Mark Sexton and Todd Story, the owners of S&S Air, have been in discussions with an aircraft dealer in Europe about selling the company’s Eagle airplane. The Eagle sells for $98,000 and has a variable cost of $81,000 per airplane. Amalie Diefenbaker, the dealer, wants to add the Eagle to her current retail line. Amalie has told Mark and Todd that she feels she will be able to sell 15 airplanes per month in Europe. All sales will be made in euros, and Amalie will pay the compnay 78,400 euros for each plane. Amalie proposes that she order 15 aircraft today for the first month’s sales. She will pay for all 15 aircraft in 90 days. This order and payment schedule will continue each month. Mark and Todd are confident they can handle the extra volumen with their existing facilities, but they are unsure about the potential financial risks of selling their aircraft in Europe. In their discussion with Amalie, they found out that the current exchange rate is $1.25/euro. This means that they can convert the 78,400 euros prer airplane paid by Amalie to $98,000. Thus, this profit on the international sales is the same as the profit on dollar-denominated sales. Mark and Todd decided to ask Chris Guthrie, their financial analyst, to prepare an analysis of the proposed international sales. Specifically, they ask Chris to anser the following questions. Ignoring taxes, what are S&S Air’s projected gains or losses from this proposed arrangement at the current exchange rate of $1.25/euro? happens to profits if the exchange rate changes to $1.39/euro? At what exchange rate will the company break even?
