Rolen, Inc., is in the process of preparing the fourth quarter budget for 2010, and the following data have been assembled:
•The company sells a single product at a price of $55 per unit. The estimated sales volume for the next six months is as follows:
September 15,600 units
October 14,400 units
November 16,800 units
December 24,000 units
January 10,800 units
February 12,000 units
All sales are on account. The company’s collection experience has been that 30% of a month’s sales are collected in the month of sale, 68% are collected in the month following the sale, and 2% are uncollectible. It is expected that the net realizable value of accounts receivable (i.e., accounts receivable less allowance for uncollectible accounts) will be $583,440 on September 30, 2010.
•Management’s policy is to maintain ending finished goods inventory each month at a level equal to 30% of the next month’s budgeted sales. The finished goods inventory on September 30, 2010, is expected to be 4,320 units.
•To make one unit of finished product, 4 pounds of materials are required. Management’s policy is to have enough materials on hand at the end of each month to equal 40% of the next month’s estimated usage. The raw materials inventory is expected to be 24,192 pounds on September 30, 2010.
•The cost per pound of raw material is $2, and 70% of all purchases are paid for in the month of purchase; the remainder is paid in the following month. The accounts payable for raw material purchases is expected to be $36,461 on September 30, 2010.
