1) It desires an ending minimum cash balance of $5,000 each month.

2) Sales forecasted at an average wholesale selling price of $8 per kite.

In January, Victoria Kite is beginning just-in-time (JIT) deliveries from suppliers, which means that purchases equal expected sales

4) Purchases during any given month are paid in full during the following month.

5) All sales are on credit, payable within 30 days, but experience has show that:

60% of current sales are collected in the current month,

30% in the next month, and

10% in the month thereafter. Bad debts are negligible.

Wages and salaries $15,000
