Kim Fuller
In the early fall of 2002, Kim Fuller was employed as a district sales engineer for a large chemical firm. During a routine discussion with plant chemists, Fuller learned that the company had developed a use for the recycled material, in pulverized form, made from plastic soda pop bottles. Because the state had mandatory deposits all beverage bottles. Fuller realized that a ready supply of this material was available. All that was needed was an organization to tap that bottle supply, grind the bottles, and deliver the pulverized plastic to the chemical company. It was an opportunity Fuller had long awaited—a chance to start a business.
In November 2002 Fuller began checking into the costs involved in setting up a plastic bottle grinding business. A used truck and three trailers were acquired to pick up the empty bottles. Fuller purchased one used grinding machine but had to buy a second one new;Supplies and pans necessary to run and maintain the machines were also purchased. Fuller also purchased a personal computer with the intention of using it to keep company records. These items used $65,000 of the $75,000 Fuller had saved and invested in the company.
A warehouse costing $162,000 was found in an excellent location for the business. Fuller was able to interest family members enough in this project that three of them, two sisters and a brother, invested $30, 000 each. These funds gave Fuller the$50,000 down payment on the warehouse. The bank approved a mortgage for the balance on the building. In granting the mortgage, however, the bank 0fficial suggested that Fuller start from the beginning with proper accounting records. He said these records would help not only with future bank dealings but also with tax returns and general management of the company. He suggested Fuller find a good accountant to provide assistance from the start, to get things going on the right foot.
Fuller's neighbor, Marion Zimmer, was an accountant with a local firm. When

The host, Phoebe Judge, a reporter based in Mississippi, has a history in making documentaries. In the first episode of Criminal Judge reviews the unsolved murder case of Kathleen Peterson, a 48 year-old woman, found dead in her home by her husband Michael Peterson back in 2001.Their neighbour, Larry Pollard, a lawyer following the case came up with a theory that puts at new meaning to man vs. beast. When Kathleen was found her husband called 911 saying she fell down the stairs. All odds were against Michael Peterson and he was indicted for the murder of his wife. They said Michael’s motive was that Kathleen found out he was having affairs with men and that his wife had a 1.5 million dollar life insurance policy for herself. Also, in the 80s Michael was tied to a murder and was the last person to see a woman alive before she was killed using blunt-force trauma, just like his wife. After a five month trial Michael Peterson was convicted of his wife's murder. Their neighbour Larry Pollard had an alternate theory to Kathleen’s death. Pollard’s theory was that when Kathleen went back outside for some reason maybe to take out the trash, she was attacked by an owl, then rushing back inside after feeling her head and taking out a clump of hair she ran to the stairs,…

    Swisher Mower Case Summary

    • 3362 Words
    • 14 Pages

    This determination was calculated based on fixed costs of five percent of 1995 sales. The five percent was derived by subtracting the net profit margin (10%) from the mark-up on the sales price versus variable costs (15%). (See Appendix A) If the proposal from the private brand was accepted, to breakeven in year one, Swisher must sell 8,385 mowers. In year two, 7,623 mowers must be sold. To determine breakeven for the proposal, five percent was subtracted from the Manufactures Retail Price. The private brand proposal stipulated that this must be the price per acquired Road King. Also, variable costs increased by the following: Four percent ($26.00 per unit for overtime costs), one percent ($6.50 per unit for overhead costs), one percent ($6.50 per unit for direct materials costs), and one and a half percent ($9.75 per unit for increases in property taxes). An increase in inventory levels resulted in an increase of fixed costs. On average, an additional 2,100 units of Road King mowers will be in inventory if the proposal is accepted. The inventory increase is financed by short-term debt with an interest cost of prime plus 2.5% (currently 7%). Year one also included a one-time cost of $12,000. This cost would be required if Swisher accepts the proposal. (See Appendix A) A few important non-measurable costs were not included in the cost basis for determining breakeven. This should be dully noted and investigated further before a final decision can be reached. These non-measurable costs include an increase in potential lawsuit liability (the contract stipulates Swisher will be fully liable in the event a negligence lawsuit is filed), an increase in warranty work/repair (the contract stipulates Swisher will be fully responsible for any warranty work/repair and will reimburse the private brand for any labor costs associated with warranty work at $22.00 per hour), and a small…
