Tharp Company operates a small factory in which it manufactures two products: C and D. Production and sales results for last year were as follows.
The research department has developed a new product (E) as a replacement for product D. Market studies show that Tharp Company could sell 10,000 units of E next year at a price of $115; the variable cost per unit of E is $45. The introduction of product E will lead to a 10% increase in demand for product C and discontinuation of product D. If the company does not introduce the new product, it expects next year's results to be the same as last year's.
Should Tharp Company introduce product E next year? Explain why or why not. Show calculations to support your decision.
