1. Calculate the increase or decrease in profits for the three divisions and the company as a whole (four separate computations) if the agreement is enforced. Explain your thought process, comment on the situation, and make a suggestion based on the computations you have made.
Given that we have the operating costs of Division C, we can calculate their loss from reduced output. In the case of Division A and Division B, the reduction in cost related to lower outside cost would be considered profit change.
The proposal increases profit, but leaves Division C under-utilized. The fixed cost of under utilization would have to be considered before I would suggest the Company go to the new proposal.
My suggestion is to go ahead with the new proposal and increase Division C output and sell to outside customers.
2. Evaluate and discuss the implications of the following transfer pricing policies.
Transfer pricing policies should include a fixed cost portion of the internal supplier to identify the true cost. Profit taken by the internal supplier is overall company profit. By using a standard costing process, the internal supplier would be expected to keep efficiency at standard. In this case. Division C had profit from part 101 at \$300 per unit and part 201 at \$800 per unit. If the fixed cost of Division C were included in the transfer price, it would not be necessary to identify a profit per part.
a. Transfer price = cost plus a mark-up for the selling division
This policy provides contribution to the cost of the selling division. The mark up must be appropriate to nulify the cost of the selling department, but not to make the selling department

I recommend increasing the size of the operation. In order to be able to increase the sales and returns within this sector, there needs to be capital investment. I agree with the outlook, the firm should invest \$250,000,000 initially and could increase it to \$300,000,000 in the following 5-7 years, with a decrease to \$100,000,000 a year at that time. This will generate \$200 million to \$300 million for the business, at the end of the investment period. Although this will be a lot of upfront investment, the huge increase in profitability will be worth the money spent. Increasing the size of this sector of the business is a good move for the company, which will provide them with a significant amount of returns.…

I would launch the DCS. Since the break-even volume for each price point is far less than the expected demand for each price point, DCS will easily exceed the number of units that need to be sold to cover fixed costs. However, when total profit before taxes is compared to total costs (both variable and fixed), the costs exceed the profit. But since demand is expected to increase 20% for at least the next two years, profits can be expected to increase (and costs may decrease due to economies of scale).…
