A Nike women's-only store in California offers women's running, training, and sportswear products and also contains an in-store fitness studio for group and personal fitness training sessions. The store consistently earns profits in excess of $437,000 per year and is located on prime real estate in the center of town. The store owner pays $18,000 per month in rent for the building. A real estate agent approached the owner and informed her that she could add $7,700 per month to her firm's profits by renting out the portion of her store that she uses as a fitness studio. While the prospect of acquiring this rental income was enticing, the owner believed the use of that space as a fitness studio was an important contributor to her store's profits. What is the opportunity cost of continuing to operate the fitness studio within the store?

You have purchased 1 million shares in a restaurant chain venture. At this zero-stage investment, your company’s assets are $110,000 plus the idea for your new product. Look back at your restaurant chain venture. Suppose that when you first approach your friendly VC, he decides that your shares are worth only $1.00 each. a. How many shares will you need to sell to raise the additional $1,370,000?
b. What fraction of the firm will you own after the VC investment? (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.)

Answers

Answer:

(a) 1,370,000 shares

(b) 42.19%

Explanation:

Given that,

Shares in a restaurant chain venture = 1,000,000 shares

Price of each share = $1.00

(a) To raise the additional $1,370,000:

Shares will you need to sell:

= Additional amount ÷ Price of each share

= $1,370,000 ÷ $1.00

= 1,370,000 shares

(b) No. of Shares After investment:

= Shares need to sell + Shares in a restaurant chain venture

= 1,370,000 + 1,000,000

= 2,370,000 shares

Therefore, the fraction of the firm will you own after the VC investment:

= (Shares in a restaurant chain venture ÷ No. of Shares After investment) × 100

= (1,000,000 ÷ 2,370,000) × 100

= 0.4219 × 100

= 42.19%

SecuriCorp operates a fleet of armored cars that make scheduled pickups and deliveries in the Los Angeles area. The company is implementing an activity-based costing system that has four activity cost pools: Travel, Pickup and Delivery, Customer Service, and Other. The activity measures are miles for the Travel cost pool, number of pickups and deliveries for the Pickup and Delivery cost pool, and number of customers for the Customer Service cost pool. The Other cost pool has no activity measure because it is an organization-sustaining activity. The following costs will be assigned using the activity-based costing system: Driver and guard wages $ 960,000 Vehicle operating expense 390,000 Vehicle depreciation 270,000 Customer representative salaries and expenses 300,000 Office expenses 160,000 Administrative expenses 460,000 Total cost $ 2,540,000 The distribution of resource consumption across the activity cost pools is as follows: Travel Pickup and Delivery Customer Service Other Totals Driver and guard wages 50 % 35 % 10 % 5 % 100 % Vehicle operating expense 70 % 5 % 0 % 25 % 100 % Vehicle depreciation 60 % 15 % 0 % 25 % 100 % Customer representative salaries and expenses 0 % 0 % 90 % 10 % 100 % Office expenses 0 % 20 % 30 % 50 % 100 % Administrative expenses 0 % 5 % 60 % 35 % 100 % Required: Complete the first stage allocations of costs to activity cost pools.

Answers

Answer:

SecuriCorp

The First level Allocations will be:

Of a total cost of $2,540,000

Travel allocated costs is $915,000

Pick Up and Delivery is $451,000

Customer Service is $690,000

Others is $484,000

Explanation:

the next level of allocation will be to determine the cost rate based on the Activity Measures, however these were not provided in the question

Activity Based Costing is a costing technique that allocates costs based on the activity level of certain pre-determined cost drivers.

Instead of taking the pool of costs and dividing it by Volume to arrive at an Average Costs, Activity Based Costing believes all components leading to the cost generated should bear the burden of the cost by determining the Driver rate per activity.

If from the example we have worked above, we are told the number of miles covered is 20,000 miles and the actual Cost we worked out for Travels was $960,000. This implies we have an activity rate of $48 Per mile covered as travels costs.

The same would apply to Customer Services if for example 3,000 customers were attended to in the period, the Rate Per Customer will become $690,000 divided by 3,000 = $230 Per Customer

With these indices, it is easy to then allocate costs on the basis of miles traveled + Customers Attended to etc

Final answer:

To allocate costs to the activity cost pools, multiply the total costs by the resource consumption percentages provided for each activity.

Explanation:

In order to allocate costs to the activity cost pools, we need to use the distribution of resource consumption percentages provided. Let's calculate the cost allocation for each activity cost pool:

  1. Travel cost pool: Multiply total costs by 50% for driver and guard wages, 70% for vehicle operating expense, and 60% for vehicle depreciation.
  2. Pickup and Delivery cost pool: Multiply total costs by 35% for driver and guard wages, 5% for vehicle operating expense, and 15% for vehicle depreciation.
  3. Customer Service cost pool: Multiply total costs by 10% for driver and guard wages, 0% for vehicle operating expense, and 0% for vehicle depreciation, and 90% for customer representative salaries and expenses.
  4. Other cost pool: Multiply total costs by 5% for driver and guard wages, 25% for vehicle operating expense, and 25% for vehicle depreciation, and 10% for customer representative salaries and expenses, and 50% for office expenses, and 35% for administrative expenses.

Marigold Company owns equipment that cost $936,000 and has accumulated depreciation of $395,200. The expected future net cash flows from the use of the asset are expected to be $520,000. The fair value of the equipment is $416,000. Prepare the journal entry, if any, to record the impairment loss.

Answers

Answer:

Dr Impairment expense (p/l)   $20,800

Cr Accumulated depreciation   $20,800

Being entries to recognize the impairment of asset.

Explanation:

An asset is said to be impaired when the carrying amount is higher than the recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the higher of the value in use (the expected future net cash flows from the use of the asset) and the  fair value less cost to sell.

Given;

Cost = $936,000

Accumulated depreciation = $395,200

Carrying amount = $936,000 - $395,200

= $540,800

The recoverable amount is the expected future net cash flows from the use of the asset $520,000 as this is higher than the fair value of the equipment which is $416,000.

Since the carrying amount is higher than the recoverable amount, the asset is impaired.

Impairment = $540,800 - $520,000

= $20,800

The journal entries,

Dr Impairment expense (p/l)   $20,800

Cr Accumulated depreciation   $20,800

Being entries to recognize the impairment of asset.

Two firms, A and B, each currently dump 50 tonnes of chemicals into the local river. From now on both firms will require a pollution permit for each tonne of pollution dumped into the river. The government gives each firm 20 tonnes’ worth of pollution permits, which it can either use or sell to the other firm. It costs Firm A $100 for each tonne of pollution that it eliminates before it reaches the river, and it costs Firm B $50 for each tonne of pollution that it eliminates before it reaches the river. What is likely to happen?

Answers

Answer:

10 fewer tons of pollution into the river and Firm B will dump 50 fewer tons of pollution into the river.

Explanation:

Firm B will SELL ALL of its allotted 20 permits, and clean up all of its 50 units of pollution. The price per permit will be above $50 each. Firm A will BUY ALL 20 of B's permits. It will then dump 40 tons into the water, and will clean up its remaining 10. The price it pays for a permit will be under $100.

Answer:

Firm B will sell all its permits to Firm A  i.e ( lesser chemical dumps into the river )

Explanation:

Firm B will rather sell all its 20 tonnes worth of pollution permit to firm A because it would cause Firm B lesser than Firm A when they dispose off their wastes before it gets to the River hence they will rather dispose off their waste rather than paying/purchasing pollution permits while

Firm A will buy out all of Firm B's allotted pollution permits to reduce the number of tonnes they would dispose off before getting to the river. this is because it would cause them more when they dispose off their waste before getting it to the river. hence the End product of the whole arrangement will be  Chemical dumps into the River will be reduced drastically to 40 overall instead of 100 due to the cost of dumping permits.
