Party-Time T-Shirts sells T-shirts for parties at the local college. The company completed the first year of operations, and the shareholders are generally pleased with operating results as shown by the following income statement:
Party-Time T-Shirts
Income statement
Year Ended December 31, 2015
Net sales revenue ………………….$350000
Cost of Goods Sold …………………210000
Gross profit…………………………..140000
Operating Expenses
Selling Expense ………………………40000
Administrative Expense ……………..25000
Net Income …………………………$75000
Bill Hildebrand, the controller, is considering how to expand the business. He proposes two ways to increase profits to $100,000 during 2016.
a. Hildebrand believes he should advertise more heavily. He believes additional advertising costing $20,000 will increase net sales by 30% and leave administrative expense unchanged. Assume that Cost of Goods Sold will remain at the same percentage of net sales as in 2015, so if net sales increase in 2016, Cost of Goods Sold will increase proportionately.
b. Hildebrand proposes selling higher-margin merchandise, such as party dresses, in addition to the existing product line. An importer can supply a minimum of 1,000 dresses for $40 each; Party-Time can mark these dresses up 100% and sell them for $80. Hildebrand realizes he will have to advertise the new merchandise, and this advertising will cost $5,000. Party-Time can expect to sell only 80% of these dresses during the coming year.
Help Hildebrand determine which plan to pursue. Prepare a single-step income statement for 2016 to show the expected net income under each plan.
