Issues and reasons

There are some issues are identified according to the information provided. Such as:

- It had been a tough quarter with the economy still in the recession and the impact this was having on the retail sector.

- Bank is raising interest rates in line with the increased upward international pressures and Ed has a significant part of their loan funds on a variable interest rate which change directly with market conditions.

- The sales seems to be holding up reasonably well as first quarter results are generally impacted by factors relating to public and school holidays but there was concerned about the discounts that had to be given to generate these sales.

Causes:

- Ed could not get into some national magazines this quarter to promote the store offers.

- It helps the Ed exceed the set budget.

- Wages and salaries running bit high.

Variances

Typical variance report will compare actual to budget and create a $ variances to the budget and a % variances to it as well. These two variances highlight areas that need to be investigated for corrective action.

Actual to budget

There are many differences between the set budget of first qtr. of the Ed and actual of the first qtr. Such as -6% differences in sales and 1% in cost of goods sold. Gross profit has a 1% if difference between in actual and budget that is a favourable. There are many things are same in the actual and budget such as - Accounting Fees, Depreciation, Insurance, Superannuation, Payroll and worker compensation etc. . The big difference is in the net profit and income tax.

The biggest reasons for variances are occurred because of the recitation hit to the economy and the bank interest rate is also increased. The one other factor is discount that had to be given to generate the sale

Performance

As per needs for future profit expectations budget is still low in margin as comparative

· Wages and salaries a little high with 12.2% at Ed as a 22% of sales, however the industry average is more like 11%.

· Average time for debtors to pay accounts is increasing; however, there should not be a concern to cash flow as yet as a majority of debtors remain within 30 days.

Response to board questions:

· Ed’s financial viability for profit on target for the first quarter which is the seasonally slowest quarter of the year.

· The variance report identifies the gross profit margin that the company was able to maintain its gross profit margin in line with the budget.

Recommendations

Analysing profitability and cash flows should be take over a series of past period to identify trends in the underlying data of this analysis should be on:

Growth , Stability, Sustainability:-

· The potential for the business and the way the growth is to be adequately managed. Such as the discount policy needs to review to protect the gross profit margin.

· Salaries and wages policy needs to review to manage the budget, extra reduce costs and improve viability.

Plan to revise the budget to include adjustments to the advertising budget with the $50,000 added to the next quarter.

· Salaries and wages policy needs to review to manage the budget, extra reduce costs and improve viability

· Apply more discounts on public holidays

Evaluation

· Budgets are prepared for all cost centres such as all cleaning and maintenance charges, bank interest rates, insurance and all taxes.

· Budget monitoring and reporting policy is shortened to monthly basis.

· Restructure loan into fixed interest rate to take out the volatility in result

Appendix 5 – Ed’s Whitegoods Ltd Assumptions for 2015 financial year

Following research on market trends and consumer confidence, as well as inflation and other factors, Ed has provided you with the following set of assumptions for the 2015 business year.

1. Purchase cost of goods is set to rise by 5%

2. Decreased consumer confidence means that sales are expected to decrease by 12%

3. Ed believes he can increase his sale prices by 8% which should have minimal impact on overall sales, perhaps reducing total sales by a further 3%

4. Ed plans on reducing his expenses by laying off one of his part time staff members who has a yearly salary of $47,000. This is hoped to have only minimal impact on productivity
