Quick Check 

Coffee Klatch is an espresso stand in a downtown office building. The average selling price of a cup of coffee is \$1.49 and the average variable expense per cup is \$0.36. The average fixed expense per month is \$1,300. 2,100 cups are sold each month on average. What is the CM Ratio for Coffee Klatch?

Changes in Fixed Costs and Sales Volume

Wind is currently selling 500 bikes per month. 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?

\$80,000 + \$10,000 advertising = \$90,000

Changes in Fixed Costs and Sales Volume

Sales increased by \$20,000, but net operating income decreased by \$2,000.

Break-Even Analysis

Break-even analysis can be approached in three ways:

• Graphical analysis.
• Equation method.
• Contribution margin method.
Equation Method

Profits = Sales – (Variable expenses + Fixed expenses)

OR

Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits

At the break-even point

profits equal zero.

Break-Even Analysis

Here is the information from Racing Bicycle Co.:

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

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

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

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

0.40X = \$80,000

X = \$80,000 ÷ 0.40

X = \$200,000

Target Profit Analysis

Suppose Racing Bicycle 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.

The CVP Equation

Sales = Variable expenses + Fixed expenses + Profits

\$500Q = \$300Q + \$80,000 +\$100,000

\$200Q = \$180,000

Q =900 bikes

Unit sales to attain

the target profit

Fixed expenses + Target profit

Unit contribution margin

=

\$80,000 + \$100,000

\$200 per bike

= 900 bikes

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.

Quick Check 

Coffee Klatch is an espresso stand in a downtown office building. The average selling price of a cup of coffee is \$1.49 and the average variable expense per cup is \$0.36. The average fixed expense per month is \$1,300. How many cups of coffee would have to be sold to attain target profits of \$2,500 per month?

a. 3,363 cups

b. 2,212 cups

c. 1,150 cups

d. 4,200 cups

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

The Margin of Safety

Racing Bicycle has a break-even point of \$200,000. If actual sales are \$250,000, the margin of safety is \$50,000 or 100 bikes.

The Margin of Safety

The margin of safety can be expressed as 20%of sales.(\$50,000 ÷ \$250,000)

Quick Check 

Coffee Klatch is an espresso stand in a downtown office building. The average selling price of a cup of coffee is \$1.49 and the average variable expense per cup is \$0.36. The average fixed expense per month is \$1,300. 2,100 cups are sold each month on average. What is the margin of safety?

a. 3,250 cups

b. 950 cups

c. 1,150 cups

d. 2,100 cups

Example – SAA
• School of Accounting & Auditing launches monthly tax accounting courses (10 sessions, 2 hours each). There are three alternatives for tuition fees:

tuition fee No. of learners

VND 600,000 25

500,000 32

400,000 42

• Each course incurs:
• Instructor expense: VND500,000/session;
• Classroom rent expense: VND100,000/session;
• Learning materials & certification preparation: VND100,000/learner
• How many leaners should each course have to breakeven?
• What alternative the School should choose?

Cost structure

Cost structure refers to the types and relative proportions of variable and fixed costs that a business incurs.

Which cost structure is better? More fixed or more variable?

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.

Operating leverage

• Ford: DOL = 500/200 = 2,5
• Vinaxuki: DOL = 400/200 =2,0

Operating levegare

∆%Net operating income = DOL x ∆% Sales

• Ford
• Increase in Net operating income (%) = 2,5 x 20% = 50%
• Increase in Net operating income (\$) = 50% x 200 = 100
• Vinaxuki
• Increase in Net operating income (%)= 2,0 x 20% = 40%
• Increase in Net operating income (\$) = 40% x 200 = 80

The Concept of Sales Mix
• Sales mix is the relative proportions in which a company’s products are sold.
• In units
• In dollars
• Average contribution margin per unit =

∑ UCMi X unit sales mixi

• Average contribution margin rate =

∑ CM ratei X \$ sales mixi

30% 7up

UCM: VND600 per litre

70% Pepsi

UCM: VND500 per litre

Average contribution margin per unit

500 x 70% + 600 x 30% = 530

6000x 30% = 1800 litres

6000 x 70% = 4200 litres

Breakeven point

3.180.000/530 = 6000 litres

Example 2

Nhu Ngoc is a Mooncake producer. The information for the performance in Jan. and Feb. 2014 as below. Calculate net operating income for each month and explain for the difference.

Key Assumptions of CVP Analysis
• Selling price is constant.
• Costs are linear and can be accurately divided into variable (constant per unit) and fixed (constant in total) elements.
• In multiproduct companies, the sales mix is constant.
• In manufacturing companies, inventories do not change (units produced = units sold).
