Precision Machines is preparing a financial plan for the next six months to determine the financial needs of the company. The historical analysis of the company’s sales shows that the company’s total sales are 30% cash sales and 70% credit sales.  Further analysis of credit sales shows that the company receives 50% of the credit sales one month after the sale and the remaining 50% in the second month after the sale. This means the cash collections from sales are 30% in the first month of the sale, 35% in the second month, and 35% in the third month. 

 

The materials purchased by the company amounts to 50% of the sales for the month.  The company pays for the purchases one month after the initial purchase. The company likes to maintain a cash balance of $5,000. The cost of borrowing is 10%.  The company plans to pay off the loan whenever there is a surplus and borrow when there is a deficit.
