Analysis of the finance case study - Outdoor jackets

Number of Words : 3337


 This paper is based on the following case study -
 Case study: Outdoor jackets.
 Mahmud has just finished studying in a college and has just returned to work in his father’s factory, making outdoor clothes for mountaineering. The company has developed and patented a highly effective waterproof material with an attractive design. As a result the factory’s products are well sought after and the outdoor jackets sell at a premium price of £140.00 to outdoor shops and hiking organisations. Annual sales for the jackets are 18,000. Variable manufacturing costs are £60.00 per jacket and the present fixed costs is £840,000 per annum.
 The factory sells most of its products in the EU with growing interest in the US. Last year, export sales to the US accounted for 10% of total sales.
 Despite its success, the business currently has a bank overdraft of £500,000 and the bank charges interest at 1% per month on the overdraft. According to the accountant, the factory has been making a profit during the last year and should continue to make a profit over the next 6 months. The bank overdraft, however, would still not be paid off in 6 months’ time. Mahmud’s father is puzzled as to why a profitable business should still owe the bank money.
 Recently, the factory received an enquiry from a mountaineering organisation in India. The founder and director of the organisation, Kasikrisnan, tried out one of the jackets on a recent hiking trip on the Kangchenjunga Trek and is very impressed by the quality of the jacket. As result, he would like to start supplying the jacket in India. He is aware, however, that there would be very few buyers in India if the jackets are priced the same by the retailers in the EU. Kasi suggested that a reasonable price would be £90.00 and that the specification could be lowered slightly as the buyers in India would not be too fussy about the quality. By changing the design slightly, Mahmud estimates that the variable costs of the new design could be lowered to £50.00 per jacket.
 One evening, Mahmud was having dinner with a few friends. One of them suggested that Mahmud should prepare a budget for the business.
