Stacy Lynn, Inc. (SLI) is a manufacturer of rice cookers. The rice cookers sell for 
$45 per unit; the sales were 3,600 units in the current year, 2009. SLI has 400 
units available for sale at the end of 2009 and is projecting sales of 4,400 units in 
2010. SLI is planning the same production level for 2010 as in 2009, 4,000 units. 
The variable manufacturing costs for SLI are $16 and the variable selling costs 
are only $.50 per unit. The fixed manufacturing costs are $100,000 per year and 
the fixed selling costs are only $500 per year. Assume that beginning inventory 
was -0- for 2009.
Stacy Ann Lynn, the great grand-daughter of the company’s founder is the 
current CEO/President of the company, which is still a family owned business. 
The previous several years have been especially difficult due to price-pressure 
from Chinese imports. At the moment, all that Stacy believes she can do is to try 
to keep the company running until the economy improves. But, the company 
needs an immediate infusion of cash. So, she has decided to ask her bank for a 
large line of credit to maintain operating viability for the foreseeable future.
