a. Compute the volume in units and the dollar sales level necessary to maintain the present profit level, assuming that the maximum price increase is implemented. 59,365 units or sales of $1,959,045(see calculations below)
Current profit = 60,000 units x ($30 – $15)
= $900,000 – $700,000
= $200,000
Variable costs = $15.00 (these calculations were done in excel first for verification) Labor = 115% x 50% x $15 +
Materials = 110% x 25% x $15 +
Overhead = 120% x 25% x $15 =
New variable cost per unit = $17.25
(these calculations were done in excel first for verification)
Price: New price = 110% x $30 = $33.00 Fixed costs: New fixed costs = 105% x $700,000 = $735,000 Sales: Profit target = = $200,000
Formula is: Profit = (P – V)X – F
$200,000 = ($33.00 – $17.25)X – $735,000
X = ($935,000 / ($33.00 – $17.25)
X = 59,365 units or sales of (59,365 X $33) = $1,959,045
b. Compute the volume of sales and the dollar sales necessary to provide the 6 percent increase in profits, assuming that the maximum price increase is implemented. 60,127 units or sales of $1,984,191(see calculations below)
(these calculations were done in excel first for verification)
Profit target = $200,000 X 106% = $212,000 (this represents the 6% increase in profits)
Formula is: Profit = (P – V)X – F
$212,000 = ($33.00 – $17.25)X – $735,000
X = $947,000 / ($33.00 – $17.25)
X = 60,127 units or sales of (60,127x $33.00) = $1,984,191
c. If the volume of sales were to remain at 60,000 units, what price would be required to attain the 6 percent increase in profits? $33.03 (see calculations below)
