1 ? Appropriate Transfer Prices: Opportunity Costs

Plains Peanut Butter Company recently acquired a peanut?processing company that has a normal

annual capacity of 4,000,000 pounds and that sold 2,800,000 pounds last year at a price of $2.00

per pound. The purpose of the acquisition is to furnish peanuts for the peanut butter plant, which

needs 1,600,000 pounds of peanuts per year. It has been purchasing peanuts from suppliers at the

market price. Production costs per pound of the peanut?processing company are as follows:

Direct materials

$0.50

Direct labor

0.24

Variable overhead

0.12

Fixed overhead at normal

capacity

0.22

Total

$1.08

Management is trying to decide what transfer price to use for sales from the newly acquired Peanut

Division to the Peanut Butter Division. The manager of the Peanut Division argues that $2.00, the

market price, is appropriate. The manager of the Peanut Butter Division argues that the cost price of

$1.08 (or perhaps even less) should be used since fixed overhead costs should be recomputed. Any

output of the Peanut Division up to 2,800,000 pounds that is not sold to the Peanut Butter Division

could be sold to regular customers at $2.00 per pound.

(a) Compute the annual gross profit for the Peanut Division using a transfer price of $2.00.

(b) Compute the annual gross profit for the Peanut Division using a transfer price of $1.08.
