© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Basics of Cost-Volume- Profit (CVP) Analysis Contribution Margin (CM) is the amount remaining from sales revenue after variable expenses have been deducted.

5
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Contribution Approach For each additional unit Wind sells, $200 more in contribution margin will help to cover fixed expenses and profit.

6
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Contribution Approach Each month Wind must generate at least $80,000 in total CM to break even.

7
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Contribution Approach If Wind sells 400 units in a month, it will be operating at the break-even point.

8
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Contribution Approach If Wind sells one more bike (401 bikes), net operating income will increase by $200.

14
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Contribution Margin Ratio At Wind, each $1.00 increase in sales revenue results in a total contribution margin increase of 40¢. If sales increase by $50,000, what will be the increase in total contribution margin?

15
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Contribution Margin Ratio A $50,000 increase in sales revenue results in a $20,000 increase in CM. ($50,000 × 40% = $20,000), and a $20,000 increase in income.

The company’s sales manager believes that an increase of $10,000 in the monthly advertising budget would increase bike sales to 540 units. Should we authorize the requested increase in the advertising budget?

23
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Break-Even Analysis Break-even analysis can be approached two ways: 1.Equation method. 2.Contribution margin method.

24
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Equation Method Profits = Sales – (Variable expenses + Fixed expenses) Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits OR At the break-even point profits equal zero.

25
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Break-Even Analysis Here is the information from Wind Bicycle Co.:

26
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Equation Method We calculate the break-even point as follows: Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits $500Q = $300Q + $80,000 + $0 Where: Q = Number of bikes sold $500 = Unit selling price $300 = Unit variable expense $80,000 = Total fixed expense

27
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Equation Method We calculate the break-even point as follows: Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits $500Q = $300Q + $80,000 + $0 $200Q = $80,000 Q = $80,000 ÷ $200 per bike Q = 400 bikes

28
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Equation Method We can also use the following equation to compute the break-even point in sales dollars. Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits X = 0.60X + $80,000 + $0 Where: X = Total sales dollars 0.60 = Variable expenses as a % of sales $80,000 = Total fixed expenses

29
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Equation Method X = 0.60X + $80,000 + $0 0.40X = $80,000 X = $80,000 ÷ 0.40 X = $200,000 We can also use the following equation to compute the break-even point in sales dollars. Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits

30
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Contribution Margin Method The contribution margin method is a variation of the equation method. Fixed expenses Unit contribution margin = Break-even point in units sold Fixed expenses CM ratio(%) = Break-even point in total sales dollars

31
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Contribution Margin Method Using the Wind Bicycle example, we get: $80,000=400 $200 Units = Break-even point in units sold $80,000=$200,000.40 = Break-even point in total sales dollars

36
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Target Profit Analysis Suppose Wind Co. wants to know how many bikes must be sold to earn a profit of $100,000. We can use our CVP formula to determine the sales volume needed to achieve a target net profit figure.

37
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The CVP Equation Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits $500Q = $300Q + $80,000 + $100,000 $200Q = $180,000 Q = 900 bikes

38
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Contribution Margin Approach We can determine the number of bikes that must be sold to earn a profit of $100,000 using the contribution margin approach. Fixed expenses + Target profit Unit contribution margin = Unit sales to attain the target profit $80,000 + $100,000 $200 per bike = 900 bikes

41
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Margin of Safety Excess of budgeted (or actual) sales over the break-even volume of sales. The amount by which sales can drop before losses begin to be incurred. Margin of safety = Total sales - Break-even sales Let’s calculate the margin of safety for Wind.

42
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Margin of Safety Wind has a break-even point of $200,000. If actual sales are $250,000, the margin of safety is $50,000 or 100 bikes.

43
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Margin of Safety The margin of safety can be expressed as 20% of sales. So sales can decrease by 20% and firm still breaks even. ($50,000 ÷ $250,000)

47
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Operating Leverage A measure of how sensitive net operating income is to percentage changes in sales. With high leverage, a small percentage increase in sales can produce a much larger percentage increase in net operating income. Contribution margin Net operating income Degree of operating leverage =

48
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Operating Leverage $100,000 $20,000 = 5

49
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Operating Leverage With a operating leverage of 5, if Wind increases its sales by 10%, net operating income would increase by 50%. Here’s the verification!

50
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Operating Leverage 10% increase in sales from $250,000 to $275,000... 10% increase in sales from $250,000 to $275,000...... results in a 50% increase in income from $20,000 to $30,000.... results in a 50% increase in income from $20,000 to $30,000.

56
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin The Concept of Sales Mix Sales mix is the relative proportions in which a company’s products are sold. Different products have different selling prices, cost structures, and contribution margins. Let’s assume Wind sells bikes and carts and see how we deal with break-even analysis.

57
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Multi-product break-even analysis Wind Bicycle Co. provides the following information: $265,000 $550,000 = 48.2% (rounded)

58
© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2003 McGraw-Hill/Irwin Impact of Change in Sales Mix See Sound Unlimited example on page 254 – 256 Sales mix is very often the reason for changes in profitability for one period to the next.
