Determining the Break-even Point Bright Day produces one product called Delatine. The  company uses a cost-plus-pricing strategy; it sets prices  at cost plus a markup of 50% of cost. Delatine cost $24  per bottle to manufacture, so a bottle sells for $36 ($24 +  [50%  × $24]). The contribution margin per bottle is: Sales revenue per bottle 36 $ Variable cost per bottle 24 Contribution margin per bottle 12 $ The company’s first concern is if can sell enough bottles  The company’s first concern is if can sell enough bottles  of Delatine to cover it fixed costs and make a profit! of Delatine to cover it fixed costs and make a profit!

Break-even Break-even volume in units volume in units = = Fixed costs Fixed costs Contribution margin per unit Contribution margin per unit = $60,000 $12 5,000 units 5,000 units
