# The Sharpe Corporations projected sales for the first eight

This answer was rated:
The Sharpe Corporations projected sales for the first eight months of 2011 are as follows:
January \$89,100
Feb 119,400
March 134,900
April 240,200
May 300,700
June 269,000
July 225,200
Aug 150,200

Of Sharpe’s sales, 10 percent is for cash, another 60 percent is collected in the month following
sale, and 30 percent is collected in the second month following sale. November and December
sales for 2003 were \$220,000 and \$174,800, respectively.
Sharpe purchases its raw materials two months in advance of its sales equal to 60 percent of their
final sales price. The supplier is paid one month after it makes delivery. For example, purchases
for April sales are made in February and payment is made in March.
In addition, Sharpe pays \$9,800 per month for rent and \$20,900 each month for other expenditures.
Tax prepayments of \$21,800 are made each quarter, beginning in March.
The company’s cash balance at December 31, 2010, was \$22,000; a minimum balance of \$15,000
must be maintained at all times. Assume that any short-term financing needed to maintain the cash
balance is paid off in the month following the month of financing if sufficient funds are available.
Interest on short-term loans (10 percent) is paid monthly. Borrowing to meet estimated monthly
cash needs takes place at the beginning of the month. Thus, if in the month of April the firm expects
to have a need for an additional \$63,980, these funds would be borrowed at the beginning of April
with interest of \$533 (i.e., 10% x 1/12 x \$63,980) owed for April and paid at the beginning of May.

a. Prepare a cash budget for Sharpe covering the first seven months of 2011.

b. Sharpe has \$200,200 in notes payable due in July that must be repaid or renegotiated for
an extension. Will the firm have ample cash to repay the notes?
Can you please check the Figures for this question as I am not able to match the balance.

Also I have answered your other two questions. Let me know if you need any further clarification for those
