Manny Fold owns a factory that specializes in making titanium valves for high performance engines on

a just in time basis. Thus, Manny produces what he sells in a particular month. There are no

inventories of finished goods or work in process. However, Manny does require that an inventory of

direct raw materials equal to 20% of next month’s production requirement be available at the end of

each month. To build his business and gain new customers Manny has extended generous credit terms

to his customers. While Manny is confident about the fundamentals of his business, he is concerned

about the possible income and cash flow implications.

The variable costs of producing a valve are budgeted at $7.20 per valve for direct materials (3/4 pound

of titanium alloy costing $9.60 per pound), $2.80 per valve for direct labor, and $5.50 per valve for

variable manufacturing overhead. Fixed manufacturing overhead is budgeted at $74,700 per month

during the 2nd quarter. The detailed components of variable and fixed overhead are as listed below. Second (group) project


For variable overhead, electric power is budgeted at $2.30 per unit, indirect labor is budgeted at $2.50

per unit, and supplies are budgeted at $.70 per unit. For fixed overhead depreciation is budgeted at

$10,000 per month, Supervision and other factory salaries are budgeted at $40,000 per month, property

tax and insurance combined are budgeted at $8,000 per month, maintenance is budgeted at $7,000 per

month, licensing fees and permits to use proprietary technology are budgeted at $3,400 per month, and

other miscellaneous fixed overhead expenses are budgeted at $6,300 per month.


Manny’s customers drive a hard bargain because they can easily switch suppliers. They all do pay

eventually, but many of them take their time about doing so and Manny is reluctant to get tough with

them for fear they will take their business elsewhere. He tells you that all his sales are on credit (no

cash sales). He typically collects only 10% of sales in the month of the sale, 30% of sales in the month

after the sale and 60% of sales two months later (for example 10% of June sales would be collected in

June, 30% in July and 60% in August). On the other hand he must pay for 70% of his materials

purchases in the same month of the purchase and 30% in the month after. Cash costs of labor and

overhead other than depreciation, property taxes and insurance are paid in the same month they are

incurred. Property taxes and insurance are paid up through June 15. The amount due for the next 6

months (starting June 16) must be paid in early June.


All of the selling and administrative expenses are fixed. Monthly fixed selling and administrative costs,

other than interest, amount to $43,600, of which $6,000 is depreciation. These operating costs,

excepting depreciation, are paid in cash in the month incurred. Manny has large tax loss carry forwards

from a previous unsuccessful business venture. Therefore he does not expect to pay any income taxes

this year. (In other words you may ignore income taxes).


Manny plans to buy new equipment costing $80,000 during the month of June. This equipment will be

ready for use starting in July.


The budgeted selling price of valves for April, May, and June is $23 per valve. Because of market

competition there is not much flexibility to adjust the price and the price is expected to be stable during

the 2nd quarter of 2014. Manny budgeted sales in units for April at 17,000 units. For May he expects

to sell only 18,000 units. He is uncertain about sales for June and July. His high forecast for these two

months is 22,000 units for June and 20,000 for July. His low forecast is 19,000 units for June and

18,000 units for July.


Manny requires a minimum cash balance of $10,000 at the end of each month. If the budgeted month

end cash balance will fall below this level Manny plans to borrow enough cash at the beginning of that

same month to keep his ending balance up to the minimum level. Manny’s bank charges him interest at

the rate of ½ % per month on the balance outstanding during that month. Manny pays the interest at the

beginning of the following month and plans to repay as much as he can at the beginning of that month

without letting his budgeted cash balance go below $10,000 at month end. (On the budgeted income

statement round interest expense to the nearest dollar) Second (group) project


The company’s managerial accountant has resigned unexpectedly before the 2nd quarter budget could

be completed. You have been contracted to complete the master budget for June and for the 2nd

quarter (including some missing numbers from May). Balances as of March 31 for all relevant

accounts have already been calculated by this accountant together with some of the amounts for April

and May. You may assume that these balances and amounts shown in the tables below are correct.




1) Construct Manny’s budgeted income statement for June and the total for the 2nd

quarter. April and May have already been provided. Complete the template provided

below. Show any necessary calculations. You may use either the high forecast or the

low forecast for this budget. Choose either the high or the low.(4 points)

2) Using the same forecast as in requirement 1 construct Manny’s budget for raw materials

purchases in June and the total for the 2nd quarter (You will also have to complete the

budget for May) Complete the template provided which already has information for

April and May. (3 points)

3) Using the same forecast as you used in requirement 1 construct Manny’s cash budgets

for June and the total for the 2nd quarter (You will also have to provide the missing

number for May payments for purchases). Complete the templates provided below

which already have information for April and May. Show any necessary calculations.

(4 points)

4) Using the same forecast as you used in requirement 1 construct Manny’s budgeted

balance sheet at the end of June. Complete the template provided which already has the

March 31 balances. (3 points)

5) During March Manny actually produced and sold 16,500 valves. Actual sales revenues

were $381,950. Actual costs and the original March budget based on 16,000 valves

were as detailed in the table below. Complete the table by constructing a flexible

budget based on 16,500 valves and determining the variances for the performance

report. Your performance report should be similar to the performance report shown in

exhibit 10.13 of page 611 except your report includes more detailed production cost line

items. Use the template provided below for your answer. (5 points)

6) Write a brief report explaining some possible reasons why Manny’s profits were different

from the amount projected in the master budget for March (2 points).
