Lisa, a perceptive student in the SCSU MBA program, noted the popularity of the HP-12c calculators used by students in her finance classes. She also saw that certain business school professors doggedly carried these calculators around for decades like some kind of religious talisman.

She saw an opportunity and decided to start a company selling accessories that support the HP-12c lifestyle and that makes the lives of HP-12c lovers more enjoyable and fulfilling.

Lisa is considering several products to include in her initial line:

Carrying case: Made from genuine leather and spandex. It comes in a variety of colors. Clips to belt or purse to keep the HP-12c always close at hand.

The carrying case would be sold to the end consumer for $39.99. Lisa will not sell directly to the consumer but will use a wholesaler who will sell to a retailer (e.g., university book stores). The retailer’s margin is 50% and the wholesaler’s margin is 12%. The fixed cost involved in manufacturing the cases is $280,000 and the variable costs are $6.25 per case. Lisa is considering an advertising budget of $300,000. Miscellaneous variable costs (e.g., shipping and handling) paid by Lisa’s company come to $0.08 per case. Lisa has decided to use salespeople to encourage adoption by wholesalers, and the salespeople will be paid entirely by a 10% commission on the manufacturer’s (i.e., Lisa’s) selling price. The product manager’s salary is $65,000.

  1. What is the price of the manufacturer (Lisa’s company) charges the wholesaler?
  2. What is the manufacturer’s (Lisa’s) unit margin (contribution/profit per unit excluding fixed costs) for the cases (in $)?
  3. How many units must be sold to turn a profit?

After conducting an extensive market-sizing study, Lisa’s best guess is that she is likely to sell 82,000 cases in her first year. This projection is based on the price, advertising and sales support listed above. Lisa is considering several possible changes to her marketing plan to try and increase her sales over the 82,000 baselines.

  1. How much profit will Lisa’s company earn if she sells 82,000 cases?
  1. Calculate the total sales volume (in units) needed to maintain the current estimated profit (#4) if Lisa doubles her advertising budget.
  2. Calculate the total sales volume (in units) needed to maintain the current estimated profit (#4) if Lisa lowers the price to the wholesalers to $12.00.
  3. Calculate the total sales volume (in units) needed to maintain the current estimated profit (#4) if Lisa increases the sales force’s commission to 15%. Get Operations Management homework help today
