 Jasmine Park encountered her boss, Rick Gompers, at the pop machine in the lobby. Rick is the vice president of marketing at Down South Lures Corporation. Jasmine was puzzled by some calculations she had been doing, so she asked him:

 Jasmine: "Rick, I'm not sure how to go about answering the questions that came up at the meeting with the president yesterday." Rick: "What's the problem?" Jasmine: "The president wanted to know the break even for each of the company's products, but I am having trouble figuring them out." Rick: "I'm sure you can handle it, Jasmine. And, by the way, I need your analysis on my desk tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. sharp so I can look at it before the follow-up meeting at 9:00."

 Down South Lures makes three fishing lures in its manufacturing facility in Alabama. Data concerning these products appear below.

 Frog Minnow Worm Normal annual sales volume 98,000 199,000 302,000 Unit selling price \$1.70 \$1.90 \$1.20 Variable cost per unit \$.80 \$1.20 \$.90

Total fixed expenses

for the entire company are \$261,000 per year. All three products

are sold in highly competitive markets, so the company is unable to

raise its prices without losing unacceptable numbers of customers.

The company has no work in process or finished goods inventories

due to an extremely effective lean manufacturing system.

1. What is the company's overall break-even point in total sales

dollars?

 2. Of the total fixed costs of \$261,000, \$22,680 could be avoided if the Frog lure product were dropped, \$113,400 if the Minnow lure product were dropped, and \$55,800 if the Worm lure product were dropped. The remaining fixed expenses of \$69,120 consist of common fixed costs such as administrative salaries and rent on the factory building that could be avoided only by going out of business entirely.

 a. What is the break-even point in units for each product? B. If the company sells exactly the break-even quantity of each product, what will be the overall profit or loss of the company?
