Question: blendit bld manufactures cordless mixers for use in the kitchens...

Question details

Blendit (BLD) manufactures cordless mixers for use in the kitchens of consumers. BLD sells to retailers, which sell the mixers to the ultimate consumer. One of BLD's retail customers is Chef's Toolbox (CTX). On January 1, BLD sells to and receives payment from CTX for 100 cordless mixers with a one-year warranty for $50 each. BLD delivers the mixers to CTX upon receipt of payment, and the warranty is initiated at that time as well by BLD. This warranty provides for a replacement of the mixer if the mixer fails to work properly within one year of the date of purchase. BLD also sells its mixers with no warranty for $40 per unit. The cost to manufacture each mixer is $32.

BLD also provides its retail customers with sales incentives in the form of volume discounts on purchases of mixers with warranties paid at the end of an annual period. The agreement between BLD and CTX provides for the following volume discounts. Additionally, the probability of purchases for each volume level as estimated by BLD is provided based on historical experience and forecasted sales.

Number of mixers purchased



Less than 1,000



1,000 through 1,999



2,000 or more



The discounts are retroactive. If 2,000 mixers are purchased during the year, a discount of 10% will be applied to all 2,000 mixers.
