Klean Fiber

Price: $1.99

Klean Fiber Company is the creator of Y-Go, a technology that weaves silver into its
fabrics to kill bacteria and odor on clothing while managing heat. Y-Go has become very
popular as an undergarment for sports activities. Operating at capacity, the company can
produce 1,000,000 undergarments of Y-Go a year. The per unit and the total costs for an
individual garment when the company operates at full capacity are as follows.

Direct materials   2.00  2,000,000
Direct labor   0.75  750,000
Variable manufacturing overhead   1.00  1,000,000
Fixed manufacturing overhead   1.50  1,500,000
Variable selling expenses   0.25  250,000
   Total  5.50  5,500,000

The U.S. Army has approached Klean Fiber and expressed an interest in purchasing
250,000 Y-Go undergarments for soldiers in extremely warm climates. The Army would pay
the unit cost for direct materials, direct labor, and variable manufacturing overhead costs.
In addition, the Army has agreed to pay an additional $1 per undergarment to cover all
other costs and provide a profit. Presently, Klean Fiber is operating at 70% capacity and
does not have any other potential buyers for Y-Go. If Klean Fiber accepts the Army’s offer,
it will not incur any variable selling expenses related to this order.

Using incremental analysis, determine whether Klean Fiber should accept the Army’s offer.
