A new out of state distributor has offered to buy 20,000 units next month for $0.80 each. These units would be marketed in other states and would not affect Windtrax’s sales through its normal channels. A study of the costs of this new business reveals the following:

? Direct materials costs are 100% variable.

? Per unit direct labor costs for the additional units would be 100% higher than normal because their production would require double overtime pay to meet the distributor’s deadline.

? Eighty percent of the normal annual overhead costs are fixed at any production level from 120,000 to 300,000 units. The remaining 20% is variable with volume.

? Accepting the new business would involve no additional selling expenses.

? Accepting the new business would increase administrative expenses by a $750 fixed amount.
