### Breakeven Analysis

Quantitative Tool for Evaluating Alternatives

Breakeven Analysis
• Organizations face Variables Costs (VC).
• Variable Costs (VC) change with the volume of production, e.g. cost of materials or labor.
• Organizations face Fixed Costs (FC).
• Fixed Costs (FC) do not change with volume of production and would be incurred even if no products were manufactured or sold, e.g. Utilities, Advertising and Sales Expenses, Machinery.
• Price (P) per Unit is the revenue obtained per unit.
• Unit Contribution or Margin per Unit is the difference between price per unit and variable cost per unit, i.e.
• Unit Contribution = P per unit – VC per unit
• Breakeven volume is found by dividing the total fixed costs by the unit contribution
• Breakeven Volume (Units) = Total Fixed Costs
• Unit Contribution
Break Even Analysis
• Breakeven occurs when Total Costs = Total Revenues
• Total Costs = Fixed Costs + Variable Costs
• If TC are greater than TR than loss is incurred.
• If TR are greater than TC than profit is incurred.
• Typically TR are less than TC at beginning stages of production
• Raising prices will reduce BEP.
• Lowering prices will increase BEP.
