Presentation Transcript
1. Case 5-7: Buckeye National Bank Group II Aftab Usmani Alexander Derevin Carla Daniels Shantanu Kumar Singh

2. Single indirect cost allocation rate: old way \$ in 1000s • Indirect costs: \$2,850 • Total Checks value: \$95,000 • Cost rate allocation = 2,850 / 95,000 = \$0.03 per dollar paid Based on \$ value of checks paid

3. Old indirect cost allocations:based on \$ checks paid Allocations driven by % of total value of checks written

4. Indirect cost allocation: old system • Assigns costs based on value of checks processed • Underlying rational: indirect costs are related to \$ value of checks written • Assumes consistent averages of business and retail check values • Value of checks must be consistent with number of checks written to hold true

5. Indirect cost per account: old system

6. Profit Margin per account: old system

7. Business Strategy based on old system • Increase retail accounts • Incentives to managers • Ignore business accounts

8. Signs old system is broken • Revenue increasing at slower rate than expenses • Profits declining while retail accounts increasing • Allocation distorts actual costs • Business customers likely to have more high value checks than retail customers • Retail customers could have larger number of smaller- valued checks • Teller and call center costs not related to check values

9. ABC method: activity cost allocations

10. ABC: Indirect cost allocation

11. ABC: Indirect cost proportion

12. ABC: Indirect Cost per account

13. Old way vs. ABC indirect cost allocation

14. Old way vs ABC cost allocation • Old way • overestimated indirect costs for business account • underestimated indirect costs for retail accounts • distorted by value and number of checks • ABC method • indirect costs based on activities that support each account type

15. ABC: Profit Margin per Customer

16. ABC: Business Strategy • Old way: • Led to strategy of increasing retail business • Couldn’t tell retail accounts create loss • Incentives for increasing retail accounts decreasing profits, leading toward losses • ABC: • Can now see that retail accounts losing money • Offer incentives to increase business accounts, decrease retail business • Reduce costs for retail accounts • Focus on reducing service calls • Implement ways to reduce visits to tellers

17. Indications ABC would be beneficial • Profits declining while seemingly profitable accounts increasing • Revenue increasing at slower rate than non-interest expenses • Operational factors • New call center has been added • Indirect costs associated with different services unknown

18. Importance of ABC for CEO or bank branch manager • Understand what is driving costs • Better understand contribution margins • Better profitability measures • Better decision and control • Better information for capacity planning • hiring part-time tellers at peak times
