(c)

Compute the expected ROI in 2017 for the Home Division, assuming the following independent changes to actual data. (Round ROI to 1 decimal place, e.g. 1.5.)

The expected ROI

(1)                          Variable cost of goods sold is decreased by 7%.

%

(2)                          Average operating assets are decreased by 12%.

%

(3)                          Sales are increased by \$201,000, and this increase is expected to increase contribution margin by \$86,000.

%

 ROI = Net operating income / Average assets 1) If varaiable cost of goods sold is decreased by 7%, then revised net operating income = \$348,000 + \$675,000*7% = \$381750 ROI = \$381750 / \$2,000,000 = 19.7% 2) If average operating assets are decrease by 10%, then new average operating assets = \$1999,000 * 88% = \$1,759120 ROI = \$348,000 / \$1,759120 = 19.78% 3)Sales increased by \$201,000 resulting in increase in contribution margin by \$86,000, then new operating income = \$348,000 + \$86,000 = \$434000 ROI = \$434,000 / \$2,000,000 = 21.7%
