or $200 per unit. Instead, assume the transfer price is unchanged from the current transfer price.
