Houston-based Advanced Electronics manufactures audio speakers for desktop computers. The following data relate to the period just ended when the company produced and sold 41,000 speaker sets:
 
 
 
 
  Sales
$
3,280,000
 
  Variable costs
 
820,000
 
  Fixed costs
 
2,310,000
 
 
Management is considering relocating its manufacturing facilities to northern Mexico to reduce costs. Variable costs are expected to average $16 per set; annual fixed costs are anticipated to be $2,240,000. (In the following requirements, ignore income taxes.)
Required:
1.
Calculate the company’s current income and determine the level of dollar sales needed to double that figure, assuming that manufacturing operations remain in the United States. (Omit the “$” sign in your response.)
 
 
  Current income
150,000 $
  Required sales
3,480,000 $
 
2.
Determine the break-even point in speaker sets if operations are shifted to Mexico.
  Break-even point
35,000  units
3.
Assume that management desires to achieve the Mexican break-even point; however, operations will remain in the United States.
a.
If variable costs remain constant, by how much must fixed costs change? (Input the amount as positive value. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)
  Fixed costsby
210,000 $
b.
If fixed costs remain constant, by how much must unit variable cost change? (Input the amount as positive value. Do not round your intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)
  Variable costsby
6 $
4.
Determine the impact (increase, decrease, or no effect) of the following operating changes.
 
 
 
a.
 Effect of an increase in direct material costs on the break-even point.
 
b.
 Effect of an increase in fixed administrative costs on the unit contribution margin.
 
c.
 Effect of an increase in the unit contribution margin on net income.
 
d.
 Effect of a decrease in the number of units sold on the break-even point.
