Now that your cookie business is well underway, you are going to use the knowledge that you have gained in this course to evaluate the financial information for the company. You will be creating a series of reports and analyzing the results using the templates provided to guide you through the project. The learning objectives of this project are as follows:

1. Apply accounting concepts and standards to the creation of accounting information and reports.
2. Analyze accounting information used to make strategic business decisions.
3. Apply ethical behavior to accounting-related situations.
4. Make business decisions based on analyzing accounting data.

• Calculate the weighted average CM.
• Calculate the breakeven point.

Complete your calculations by filling in the highlighted cells, and embed a copy of the completed spreadsheet into this report. Discuss the results based on your calculations as far as which type of cookie you think is the most profitable, which has the highest CM, etc.

Part 2: Based on the data presented in the Unit VII Spreadsheet Template in Excel (Full Variable tab), complete the calculations listed below.

Discuss if you think the cookie business should accept or reject the purchase of the new equipment and why. Additional information has come to your attention regarding the equipment purchase. One of the partner’s brother owns the company that sells the equipment and insists the equipment is needed. Discuss any ethical concerns you see with this type of transaction.

Part 5: Based on the data presented in the Unit VII Spreadsheet Template in Excel (Cash Budget tab), calculate the cash receipts for the first quarter of this year. Complete your calculations by filling in the highlighted cells, and embed a copy of the completed spreadsheet into this report.
