If division B buys the adaptors externally, then the additional cost to the group is 13 – 7 = 6. So in order to optimise group profits, division B should first buy the adaptors internally. The maximum annual market demand for division A adaptors is 200000 units. Therefore, the internal sales to division B is 350000 less 200000 which is equal to 150000 adaptors. For the purpose of optimisation of group profits, division B should continue to buy 150000 adaptors from division A. The rest (180000-150000) 30000 adaptors should be bought externally. The sellling price per adaptor to external customers is 15 which is higher than the selling price per adaptor to division B of 13. Alternatively, the minimum transfer price per adaptor is 7 + (15-7) which is 15. The selling price per adaptor to division B is 13 which is lower than the minimum transfer price. So, in order to optimise group profits, division A should first sell adaptors externally and meet the external market demand of 200000 units. It should then sell the remaining 150000 adaptors to division B.
