(a) Prepare a multiple-step income statement, a retained earnings statement, and a classified balance sheet.
[ (a) Net income $28,300, Tot. assets $313,800 ]
(b) Calculate the profit margin ratio and the gross profit rate.
(c) The vice president of marketing and the director of human resources have developed a proposal whereby the company would compensate the sales force on a strictly commission basis. Given the increased incentive, they expect net sales to increase by 25%. As a result, they estimate that gross profit will increase by $50,500 and expenses by $27,800. Compute the expected new net income. (Hint: You do not need to prepare an income statement.) Then, compute the revised profit margin ratio and gross profit rate. Comment on the effect that this plan would have on net income
and the ratios, and evaluate the merit of this proposal.
