known garden implement manufacturer ‘Winner Mowers’. Mercury believe that with the rapid growth

in the Chinese middle class famous brands like the Australian ‘Winner’ lawn mower will have a large

market in China when marketed through Mercury’s extensive Chinese distribution channels.

As part of the due diligence around the purchase of ‘Winner Mowers’ you have been asked to prepare

an up to date Cost of Manufacturing Schedule and Income Statement. Mr Lorne Greene, the

management accountant at ‘Winner’, has provided you with the following data which relates to the

2016 financial year which has just completed. The firm manufactures the body and mechanics of the
