Q1) Austin's Shooters, Inc. operates paintball course where customers can come to play paintball games and stage organized matches with their friends. Their accountant, Denny Dinsdale, has made income statement (presented below) depicting their first year's operating data in contribution margin format. News is not good, given loss of $30,000. Though, Denny describes that this is the reason that presentation is in this format. That is, Austin Douglas, owner and manager of Austin's Shooters, Inc. can utilize statement to find out what will occur next year given changes in volume.

Income Statement For the Year Ended December 31, 2004
Revenue:  
Admission fees (1,600 shooters) $80,000
Supplies and Concessions $24,000
Total Revenue ($65 per unit) $104,000
Variable Costs:  
Cost of supplies & Concessions Sold $14,000
Electricity (purchased per KWH) $30,000
Wages of Games Coordinators (DL) $40,000
Liability Insurance (based on # of customers) $10,000
Total Variable Costs $94,000
Contribution Margin $10,000
Fixed Costs:  
Depreciation - Bldg & Fixtures $12,000
Advertising $3,000
Heat and Light for Bldg. $5,000
Property Taxes $20,000
Total Fixed Costs $40,000
Operating Income $<30,000>

After careful review, Austin tells Denny that classifications are not all correct. Austin enumerates three issues as follows:

1. Electricity cost is simply for lighting rather large area of land for play at night and is always on after sunset regardless of how many shooters are on site.

2. Though wages of games coordinators are hourly, they are needed to be present during all working hours to help make sure safety of shooters. Number of workers is adequate for up to 4,000 customers annually.

3. As liability insurance amount is based on number of shooters it does differ with volume, but it only increases for increments of every extra 5,000 shooters. Volume is expected to increase to 2,500 shooters next year, but 5,000 shooters clearly exceed relevant range of expected operations for foreseeable future.

Denny has assured Austin that information is correct and that expenses are properly categorized.

Denny proposes that Austin must either try to ramp up capacity and operations or shut down. This suggestion is based on the fact that it would take 6,400 shooters to break even under current structure. Denny further argues that at 6,400 shooters, more workers would be required and liability insurance would double. Presently his numbers do not even comprise those increased costs. Austin claims he can break even at 2,134 shooters and at projected level of 2,500 shooters make decent profit. Which break even point and income/loss computaion is right?
