Case Study 3 on Cash Budgeting

The Cambridge Company has budgeted sales revenues as follows:
January February March
Credit sales 45,000 36,000 27,000
Cash sales 27,000 76,500 58,500
Total sales 72,000 112,500 85,500

Past experience indicates that 60% of the credit sales will be collected in the month of sale and the remaining 40% will be collected in the following month.
Purchases of inventory are all on credit and 40% is paid in the month of purchase and 60% in the month following purchase. Budgeted inventory purchases are $97,500 in January, $67,500 in February, and $31,500 in March.
Other budgeted cash receipts: (a) sale of plant assets for $18,525 in February, and (b) sale of new common stock for $25,275 in March. Other budgeted cash disbursements: (a) operating expenses of $10,125 each month, (b) selling and administrative expenses of $18,750 each month, (c) dividends of $28,500 will be paid in February, and (d) purchase of equipment for $9,000 cash in March.
The company has a cash balance of $15,000 at the beginning of February and wishes to maintain a minimum cash balance of $15,000 at the end of each month. An open line of credit is available at the bank and carries an annual interest rate of 12%. Assume that all borrowing is done on the first day of the month in which financing is needed and that all repayments are made on the last day of the month in which excess cash is available. Also assume that there is no outstanding financing as of February 1.
