Financial Performance - Sample assessment 1 - task 7-a

You have been provided with the following information involving a company which operates an absorption costing system.

Scenario 1
Sales volume (units) - 120000
Revenue - 1680000
Gross profit - 600000
profit from operations - 275000
net assets - 2298400
inventory - 147950

Calculate the following performance indicators

Return on net assets - 11.96
Inventory holding period in days - 50
Sales price per unit - 14
Full production cost per unit - ?????

Can somebody pls help in finding out the full production cost per unit?

It should be direct material + direct labour + direct overheads
So I have calculated:
(revenue - profit from operations)/sales volume
(1680000 - 275000)/120000 = 11.71

However the correct answer is 9

• Ok, take you gross profit from your sales revenue and divide sales volume and it 9. Gross profit less revenue gives you cost of sales. Hope this helps
Oh gosh, sometimes we make it difficult! thank you for your reply

I have aslo issues in working out the below one which is the part b of the same question. Can you pls help again?

Net assets - gbp 175000
Return on net assets - 13%
Profit margin - 14%
Gearing - 32.75%
Profit to the nearest gbp - ???
Sales revenue to the nearest gbp - ???
• Return on NA = Net Profit / NA
Therefore:
Net Profit = NA x Return on NA
= 175,000 x 13%
= £22,750.

Profit margin = Net Profit / Sales revenue
Therefore:
Sales Revenue = Net Profit / Profit margin
= £22,750 / 14%
= £162,500.

See if you can lookup 'rearranging formulae' or similar in maths.
