Keep-Or-Drop Decision, Alternatives, Relevant Costs

Reshier Company makes three types of rug shampooers. Model 1 is the basic model rented through hardware stores and supermarkets. Model 2 is a more advanced model with both dry-and wet-vacuuming capabilities. Model 3 is the heavy-duty riding shampooer sold to hotels and convention centers. A segmented income statement is shown below.

The company’s controller gathered additional information on fixed costs to see why they were so high. The following information on activities and drivers was gathered:

Engineering $86,000   Engineering hours 750   71 179

Customer service $100,000   Service calls 13,400   1,480 19,179                  

In addition, Model 1 requires the rental of specialized equipment costing $22,000 per year.
