The company is planning its cash needs for the third quarter. In the past, Janus Products has had to borrow money during the third quarter to support peak sales of back-to-school materials, which occur during August. The following information has been assembled to assist in preparing a cash budget for the quarter: a. Budgeted monthly absorption costing income statements for July–October are as follows: July August September October Sales $ 47,000 $ 77,000 $ 57,000 $ 52,000 Cost of goods sold 22,000 40,000 26,000 24,000 Gross margin 25,000 37,000 31,000 28,000 Selling and administrative expenses: Selling expense 7200 11,400 8,500 6,800 Administrative expense* 5,400 6,900 5,900 5,900 Total selling and administrative expenses 12,600 18,300 14,400 12,700 Net operating income $ 12,400 $ 18,700 $ 16,600 $ 15,300 *Includes $1,600 depreciation each month. b. Sales are 30% for cash and 70% on credit. c. Credit sales are collected over a three-month period with 15% collected in the month of sale, 65% in the month following sale, and 20% in the second month following sale. May sales totaled $26,000, and June sales totaled $32,000. d. Inventory purchases are paid for within 15 days. Therefore, 50% of a month’s inventory purchases are paid for in the month of purchase. The remaining 50% is paid in the following month. Accounts payable for inventory purchases at June 30 total $11,600. e. The company maintains its ending inventory levels at 75% of the cost of the merchandise to be sold in the following month. The merchandise inventory at June 30 is $5,500. f. Land costing $4,400 will be purchased in July. g. Dividends of $1,400 will be declared and paid in September. h. The cash balance on June 30 is $8,400; the company must maintain a cash balance of at least this amount at the end of each month.

 

i.

 

The company has an agreement with a local bank that allows it to borrow in increments of $1,000 at the beginning of each month, up to a total loan balance of $43,000. The interest rate on these loans is 1% per month, and for simplicity, we will assume that interest is not compounded. The company would, as far as it is able, repay the loan plus accumulated interest at the end of the quarter.

 

 

The company's president is interested in knowing how reducing inventory levels and collecting accounts receivable sooner will impact the cash budget. He revises the cash collection and ending inventory assumptions as follows:

 

 

1.

 

Sales continue to be 30% for cash and 70% on credit. However, credit sales from July, August, and September are collected over a three-month period with 30% collected in the month of sale, 55% collected in the month following sale, and 15% in the second month following sale. Credit sales from May and June are collected during the third quarter using the collection percentages specified in the main section.

 

2. The company maintains its ending inventory levels for July, August, and September at 25% of the cost of merchandise to be sold in the following month. The merchandise inventory at June 30 remains $5,500 and accounts payable for inventory purchases at June 30 remains $11,600.

 

 

Required:

 

1.

 

Using the president’s new assumptions in (1) above, prepare a schedule of expected cash collections for July, August, and September and for the quarter in total. (Leave no cells blank - be certain to enter "0" wherever required. Do not round intermediate calculations. Omit the "$" sign in your response.)
