Chapter 6:  Vader Collectibles, Inc. Part 2 Graded Homework Assignment

Spring 2017

When Darth Vader isn’t too busy ridding the galaxy of rebel scum, he enjoys running his own business, Vader Collectibles, Inc. Vader Collectibles sells premium-quality model Death Stars. The model Death Stars include miniature superlasers with enough power to destroy the four Rebel Trooper action figures that are included with purchase.

After making Vader Collectibles, Inc. profitable by using the awesome power of managerial accounting, Darth Vader has decided to apply for a bank loan in order to obtain funds to expand the business. Up until now, Darth Vader has only been using contribution margin income statements and variable costing, but the bank has requested a traditional income statement that uses absorption costing, which is required by Galactic GAAP.

Information (used for Questions 1-4) on Vader Collectibles, Inc. for the past year is below:

 Selling price per unit \$90 Units in beginning inventory 25,000 Units produced 65,000 Units sold 77,000 Units in ending inventory 13,000 Variable costs per unit: Direct Materials \$35 Direct Labor \$14 Variable manufacturing overhead \$8 Variable selling and administrative \$11 Fixed costs Fixed manufacturing overhead (total) \$455,000 Fixed manufacturing overhead (per unit) \$7 Fixed selling and administrative \$650,000

Darth Vader realizes that none of the pesky rebels have been buying his model Death Stars, so he is missing out on a sizeable amount of customers.  In response, he plans to open a new business segment and sell model X-Wings, which should be more attractive to rebel customers.

Vader believes that if he adds the X-Wing segment, the following information (used for Questions 5 and 6) will be true:

 Company-wide sales \$12,730,000 Company-wide variable expense ratio 68% Company-wide net operating income \$1,525,000 Death Star segment variable expenses \$5,236,000 Death Star segment variable expenses ratio 70% Death Star traceable fixed expenses \$1,025,000 X-Wing segment margin \$989,000

Requirements:

Using the information presented above, perform the following:

1.    Show how the amount of fixed manufacturing overhead per unit is calculated.

2.    Calculate product cost per unit using both variable and absorption costing.

3.    Calculate the amount of Net Operating Income under absorption costing.

4.    Prepare Vader Collectible’s absorption costing income statement.

5.    Prepare Vader Collectible’s segmented income statement.

6.    Calculate Vader Collectible’s company-wide break-even point in sales dollars.
