Question:

Tuff Kids Jeans Co. sells blue jeans wholesale to major retailers across the country. Each pair of jeans has a selling price of $30 and$21 in variable costs of goods sold. The company has fixed manufacturing costs of $1,200,000 and fixed marketing costs of$300,000. Sales commissions are paid to the wholesale sales reps at 5% of revenues. The company has an income tax rate of 25%.

1. How many jeans must Tuff Kids sell in order to break even?

2. How many jeans must the company sell in order to reach:

a. a target operating income of $450,000? b. a net income of$450,000?

3. How many jeans would TuffKids have to sell to earn the net income in part 2b if (consider each requirement independently).

a. The contribution margin per unit increases by 10%

b. The selling price is increased to $32.50 c. The company outsources manufacturing to an overseas company increasing variable costs per unit by$2.00 and saving 60% of fixed manufacturing costs.

• 1. To break even, we need to calculate the total contribution margin, which is the revenue minus the variable cost per unit: Contribution margin = $30 -$21 = $9 per unit To cover the fixed costs of$1,200,000 + $300,000 =$1,500,000, we divide the fixed costs by the contribution margin: Break-even point = $1,500,000 ?$9 = 166,667 pairs of jeans 2. a. To reach a target operating income of $450,000, we add the target operating income to the total fixed costs and divide by the contribution margin: Required sales = ($1,200,000 + $300,000 +$450,000) ? $9 = 150,000 pairs of jeans b. To reach a net income of$450,000, we add the net income to the total fixed costs, divide by the (1 - tax rate) and divide by the contribution margin: Required sales = ($1,200,000 +$300,000 + $450,000) ? (1 - 0.25) ?$9 = 194,444 pairs of jeans 3. a. If the contribution margin per unit increases by 10%, the new contribution margin would be: New contribution margin = $30 ? 1.10 -$21 = $9.90 per unit To earn a net income of$450,000 with this new contribution margin, we use the same formula as in part 2b: Required sales = ($1,200,000 +$300,000 + $450,000) ? (1 - 0.25) ?$9.90 = 186,869 pairs of jeans b. If the selling price is increased to $32.50, the new contribution margin would be: New contribution margin =$32.50 - $21 =$11.50 per unit To earn a net income of $450,000 with this new selling price, we use the same formula as in part 2b: Required sales = ($1,200,000 + $300,000 +$450,000) ? (1 - 0.25) ? $11.50 = 141,304 pairs of jeans c. If the company outsources manufacturing to an overseas company and saves 60% of fixed manufacturing costs while increasing variable costs by$2.00, the new contribution margin would be: New contribution margin = $30 - ($21 + $2) =$7 per unit To earn a net income of $450,000 with this new cost structure, we use the same formula as in part 2b: Required sales = ($1,200,000 ? 0.4 + $300,000 +$450,000) ? (1 - 0.25) ? $7=$2,000,000 ? $6 = 333,333 pairs of jeans Note: We multiplied the fixed manufacturing costs by 0.4 (60% cost savings) before adding to the other fixed costs. Do you know the answer?
