Break-even analysis: Break-even point John sells a product for $10 and it cost $5 to produce (UVC) and has fixed cost (FC) of $25,000 per yearJohn sells a product for $10 and it cost $5 to produce (UVC) and has fixed cost (FC) of $25,000 per year How much will he need to sell to break-even?How much will he need to sell to break-even? How much will he need to sell to make $1000?How much will he need to sell to make $1000?

9
Algebraic approach: Basic equation Revenues – Variable cost – Fixed cost = OI (USP x Q) – (UVC x Q) – FC = OI $10Q - $5Q – $25,000 = $ 0.00 $10Q - $5Q – $25,000 = $ 0.00 $5Q = $25,000 $5Q = $25,000 Q = 5,000 Q = 5,000 What quantity demand will earn $1,000? $10Q - $5Q - $25,000 = $ 1,000 $5Q = $26,000 Q = 5,200 Q = 5,200

10
Algebraic approach: Contribution Margin equation (USP – UVC) x Q = FC + OI (USP – UVC) x Q = FC + OI Q= FC + OI Q= FC + OI UMC UMC Q= $25, Q= $25, $5 $5 Q= 5,000 Q= 5,000 What quantity needs sold to make $1,000? Q= $25,000 + $1,000 Q= $25,000 + $1,000 $5 $5 Q= 5,200 Q= 5,200

Break-even Analysis: Comparing different variables Company XYZ has to choose between two machines to purchase. The selling price is $10 per unit.Company XYZ has to choose between two machines to purchase. The selling price is $10 per unit. Machine A: annual cost of $3000 with per unit cost (VC) of $5.Machine A: annual cost of $3000 with per unit cost (VC) of $5. Machine B: annual cost of $8000 with per unit cost (VC) of $2.Machine B: annual cost of $8000 with per unit cost (VC) of $2.

Break-even analysis: Comparative analysis Part 1 Determine break-even point for Machine A and Machine B.Determine break-even point for Machine A and Machine B. Where: V = FCWhere: V = FC SP - VC SP - VC

16
Break-even analysis: Part 1, Cont. Machine A: v= $3,000 v= $3,000 $10 - $5 $10 - $5 = 600 units Machine B: v= $8,000 v= $8,000 $10 - $2 $10 - $2 = 1000 units = 1000 units

17
Part 1: Comparison Compare the two results to determine minimum quantity sold.Compare the two results to determine minimum quantity sold. Part 1 shows:Part 1 shows: –600 units are the minimum. –Demand of 600 you would choose Machine A.

18
Part 2: Comparison Finding point of indifference between Machine A and Machine B will give the quantity demand required to select Machine B over Machine A. Machine A = Machine B FC + VC= FC + VC FC + VC= FC + VC $3,000 + $5Q= $8,000 + $2Q $3Q= $5,000 $3Q= $5,000 Q= 1667 Q= 1667

19
Part 2: Comparison Cont. Knowing the point of indifference we will choose:Knowing the point of indifference we will choose: Machine A when quantity demanded is between 600 and 1667.Machine A when quantity demanded is between 600 and Machine B when quantity demanded exceeds 1667.Machine B when quantity demanded exceeds 1667.

Exercise 1: Company ABC sell widgets for $30 a unit.Company ABC sell widgets for $30 a unit. Their fixed cost is$100,000Their fixed cost is$100,000 Their variable cost is $10 per unit. Their variable cost is $10 per unit. What is the break-even point using the basic algebraic approach?What is the break-even point using the basic algebraic approach?

23
Exercise 1: Answer Revenues – Variable cost - Fixed cost = OI (USP x Q) – (UVC x Q) – FC = OI $30Q - $10Q – $100,00 = $ 0.00 $30Q - $10Q – $100,00 = $ 0.00 $20Q = $100,000 $20Q = $100,000 Q = 5,000 Q = 5,000

Exercise 2: Company DEF has a choice of two machines to purchase. They both make the same product which sells for $10.Company DEF has a choice of two machines to purchase. They both make the same product which sells for $10. Machine A has FC of $5,000 and a per unit cost of $5.Machine A has FC of $5,000 and a per unit cost of $5. Machine B has FC of $15,000 and a per unit cost of $1.Machine B has FC of $15,000 and a per unit cost of $1. Under what conditions would you select Machine A?Under what conditions would you select Machine A?

25
Exercise 2: Answer Step 1: Break-even analysis on both options. Machine A: v= $5,000 v= $5,000 $10 - $5 $10 - $5 = 1000 units Machine B: v= $15,000 v= $15,000 $10 - $1 $10 - $1 = 1667 units = 1667 units

26
Exercise 2: Answer Cont. Machine A = Machine B FC + VC= FC + VC FC + VC= FC + VC $5,000 + $5Q= $15,000 + $1Q $4Q= $10,000 $4Q= $10,000 Q= 2500 Q= 2500 Machine A should be purchased if expected demand is between 1000 and 2500 units per year.Machine A should be purchased if expected demand is between 1000 and 2500 units per year.
