% - XYZ Company provides you with the following data projected for 2018:

1) 19% - XYZ Company provides the following data: Sales Price - \$10 Variable Cost per unit - \$6 Fixed Cost - \$20,000 Units sold - 6,000 a) 4% - What is the contribution margin per unit for the above data and what is meant by contribution margin per unit? b) 5% -How many units need to be sold if the company wants to earn an after-tax income of \$80,000. The tax rate is 40%. c) 5% - By how much should sales price increase if the company wants to raise its advertising costs (fixed cost) by \$8,000 while selling the same number of units and keeping the same level of profit? d) 5% - If the company doesn’t change its sales price of \$10, and cannot cut costs, what else would you advise the company to do to cover the anticipated extra \$8,000 fixed cost to keep the same level of profit? Show by calculation why your advice is correct.. . Solution: a) Contribution margin per unit = Sales price per unit – Variable cost per unit = 10-6 = \$4 b) Let the no. of units sold be x units. Revenue generated = 10x Total Expense = Total Variable cost + Total Fixed cost = 6x+20000 Profit before tax = Revenue – Total Expense = 10x –(6x+20000) = 4x-20000 Tax expense = 40% of (4x-20000) After tax profit = 60% of (4x-20000) As per the problem statement, 60% of (4x-20000) = 80000 x = 383334 units. Hence, 38334 units needs to be sold to earn an after-tax income of \$80000. c) Current profit level = 10*6000 – (6*6000 + 20000) = \$4000 To maintain the same level of profit, let the new selling price be x Profit = 6000x – 56000 – 8000 = 6000x-64000 As per the problem statement, 6000x-64000 = 4000 x = 11.33 Hence, the sales price should be increased by 13.33% to accommodate the advertising cost and maintain the same profitability level. d) Since the variable cost per unit cannot change along with the constraint that we cannot increase the selling price. So, to accommodate the additional cost the company must increase the production level i.e., the no. of units produced must be increased. For example, let the no. of units produced is 12000. Profit for the company = 12000*10 – 12000*6 – 20000 – 8000 = \$20000. Hence, we can see that by increasing the production level the company can increase its profitability keeping other things constant.
