Even Forward Ltd. is manufacturing and selling two products: Splash and Flash at selling price of Rs 3 and Rs. 4 respectively. The following sales strategy has been outlined for the year :--
Sales planned for year will be Rs. 7.20 lakhs in the case of Splash and Rs. 3.50 lakhs in the case of Flash.
To meet competition, the selling price of Splash will be reduced by 20% and that of Flash by 12 ½ % .
Break- even is planned at 60% of the total sale of each product.
Profit for the year to be achieved is planned as Rs 69,120 in the case of Splash and Rs 17,500 in the case of Flash. This would be possible by launching a cost reduction programme and reducing the present annual fixed expenses of Rs. 1,35,000 allocated as Rs. 1,08,000 to Splash and Rs. 27,000 to Flash.
You are required to present the proposal in financial terms giving clearly the following information:
