Problem 11-22 Special Order Decisions [LO11-4] Polaski Company manufactures and sells a single product called a Ret. Operating at capacity, the company this level of production and sales are given below: can produce and sell 36,000 Rets per year. Costs associated with Unit $ 20 8 Total Direct materials 720,000 288,000 108,000 180,000 144,000 216,000 Direct labor Variable manufacturing overhead Fixed manufacturing overhead Variable selling expense Fixed selling expense 3 5 4 $ 46 Total cost $ 1,656,000 The Rets normally sell for $51 each. Fixed manufacturing overhead is $180,000 per year within the range of 26,000 through 36,000 Rets per year. Required: 1. Assume that due to a recession, Polaski Company expects to sell only 26,000 Rets through regular channels next year. A large retail chain has offered to purchase 10,000 Rets if Polaski is willing to accept a 16% discount off the regular price. There would be no sales commissions on this order; thus, variable selling expenses would be slashed by 75%. However, Polaski Company would have to purchase the retail chain's name on the 10,000 units. This machine would cost $20,000. Polaski Company has no assurance that the retail chain will purchase additional units in the future What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of accepting the special order? (Round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places.) special machine to engrave a 2. Refer to the original data. Assume again that Polaski Company expects to sell only 26,000 Rets through regular channels next year. The U.S. Army would like to make a one- time-only purchase of 10,000 Rets. The Army would pay a fixed fee of $1.60 per Ret, and it would reimburse Polaski Company for all costs of production (variable and fixed) associated with the units. Because the army would pick up the Rets with its own trucks, there would be no variable selling expenses associated with this order. What is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of accepting the U.S. Army's special order? 3. Assume the same situation as described in (2) above, except that the company expects to sell 36,000 Rets through regular channels next year. Thus, accepting the U.S. Army's order would require giving up regular sales of 10,000 Rets. Given this new information, what is the financial advantage (disadvantage) of accepting the U.S. Army's special order? 1. 2. 3.
