The effect of volume of activity on costs Variable costs Increase or decrease in total in direct proportion to changes in the volume of activity Fixed costs Do not change over wide ranges of volume Mixed costs Have both variable and fixed components 2

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Total variable costs change in direct proportion to changes in the volume of activity If activity increases, so does the cost Unit variable cost remains constant Volume can be measured in many different ways: Number of units sold Number of units produced Number of miles driven by a delivery vehicle Number of phone calls placed 3

Tend to remain the same in amount, regardless of variations in level of activity Examples: Straight-line depreciation Salaries Total fixed costs do not change, but the fixed cost per event depends on the number of events The more activity, the less the fixed cost per unit 5

Have both a fixed and variable component Example: Utilities that charge a set fee per month, plus a charge for usage Your cell phone provider 7

Method to separate mixed costs into variable and fixed components Identify the highest and lowest levels of activity over a period of time STEP 1: Calculate variable cost per unit STEP 2: Calculate total fixed cost STEP 3: Create and use equation to show the behavior of a mixed cost 9 Variable cost per unit = Change in total cost ÷ Change in activity volume Total fixed cost = Total mixed cost – Total variable cost Total mixed cost = (Variable cost per unit X number of units) + Total fixed costs

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Martin owns a machine shop. In reviewing his utility bill for the last 12 months, he found that his highest bill of $2,800 occurred in August when his machines worked 1,400 machine hours. His lowest utility bill of $2,600 occurred in December when his machines worked 900 machine hours. 1.Calculate (a) the variable rate per machine hour and (b) Martins total fixed utility cost. Variable cost per unit = Change in total cost ÷ Change in activity volume 15 a. Variable cost per unit = ($2,800 - $2,600) ÷ (1,400 – 900) Variable cost per unit = $200 ÷ 500 = 0.40 per machine hour b. Total fixed cost = Total mixed cost – Total variable cost Total fixed cost = $2,800 – (0.40 X 1,400) Total fixed cost = $2,800 - $560 Total fixed cost = $2,240

His lowest utility bill of $2,600 occurred in December when his machines worked 900 machine hours. 2. Show the equation for determining the total utility cost for Martins. $ 0.40 per machine hour + $2, If Martins anticipates using 1,200 machine hours in January, predict his total utility bill using the equation from Requirement 2. ($ 0.40 per machine hour x 1,200 machine hours) + $2,240 $480 +$2,240 = $2,720 16

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Expresses the relationships among costs, volume, and profit or loss Answers: How many products or services must the company sell to break even? What will profits be if sales double? How will changes in selling price, variable costs, or fixed costs affect profits? 17

18
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Assumptions: Managers can classify each cost as either variable or fixed Only factor that affects total costs is change in volume, which increases variable and mixed costs Fixed costs do not change 18

19
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Sales level at which operating income is zero: Total revenues equal total costs (expenses) Sales above breakeven result in a profit Sales below breakeven result in a loss 19

20
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Two methods to compute breakeven point: Income statement approach Sales revenue Total costs = Operating income Contribution margin approach Sales revenue – Variable costs = Contribution margin – Fixed costs = Operating income 20

21
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Unit sale price Unit variable cost Fixed costs Unit contribution margin $200 $80 $12,000 $120 ($200 - $80) 21

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Express income in equation form and then break it down into its components: 22

23
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Shortcut method The contribution margin is sales revenue minus variable costs (expenses) Called contribution margin because the excess of sales revenue over variable costs contributes to covering fixed costs 23

25
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Given fixed costs total $12,000. The contribution margin per event is $120 ($200 sale price – $80 variable cost) Check your answer 25

26
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Ratio of contribution margin to sales revenue Used to compute the breakeven point in terms of sales dollars Contribution margin is equal to: Sales price – variable cost Contribution margin divided by sales revenue yields a percentage Percentage of each dollar of sales revenue that contributes toward fixed costs and profit 26

27
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Formula: Example: Yields the same breakeven as the contribution margin approach earlier 27 Unit CM $120 Unit Sale Price$200

Story sells tickets at $50 per person as a one-day entrance fee. Variable costs are $10 per person, and fixed costs are $240,000 per month. 1. Compute the number of tickets Story must sell to break even. Perform a numerical proof to show that your answer is correct. 28 Units sold = ($240, ) ÷ ($50 - $10) Units sold = $240,000 ÷ $40 = 6,000 units to breakeven

Story sells tickets at $50 per person as a one-day entrance fee. Variable costs are $10 per person, and fixed costs are $240,000 per month. 1. Compute Story Parks contribution margin ratio. Carry your computation to two decimal places. 30 $50 - $10 = $40 $40 ÷ $50 = 0.80 or 80% 2. Use the contribution margin ratio CVP formula to determine the sales revenue Story Park needs to break even. $240,000 ÷ 0.80 = $300,000

31
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Use CVP analysis for profit planning, and graph the CVP relations

32
Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Managers more interested in: Sales level needed to earn a target profit Profits they can expect to earn How many products or service events must be sold to earn a specific operating profit Use either method (equation or CM) Set operating profit equal to desired profit 32

Graph provides a picture that shows how changes in the levels of sales will affect profits Four steps: 1.Choose a sales volume and plot the point for total sales revenue at that volume 2.Draw the fixed cost line 3.Draw the total cost line (total costs are the sum of variable costs plus fixed costs) 4.Identify the breakeven point and the areas of operating income and loss 34

Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Story Park competes with Splash World by providing a variety of rides. Story sells tickets at $50 per person as a one-day entrance fee. Variable costs are $10 per person, and fixed costs are $240,000 per month. 1. Suppose Story Park cuts its ticket price from $50 to $40 to increase the number of tickets sold. Compute the new breakeven point in tickets and in sales dollars. 44 Units sold = ($240, ) ÷ ($40 - $10) Units sold = $240,000 ÷ $30 = 8,000 units to breakeven $320,000 sales dollars to breakeven Old Breakeven 6,000 units, $300,000

Story sells tickets at $50 per person as a one-day entrance fee. Variable costs are $10 per person, and fixed costs are $240,000 per month. 2. Ignore the information in Requirement 1. Instead, assume that Story Park increases the variable cost from $10 to $20 per ticket. Compute the new breakeven point in tickets and in sales dollars. 45 Units sold = ($240, ) ÷ ($50 - $20) Units sold = $240,000 ÷ $30 = 8,000 units to breakeven = $400,000 in sales dollars

Story sells tickets at $50 per person as a one-day entrance fee. Variable costs are $10 per person, and fixed costs are $240,000 per month. 1. If Story Park expects to sell 6,200 tickets, compute the margin of safety in tickets and in sales dollars. 46 Expected sales - Breakeven sales = Margin of safety in units 6,200 – 6,000 = 200 in units Margin of safety in units x Sales price = Margin of safety in dollars 200 units x $50 = $10,000
