Skyview Manor

This case study is set in 1962 in rural Vermont. The Skyview Manor is an old, but wel/maintained property that has changed ownership several times over the years. It has no restaurant or bar. It is positioned as a mid-price, good quality "destination" resort hotel.

The Skyview Manor is open only during the skiing season. It opens on December 2 and closes the last day of March. The ski mountain that it serves operates on a permit from the state which allows only 120 days of operation per year. Each of the 50 rooms in the east wing rents for $15 for single occupancy or $20 for double occupancy. The west wing of the hotel has 30 rooms, all of which have spectacular views of the skiing slopes, the mountains, and the village. Rooms in this wing rentfor $20 and $25 for sitigle or double occupancy, respectively. The average occupancy rate during the season is about 80% (typically, the Hotel is full on weekends and averages 50 to 60 rooms occupied on week nights). The ratio of single versus double occupancy is 2:8, on average. . Operating results for the last fiscal year are shown in Exhibit 1. Mr. Kacheck, the manager of the hotel, is concerned about the off-season months, which show losses each month and reduce the high profits reported during the season. He has suggested to the owners, who acquired this hotel only at the end of the 1961 season, that to reduce the off-season losses, they should agree to keep the west wing of the hotel operating year-round. He estimates the average occupancy rate for the offseason to bl: between 20% and 40% for the next few years. Kacheck estimates that with careful attention to the off-season clientele a 40% occupancy rate for the 30 rooms during the off~season would be much more likely if the owners would commit $4,000 for advertising each year ($500 for each of eight months). There is no evidence to indicate that…...

Pvm Advertising

...Pleasant Valley Manor risks being sold to a private party in 2013. It possesses a huge budget debt reaching into the millions. Regrettably, the nursing home retained its roots of serving low-income residents causing it to lose hundreds of dollars on a daily basis. Currently, 171 out of the 174 at the nursing home are occupied. 74% of the inhabitants are low-income residents utilizing Medicare and welfare payments to “cover” the cost of residing at Pleasant Valley Manor. The Monroe County Government Commissioners no longer want to support the facility, but it will grant it one last chance. The following advertising plan aims to lead Pleasant Valley Manor into a solid financial ground. It takes a look at the current market situation affecting the nursing home. While Pleasant Valley Manor had its own SWOT Analysis, it was better to create a new one from an outsider’s point-of-view, so this plan also examines the manor’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Additionally, the plan takes into account Pleasant Valley’s Manor competitors. After studying the market and Pleasant Valley Manor’s competitors, this plan proposes a detailed advertising and a media strategy. Targeting the people belonging to the “sandwich generation”, this plan suggests Pleasant Valley Manor advertise on local television, newspaper, and radio. The main message this plan intends to declare is that Pleasant Valley Manor is unlike every other nursing home. Pleasant Valley Manor prides itself......

...Jose Manuel Jr. Professor Kam ACCT 3200 February 25, 2013 Skyview Manor The analysis of this case study is based on three different scenarios: 1) Regular Season, 2) Off Season, and 3) Raised Rates. To begin our analysis, Skyview Manor’s Contribution Margin Income Statement must be calculated to look for the cost behaviors. A cost behavior relates to the fluctuation of an activity. Next, we need to calculate the fixed cost. Luckily, the fixed cost will be unchanged during each scenario unless there is an added fixed value. The variable cost will be the challenge in each scenario because the variable cost changes in each activity. The variable cost per unit remains the same over activities that are relevant. Total variable cost will change directly proportional to each activity. After getting these calculations, we will be able to find each scenario’s Breakeven, Operating Income, and Degree of Leverage. Regular Season: To calculate for the regular season, we need to start with finding the total variable cost. In Exhibit 1, I have identified the variable cost to be in the cleaning supplies at $1,920; linen services at $13,920; and half of the miscellaneous expenses at $3657. Total variable cost will be $19,497. After getting the total variable cost, I can figure out the variable cost per unit. Total variable cost divided by the amount of days (120 days) times the price ($80) times average occupancy rate (80%). The variable cost per unit will be $2.54. Next, I will be......

The Independence of Manors and Missions

...The Independence of Manors and Missions Economic activities were a vital source of income and support for the Medieval manors and California missions. These economic activities consisted of growing and making products that would be used to keep the manors and missions operative. Even though both manors and missions grew and made products, some of these products had different purposes, while others are similar or identical. The typical Medieval manor was run by a lord who controlled and supervised his stewards. Each steward was required to assemble an annual statement of all the income earned. Farmlands around the manor were cultivated by oxen. On this farmland, grew fruit trees, nut trees, and grafted trees. Some other things that were produced from the land are turnips, honey, wax, soap, wine, mead, vinegar, beer, eggs, mustard, and dairy products such as cheese and butter. Two thirds of these foods were for their own consumption, and the remainder was to be documented. Stewards had to provide these aliments with immense care and cleanliness. Stewards were also in charge of making sure the manor was stocked and provided with household items such as bedding, furniture, and weapons. Stewards also had to consist of workers with a trade, usually, blacksmiths, cobblers, carpenters, sword-makers, and many others. Life on a Medieval manor was all about hard work and efficiency; laziness could presumptively affect income. Mission San Juan Capistrano was not run by a sole......

Bates Manor Furniture

...BatesManor Furniture, Inc. BatesManor Furniture, Inc. Case Analysis Khyatiben Patel Davenport University MKTG610 Dr. Loughran January 28, 2011 Case Recap In early 1900s, Charlton Bates’ great-grandfather opened BatesManor Furniture Inc.; the company manufactures medium-to-high-priced wood bedroom, living room and dining room furniture. BatesManor sells its furniture to independent furniture stores and high quality department stores nationwide; it’s very selective in choosing retail outlets. BatesManor had 10 full-time salespeople and 2 sales managers for fiscal year 20071. And sales personnel receive his salary and commission on the base of the sales. Bates believes that the company has been successful because they have employees who are committed to the company and they are not only taking the order but motivate the retail sales people and suggesting them about displaying the furniture in the store. The total promotional expenditures allocated by BatesManor for the operating year 2007 were $3,675,000, which did not include the salary of the vice president of sales. For the same year the company had net sales of $75 million. Problem Identification For year 2008, Mike Hervey, from BatesManor’s ad agency, proposed that they would increase the advertising expenditures by $225,000. This would increase new product exposure, brand awareness, and enhance the quality image of the manufacturer. However, the $225,000 increase in advertising is slightly out of......

Skyview Manor Case

...Question 1. Break-even point (per unit) = Total Fixed Costs / Average Revenue – Variable Costs per Unit Total Fixed Costs = Total Costs – Variable Costs Total Costs = $138,410 (Total Expenses, Exhibit 1) In this case, Variable Costs would include Cleaning Supplies, Linen Service, and one half of Miscellaneous expenses; therefore, Total Variable Costs = 1,920 + 13,920 + 3,657 = $19,497 Thus, Total Fixed Costs = $138,410 - $19,497 = $118,913 Average number of rooms occupied per season = 120 days x 80 rooms x 80% occupancy rate = 7,680 Variable Cost per Unit = $19,497/7,680 = $2.54 Average revenue (price) = $160,800/7,680 = $20.94 Thus, break-even point = $118,913/($20.94 - $2.54) = 6462 room nights total / 120 days = 54 rooms Question 2. Weekend nights for the season = 120 nights/7 nights in a week x 2 weekend nights = 34 weekend nights Contribution margin from question 1 or Average Revenue – Variable Cost per Unit = = $20.94 - $2.54 = $18.4 Loss: 80 – 72 = 8 rooms x 34 weekend nights x $18.4 = $5,005 Profit: 72 rooms x 34 weekend nights x $5 increase in rates = $12,240 Difference = $12,240 - $5,005 = $7,235 (number if positive; therefore, we have a profit and we should add it to profit before taxes) Therefore, revised profit before taxed would be equal to $22,390 + $7,235 = $29,625 Question 3. Contribution Margin = Average Revenue – Variable Cost per Unit According to the case, the plans were to reduce the rates for the off-season to $10 and $15 for......

Carson Manor Case Study

...1. What would be your analysis of the current situation? (4 pts) The current situation at Carson Manor is that they have continually had problems relating to budgeting and cost control, and the council which funds them now wants to get to the root of the problems. They’ve asked for, based on the recommendations of an internal report, an outside consulting company to offer proposals as to how they would methodically go about their research; the chosen company will be based on the cost of their study and the expected savings that come from their recommendations, as well as previous experiences and references. 2. What are the basic issues? (Please list at least 4 and explain each with one sentence) (6 pts) The key issue seems to be cost, first and foremost. Carson Manor’s costs were approximately 14% higher than state averages on a per-bed basis, something which clearly needs to be addressed. Another key issue is the bureaucracy within the structure of the command chain; there is a convoluted hierarchy and this could have a negative impact on the efficiency of operations for Carson Manor as decisions take a long time and there may be a lack of responsibility as there are many groups and boards which make decisions, rather than an individual manager which may be the case at a private institution. There hasn’t been a form of classification of care requirements for patients, therefore the facility isn’t being as efficient as it could and in fact the report seems to......
