MGTB03 Managerial Accounting – Final Exam Review Questions

Question 1:
Faced with headquarters' desire to add a new product line, Stefan Grenier, manager of Bilti
Products' East Division, felt that he had to see the numbers before he made a move. His
division's return on investment (ROI) had led the company for three years, and he don't want any
letdown.”
Bilti Products is a decentralized wholesaler with four autonomous divisions. The divisions are
evaluated on the basis of ROI, with year-end bonuses given to divisional managers who have the
highest ROI. Operating results for the company's East Division for last year are given below:
Sales \$21,000,000
Variable expenses 13,400,000
Contribution margin 7,600,000
Fixed expenses 5,920,000
Operating income \$ 1,680,000
Divisional operating assets\$ 5,250,000
The company had an overall ROI of 18% last year (considering all divisions). The new product
line that headquarters wants Grenier's East Division to add would require an investment of
\$3,000,000. The cost and revenue characteristics of the new product line per year would be as
follows:
Sales \$9,000,000
Variable expenses65% of sales
Fixed expenses \$2,520,000
Required:
1. Compute the East Division's ROI for last year; also compute the ROI as it would appear if
the new product line is added.
2. If you were in Grenier's position, would you accept or reject the new product line? Explain.
3. Why do you suppose headquarters is anxious for the East Division to add the new product
line?
4. Suppose that the company's minimum required rate of return on operating assets is 15% and
that performance is evaluated using residual income.
1. Compute East Division's residual income for last year; also compute the residual
income as it would appear if the new product line is added.
2. Under these circumstances, if you were in Grenier's position, would you accept or
reject the new product line? Explain.

2. Stefan Grenier will be inclined to reject the new product line, since accepting it
would reduce his division’s overall rate of return.
3. The new product line promises an ROI of 21%, whereas the company’s overall
ROI last year was only 18%. Thus, adding the new line would increase the
company’s overall ROI.

total amount of his division’s residual income, as shown above.
