1. Variable Costs = Material Cost + Labor Cost + Shipping Cost
= 187.89+13.11+1.06 = 202.06 / Unit
Fixed Costs = 729,000 / Month
Price = 41,240,000 / 200,000 = 206.2
Contribution Margin = 206.2-202.6 = 4.14 / Unit

When it comes to the break even,
Contribution margin * Unit(BE) = Fixed Costs.
Unit(BE) = 729,000 / 4.14 = 176,086.96,
So the break even for Danshui is 176,087.

2. Based on the data in Exhibit 3,
Total expected cost / Unit = 41,140,000 / 200,000 = $205.7 / Unit
Actual cost / Unit = 38,148,000/180,000 = $211.93 / Unit

...Lyons Document Storage Corporation Case Analysis 1. Before maturity, a bond may be selling at the face value or at a price greater or lesser than the face value.The terms “premium” and “discount” refer to the difference that exists from the face value of the bond. Bonds selling at a price greater than the face value are said to be at a premium and the bonds selling at a price lesser than the face value are said to be at a discount. Premium or discount occurs when nominal interest rate(or coupon rate) of the bond differs from the current market rate of interest demanded by lenders.Regardless of the required yield, the bond price will reach face value as its approaches the maturity date.

Danshui Case No. 2

...Managerial Accounting Case #3 (Danshui Plant No. 2) – Instructions I would like to see all of your calculations as a part of your write-up (except for Question 3). For Q3, please attach any relevant tables as an appendix. Question 1: You’ll use the data provided in the first column of Exhibit 3 to calculate the break-even point (see chapter 3 lecture notes for details). Question 2: You’ll just compute the expected and actual total cost per unit. Question 3: Prepare a table with four columns: (1) flexible budget, (2) actual results, (3) variances, and (4) a column indicating whether a variance is favorable or unfavorable. Attach this table to the end of your write-up. Question 4: You’ll calculate the following: (1) the price and usage variance for the flash memory material cost, (2) the price and usage variance for the labor cost, and (3) the total variance for the overhead cost. Read the August Report (page 3) carefully. In this case, you don’t need the standard labor price information in order to calculate the labor price and usage variance. But, note that the standard labor price (or rate) is $0.92 per hour just in case you cannot figure out how to calculate the variances without using that information. Question 5: Think about the various cost variances (i.e., materials, labor, overhead) you calculated. Which one(s) should be the major concern for the manager? What are the causes of these variances (i.e., price variance or efficiency variance)? How can the......

Danshui Plant No.2 Case Study

...Danshui Plant No.2 Case Study Yuli Tang Rui Zhang Due Date: April 9, 2013 1. As we can see from the Exhibit 1, 176,087 Apple iPhone 4’s would have to have been completed for Danshui Plant No.2 to break even. 2. The total expected cost per unit was $205.7 per unit and the actual cost per unit was $211.93 per unit. See Exhibit 2. 3 & 4. The data is showing in the Exhibit 3 & 4. 5. From the data of question 3, the variance of revenue is favorable because Apple increased price of flash memory by $2. However the company didn’t gain profits from the revenue due to the increased price of flash memory provided by Samsung. The variance of flash memory is unfavorable because of two reasons: first reason is the price of each unit raised $2; the second reason is the company damaged 1,000 units of flash memory. So company used more flash memories than expected. The variance of 8 other chips is favorable, we cannot say the amount of chips decreased, so it should be the price of chips went down. The variance of supplies and tools is unfavorable. We think there are two reasons: company used the supplies and tools less efficient which means used more of supplies and tools, or company spend more money on purchase supplies and tools. The variance of labor is unfavorable, due to the wages of labor increased and working hours also increased, it was inefficient. The supervision is unfavorable because of the salary of supervisor increased. In conclusion, the actual net income is...

...MAIN ISSUE A part from reading the Danshui Plant No.2 case, we can see that there is no enough information to evaluate the performance of the pant for the first three contracts to assembly Apple iPhone 4. Analysis of the issue To get a clear picture a flexible budget was prepared for the month end of August 2010. (Shown in the table below) From the flexible that is prepared it can seen the performance of Danshui Plant NO.2 is not good enough as what it suppose to be. The budget show that Danshui has unfavorable variance in the assembly the flash memory part, variable tools and supplies, assembly and packing, shipping nad the last one on the supervision. As for the flash memory it has been stated that Samsung had raised the price by $2.00 which had been cover by the Apple as their neutralized the profit which supposedly to give a favorable variance. But for the budget it can seen that the flash memory is showing an unfavorable variance. This is due to lack of skills during the installation the labour which had lead wastage as they need to replace the damage flash memory with the new one. The replacement of the flash memory due wastage had increased the cost that is expected which had lead to unfavorable variance. Variable supplies and tools show an unfavorable variance has it has connection with installation of parts in the iPhone 4 especially on the flash memory installation part. .so when the labour done a wastage or reckless job during the installation of flash......

Danshui Case Study

...REFERENCES 12 INTRODUCTION AND MAIN ISSUES Danshui was a contract manufacturer that assembled electronic products for companies wishing to save labour costs by locating in southern China. Because of high demand for iPhone 4, Apple had contracted with Danshui to assemble iPhone in Plant No. 2. The contract need Danshui to assemble 2.4 million iPhone in the period between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011. Wentao Chen, manager of Danshui Plant No. 2 was worried because in the third month of the contract production was only 180,000 units per month. Suppose to produce 2.4 million iPhone its need 200,000 units per month. After preliminary budget has come out, the company loss of $672,000. The main issue of this case is the break contract between Danshui and Apple. The contract called Danshui to assemble 2.4 million in the period of one year, but Danshui only can produce 180,000 units per months. If Danshui still can produce that amount, it can’t reach 2.4 million in one year. This might happen because Danshui cannot find people to hire, even though they have raised wages by almost 30%. Another reason is they have problem with the Samsung flash memory installation. One thousand flash memories were damaged in August. Samsung is aware of this problem and has begun to install a shield to prevent the damage. However, it is just for prevention in the short time. Due to the contract has not been fulfilled, Danshui may be needed to pay back a lot of money for the......

Case #3 Danshui Plant No.2

...Case #3 Danshui Plant No.2 Answers 1. The break-even point for Danshui plant no 2 is 175874.54 units. The calculation of this number is simply from the break-even formula, fixed costs divided by contribution margin per unit. Fixed costs for the plant were 729 000 and the contribution margin is revenue minus variable costs which equals to 829 000 and the CM per unit is 829 000 / 180 000 which is 4,145. The break-even is therefore 175874.54 units. 2. The actual and expected cost per unit was 211,919 and 205,705 respectively. These numbers can be computed simply by dividing the total cost given in preliminary report-Exhibit 3 of the case- by the number of units. For actual cost per units it would be actual total costs which is 38 148 divided by 180 000 which will give 205.705 and for the expected cost per units, it is 41 140 divided by 200 000 which will give 211,919. 3. See exhibit 1 4. The price variance for the flash memory is equal to 362 000, it is calculated by multiplying 181 000 which is the actual quantity by the price difference (29-27) which is 2. The reason why the actual quantity is 181 000 and not 180 000 is because of the fact that in the production process, there were a thousand flash memories that were damaged. Therefore they actually used 181 000 flash memories. The usage variance is 27 000 and it is calculated by multiplying the standard price which is 27 by the quantity difference which is 1 000 (181 000- 180 000). ......

Danshui Case

...Apple Corporation released iPhone 4 on June 24, 2010 and sold more than 1.7 million units in the first three days. To prepare for the launch of the new product, Apple contracted with the Danshui Plant No. 2 to assemble the new iPhones. Danshui Plant No.2, a contract manufacturer in southern China that assembles electronic products for companies wishing to save on labor costs, received a one-year contract starting on June 1, 2010 with the Apple Corporation to assemble 2.4 million iPhone 4s. In the first three months of the contract it became obvious that the plant was unable to assemble the expected 200,000 iPhones per month and was operating at a loss. Although the plant is known for hiring semi-skilled workers, the new iPhone contract required a complex assembly process entirely based on handwork by 325 workers, with 140 steps involving 100 components during 5 days. To anticipate the need for qualified workers, Danshui had raised their factory wages by almost 30%. But even with the wage increase, Danshui was not able to hire enough qualified workers to assemble the complex new product. Another issue was that, based on original modeling, Danshui was actually operating at a loss and was unable to fill the expected 200,000 per month iPhone quota in the first three months. To begin analyzing the root causes for the shortfall, the controller had considered preparing a “flexible budget” to provide a more realistic comparison of the performance to the budget. If the plant...

...Problem Statement: How can Gaylord Bates Company lease a machine without reporting the lease as an asset and liability? Solution: There are two classifications of leases, Capital leases and Operating leases. In order for Gaylord Bates to avoid the equipment being put on their balance sheet as an asset, the lease must meet the criteria of an operating lease. In order for the lease to be considered an operating lease it must meet all of the following four criteria: 1) No transfer of ownership at the end of the lease term, 2) No bargain purchase option, 3) the lease term is less than 75% of the estimated 10 year economic life, and 4) the present value of the lease payments ($59,180) is less than 90% of the fair value of the leased property. In order for the lease to meet the final 2 requirements it must be a 7-year lease with a rate of 6% or higher. At 6% the present value of the payments equals $350,187 (87.5% of fair value).
