|Direct materials||$ 900|
|Selling expenses (50% variable)||300|
|Total per unit||$2,460|
*Note that per unit manufacturing overhead costs include $840,000 fixed costs

A company recently approached Baseball’s management about buying 200 units of product. Baseball currently sells its product to dealers for $2,600 per unit. Capacity is sufficient to produce the extra 200 units. No selling expenses would be incurred on the special order.
What is the minimum price Baseball should charge just to break even on the special order?
