X-Cee-Ski Company recently expanded its manufacturing capacity, which will allow it to produce up to 21,000 pairs of cross-country skis of the mountaineering model or the touring model. The Sales Department assures management that it can sell between 9,000 and 14,000 pairs of either product this year. Because the models are very similar, X-Cee-Ski will produce only one of the two models. The following information was compiled by the Accounting Department: Fixed costs will total $320,000 if the mountaineering model is produced but will be only $220,000 if the touring model is produced. X-Cee-Ski is subject to a 40 percent income tax rate. Required: 1. If X-Cee-Ski Company desires an after-tax net income of $48,000, how many pairs of touring model skis will the company have to sell? 2. Suppose that X-Cee-Ski Company decided to produce only one model of skis. What is the total sales revenue at which X-Cee-Ski Company would make the same profit or loss regardless of the ski model it decided to produce? 3. If the Sales Department could guarantee the annual sale of 12,000 pairs of either model, which model would the company produce, and why? (CMA adapted)

Fixed costs will total $320,000 if the mountaineering model is produced but will be only $220,000 if the touring model is produced. X-Cee-Ski is subject to a 40 percent income tax rate.

Units =Total fixed cost + Target ProfitContribution margin=$220,000+$80,000($120$90)=$300,000$30=10,000 pairs

The number of units required to generate the after tax net income of $48,000 is 10,000
