FINANCIAL & COST ACCOUNTING

Q1) ABC Ltd. Produces room coolers. The company is considering whether it should continue to manufacture air circulating fans itself or purchase them from outside. Its annual requirement is
25000 units. An outsider vendor is prepared to supply fans for Rs 285 each. In addition, ABC Ltd will have to incur costs of Rs 1.50 per unit for freight and Rs 10,000 per year for quality inspection, storing etc of the product.
In the most recent year ABC Ltd. Produced 25000 fans at the following total cost :
Material Rs. 50,00,000
Labour Rs. 20,00,000
Supervision & other indirect labour Rs. 2,00,000
Power and Light Rs. 50,000
Depreciation Rs. 20,000
Factory Rent Rs. 5,000
Supplies Rs. 75,000
Power and light includes Rs 20,000 for general heating and lighting, which is an allocation based on the light points. Indirect labour is attributed mainly to the manufacturing of fans. About 75% of it can be dispensed with along with direct labour if manufacturing is discontinued. However, the supervisor who receives annual salary of Rs 75,000 will have to be retained. The machines used for manufacturing fans which have a book value of Rs 3,00,000 can be sold for Rs 1,25,000 and the amount realized can be invested at 15% return. Factory rent is allocated on the basis of area, and the company is not able to see an alternative use for the space which would be released. Should ABC Ltd. Manufacture the fans or buy them?

Q2) Usha Company produces three consumer products : P, Q and R. The management of the company wants to determine the most profitable mix. The cost accountant has supplied the following data.

Abc Company Goes Global

...754 • Case 24 • ABC Chemical Company Goes Global The ongoing economic recession in Japan will continue to erode consumer purchasing power and confidence; luxury goods will suffer as consumers move toward cheaper products. This is already becoming evident: consumption of cognac and premium whisky is declining in Japan. Since TWO DOGS was launched in 1998, there has been massive growth in the sales volume of cheaper products, such as ‘‘Can Chu-Hi’’ and ‘‘Hyoketsu Chu-Hi’’. These locally made Japanese brands are, in convenience stores, almost half the price of fully imported TWO DOGS. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Should TWO DOGS maintain its premium price and thus risk losing volume growth to cheaper products during the recession? 2. What effect would lowering its price have on its brand positioning? 3. Would lowering its price require TWO DOGS to change to a licensing strategy? If so, should local production be in Japan? Or in nearby Asian countries with lower manufacturing costs, such as China or Thailand? 4. What other options does TWO DOGS have? Could the company change to a multi-brand strategy by introducing a new brand targeting the low-end segment? C ASE 24 ABC CHEMICAL COMPANY GOES GLOBAL Driven by competitive pressures, and the attractiveness of the industry’s fastest growing market in the world, a U.S.-based chemical manufacturer, ABC Chemical Company (name changed to maintain confidentiality) considered expansion into Asia, specifically, China.
