Acc221 Accounting Principles

P26-1A
Korte Company is currently producing 16,000 units per month, which is 80% of its production capacity. Variable manufacturing costs are currently $8.00 per unit. Fixed manufacturing costs are $56,000 per month. Korte pays a 9% sales commission to its sales people, has $30,000 in fixed administrative expenses per month, and is averaging $320,000 in sales per month. A special order received from a foreign company would enable Korte Company to operate at 100% capacity. The foreign company offered to pay 75% of Korte's current selling price per unit. If the order is accepted, Korte will have to spend an extra $2.00 per unit to package the product for overseas shipping. Also, Korte Company would need to lease a new stamping machine to imprint the foreign company's logo on the product, at a monthly cost of $2,500. The special order would require a sales commission of $3,500.
