4 Part 1 The five profit parameters Learning objectives: 1. There are only five profit parameters. 2. Difference variable and fixed costs. 3. Difference bookkeeping and cost accounting.
5 How to calculate profit ? 1.P = price 2.q = quantity sold 3.VC = variable cost (raw materials, processing, packaging) 4.FC = fixed cost(depreciation, interests, overhead) 5.Tax= taxes, duties(creative bookkeeping, connections, …) PROFIT / LOSS REVENUES - COSTS - Tax (5) q (2) P (1) VC (3) FC (4) x+ REVENUES UP COSTS DOWN
6 Profit parameters There are ONLY FIVE parameters PPrice (per unit) VCVariable cost (per unit) qQuantity (in units per period) FCFixed cost (per period) TTax % of profit (per period) Note: q, FC, T must always refer to the same period. But four can be influenced by the entrepreneur!
7 Profit parameter 1: Price Price has many components: Price
8 Profit parameter 2: VC Variable cost has four main components: VC VC1 Cost of raw materials and ingredients VC2 Cost of processing inputs into outputs VC3 Cost of packaging VC4 Cost of delivery transport, sales commission, import duties Where to obtain correct data ?
Internal & external VC Internal are all VCs inside the factory: VC1 Cost of Ingredients VC 2 Cost of processing VC3 Cost of packaging VC = VC1 + VC2 + VC3 External are VCs outside the factory: VC4 Cost of delivery P(C&F) – VC4 = P(EXW) VC4 = P(C&F) – P(EXW) 9
10 Profit parameter 3: quantity q=actual quantity sold per period q CAP =quantity at full capacity utilization quantity/hour * hours/day * days/year (harvest season) 3 ton/hour * 22 hours/day * 90 days/yr = 5940 ton/year q BE =break-even quantity, where profit = 0
11 Profit parameter 4: FC Fixed cost has three main components: FC FC1 Depreciation of fixed assets FC2 Interest paid on capital FC3 Overhead salaries, repairs, transport, marketing, etc Where to obtain correct data ?
12 Recognize costs - exercise 1. Ingredients 2. Labels 3. Bank charges 4. Machine repair 5. Raw material transport 6. Product transport 7. Depreciation 8. Social tax 9. Diesel for the boiler 10. Electricity in the factory 11. Electricity in the office 12. Casual labor 13. Management salary 14. Detergents and gloves 15. Interest on loans 16. Carton boxes Are the following Variable or Fixed costs?
Five profit parameters + three analysis parameters P = price q = quantity VC = variable cost FC = fixed cost T = taxes Margin, Contribution, Cost price 14
15 Margin and contribution What is MARGIN? Margin = earnings per unit Margin = price – variable cost per unit Margin = P – VC What is CONTRIBUTION? Contribution = earnings per period Contribution = margin per unit * units sold Contribution = (P – VC) * q
17 Profit formula 1 Bookkeepers method Profit = Revenues – Total costs Formula: Profit = P*q – (VC*q + FC) Total revenue, minus total cost is profit
18 Profit formula 2 Traders method Profit = Profit per unit * Units sold Formula: Profit = (P – VC – FC/q) * q Price less total cost per unit, multiplied by the number of units is the profit
19 Profit formula 3 Cigar Box method Profit = Contribution – Fixed costs Formula: Profit = (P – VC) * q – FC Price less variable cost is the margin per unit, multiplied by the number of units is the contribution, minus fixed cost is profit
Cost price formula Is cost price calculated per period or per unit? Answer: per unit! $0.40 per kg; $30 per carton; $23,000 per car What is the formula? Answer: TC/q = VC + FC/q In words: Cost price per unit = variable cost + fixed cost per unit 21
Cost price calculation Formula: TC/q = VC + FC/q P = 10, q = 10, VC = 5, FC = 30 Cost price per unit = /10 = = 8 P = 10, q = 15, VC = 5, FC = 30 Cost price per unit = /15 = = 7 Is the cost price a constant figure? Answer: no, it fluctuates with q, the quantity sold! Variable cost is fixed & Fixed cost is variable…. Therefore: the Traders method is not used! 22
23 Comparing the other methods Bookkeeping: P*q – (VC*q + FC) – T = PAT Sales per period Costs per period Taxes per period Cigar Box: (P–VC) * q – FC – T = PAT Margin per unit units per period per period Contribution per period End result: is the same!
24 Why Cigar Box method? Bookkeeping: Cigar Box: Profit yr 2: up 25% Profit yr 2: up 125%!
25 Profit parameters (repetition) There are ONLY FIVE parameters PPrice (per unit) VCVariable cost (per unit) qQuantity (in units per period) FCFixed cost (per period) TaxTax % of profit (per period) Not more!
Analysis parameters per unit or per period? Margin is….? Margin per unit Margin= price – VC Contribution is….? Contribution per period Contribution= margin * q Cost price is ….? Cost price per unit Variable cost + Fixed cost per unit = VC + FC/q 26 Thats all
27 Recognize costs - exercise 1. Apples 2. Stickers 3. Bank commission 4. Repair on evaporator 5. Sugar transport 6. Transport crates of beer 7. Depreciation 8. Pension payment 9. Furnace oil for the boiler 10. Electricity in the factory 11. Import duties 12. Harvest labor 13. Management perks 14. Detergents and gloves 15. Sales commission 16. Beer creates Which cost types are these?
28 Part 3 Using the Cigar Box Learning objectives: 1. Filling the Cigar Box; 2. Analyze the results! 3. Importance of capacity utilization.
29 P VC FC q contribution profit P-VC profit per unit Break-even Capacity Utilization
30 Sales price P Sales Price = Amount per unit, INCO-term City. Tomato paste price = USD 1000 per ton, DDP Moscow. DDP = delivered, duties paid. Delivered to Moscow in this case. The import duties in Russia are 10% or USD 100 per ton. VC4 = transport and commission = USD 144 per ton. Hence the Price EXW = = USD 756 per ton.
31 Variable cost VC Three types of variable cost: VC1, cost of everything which is consumed: raw material and ingredients. VC2, cost of processing raw material into the finished product: energy, steam, casual labor, detergents, diesel, gas. VC3, cost of primary (jar, cap, label) and secondary (carton box, shrink wrap, pallet) packing material.
32 Raw material & ingredients VC1 The price of the raw material, delivered to the factory = 71/ton. The processing ratio is the quantity of raw material needed for one unit of finished good. Here: 6 kg tomato for 1 kg of paste. Raw material cost = 71 * 6 = 429 The higher the losses, the higher the processing ratio, the more costly the finished good. Calculate the cost of all other ingredients in the recipe: 12 VC1 = = 441.
33 Processing cost VC2 Calculating VC2 is not easy. Processing cost are calculated per hour. And divided by the production volume in units per hour. To arrive at the processing cost per unit. One must measure the use of steam, electricity, casual labor. Not just guess it! And measure the output per hour. Not just guess it! Get the correct data! After that, calculation is easy: 124 / 2 = 62
34 Packing cost VC3 Packing cost are calculated per sales unit: 1 aseptic bag in 1 steel drum = = 21.8; Other examples of sales units: 24 bottles per carton = 24*(bottle + cap + label) + 1 box + 1 sticker; 10 sachets per bag = 10*sachet + 1 bag + 1 adhesive sticker Calculate the number of sales units per unit of calculation: unit of calculation is ton = 1000 kg 4.4 drums of 225 kg per ton: 1000 / 225 = 4.4 add the packing losses, say 2.2%, multiply 4.4 by 102.2% = 4.5 VC3 = cost of packing * number of packs per unit = 21.8 * 4.5 = 99
35 Total variable cost VC VC = VC1 + VC2 + VC3 Finished good losses Warehouse losses, theft, pilferage, etc…. If there are 2% losses, enter 2% in FG losses % box. VC = (VC1 + VC2 + VC3) * (1+ FG losses %) VC = ( ) * 1.02 = 614
36 Margin P–VC Margin, or gross margin, is expressed per unit: Margin = P(EXW) – VC = 756 – 614 = 142
37 Margin % (P–VC) / P * 100% Margin % = Margin / P(EXW) * 100% = 142 / 756 = 19% Margin % helps us to evaluate, if a margin is risky or not. Usual risk levels in food processing and manufacturing are:
38 Contribution (P–VC) * q The volume, or quantity sold is expressed in units per period. In this example, 3600 ton of tomato based are sold. Contribution is expressed per period: Contribution = Margin per unit * quantity per period = = 142 * 3600 = 511,623
39 Fixed costs Three types of fixed cost: FC1, cost of investments: depreciation. FC2, cost of debts: interest. FC3, cost of all overheads. Salaries, social taxes, pensions, etc.. Repairs, maintenance Office & transport cost Marketing Etc…..
40 Depreciation FC1 Use a realistic value for the productive assets. For a tomato processing company this is about 1.8 million. Use a realistic depreciation rate. Here: the replacement period of the factory is 12.8 years. The depreciation = 1 / 12.8 * 100% = 7.8% FC1 = Asset value * depreciation % = 1,800,000 * 7.8% = 140,000
41 Interest FC2 Use the real amount of the debts, with a minimum of 40% of the asset value. For this company this is about 720,000 Use a realistic interest rate. Here: 18.7% per year. FC2 = Debt value * interest rate = 720,000 * 18.7% = 134,400
42 Overhead FC3 Enter the number of full-time equivalent staff (FTE) 10 workers, working 6 months per year = 10 * 6/12 = 5 FTE 10 workers, working 4 months per year = 10 * 4/12 = Calculate their salaries, incl. all taxes and emoluments: 50,000 Calculate one lump sum amount for all other overheads: 20,000 FC3 = salaries + all other overhead = 50, ,000 = 70, FTE
43 Total fixed costs FC FC = FC1 + FC2 + FC3 FC = 140, , ,000 = 344,400 The contribution of tomato paste must exceed these costs. In case more than 1 product is produced, FC must be shared. Calculate FC % attributed to product and enter in the box: 100% FC (attributed to product) = FC * FC % attributed to product
44 Profit Two methods Cost accounting method: Profit = Contribution – Fixed costs Bookkeeping method: Profit = Total revenues – Total costs Result is the same!
45 Summary Cost price Cost price = total cost per unit
46 Break-even Break-even point is where the profit is zero. Revenues – Cost = 0 or Contribution – Fixed cost = 0 Why calculating the break-even quantity? When Price, VC and FC are known and q is unknown How many drums can be sold per year? BE volume (sales) = minimum volume needed to sell to make a profit. BE volume (raw material) = minimum volume needed to process. How much raw material do we need to buy? = 6 * 2423 = 14,538 tons
47 Capacity q = quantity sold = 3,600 tons of paste per year q CAP = quantity produced at full capacity utilization quantity/hour * hours/day * days/year (harvest season) 2 ton/hour * 22 hours/day * 110 days/yr = 4,840 ton/year utilization = q / q CAP * 100% = 3,600 / 4,840 = 74.4%
48 Capacity utilization How does Capacity utilization affect Cost Price? Higher utilization % higher q lower FC/q VC does not change, hence lower cost price TC: TC1 = VC + FC/q1= / 100 =48 TC2 = VC + FC/q2= / 120 =44 With same P, lower TC higher profit per unit Profit 1 = Price – TC1 = 60 – 48 = 12 Profit 2 = Price – TC2 = 60 – 44 = 16
49 Capacity utilization 2 How does Capacity utilization affect the Profit ? higher capacity utilization more units are sold and higher profit per unit. Profit = units sold * profit per unit Profit 1 = 100*12=1200 Profit 2 = 120*16=1920 Increase Increase %20%33% 60% Conclusion: with 20% increase in volume, the profit increases by 60%!!
