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? a. 1.319 b. 0.758 c. 0.242 d. 4.139 Breakeven Point Break-Even Point is the level of sales at which profit = zero Once Break-even is been reached, net operating income increases by the amount of the unit CM (SP-VC) for each additional unit sold Break-even is a special case of target profit when target profit = 0 BreakEven Analysis Approaches Break-even analysis can be approached in two ways: 1. Equation method 2. Contribution margin method Equation Method Profits = (Sales Variable Costs) OR Sales = Variable Costs + Fixed Costs + Profits Fixed Costs At the break-even point profits equal zero Break-even Analysis Contribution Margin Method The contribution margin method has two key equations: Break-even point = in units sold Break-even point in total sales dollars = Fixed Costs CM per unit Fixed Costs CM ratio 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 break-even sales in units? a. 872 cups b. 3,611 cups c. 1,200 cups d. 1,150 cups 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 break-even sales in dollars? a. $1,300 b. $1,715 c. $1,788 d. $3,129 Target Profit Analysis Use CM formulas to determine the sales volume (units and $s) needed to achieve a target profit Target pt. in units sold = Fixed Costs + Target Profit Unit CM Target pt. in total sales = Fixed Costs + Target Profit CM Ratio 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 $2,500 per month? a. 3,363 cups b. 2,212 cups c. 1,150 cups d. 4,200 cups Margin of Safety Margin of Safety is the excess of existing sales dollars over the break-even point Margin of Safety ($) = Total Sales Break-even Sales Margin of Safety (units) = Unit Sales Break-even unit Sales Margin of Safety % = Margin of Safety in Dollars Total Sales in Dollars 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 Cost Structure High Fixed Costs and Low Variable Costs Higher CM Ratio Lower Margin of Safety Wider swings in net operating income as sales fluctuate Low Fixed Costs and High Variable Costs Lower CM Ratio Higher Margin of Safety Greater profit stability Operating Leverage A measure of how sensitive net operating income is to % changes in sales Impacted by cost structure higher proportion of fixed costs higher operating leverage Degree of Contribution margin operating leverage = Net operating income 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 operating leverage? a. 2.21 b. 0.45 c. 0.34 d. 2.92 Quick Check At Coffee Klatch the average selling price of a cup of coffee is $1.49, the average variable expense per cup is $0.36, the average fixed expense per month is $1,300 and an average of 2,100 cups are sold each month. If sales increase by 20%, by how much should net operating income increase? a. 30.0% b. 20.0% c. 22.1% d. 44.2% Structuring Sales Commissions and Sales Mix Commissions based on sales $s may not maximize profits Solution: Pay commissions based on CM Sales Mix - relative proportion a company's products are sold across multiple products Different products have different selling prices, cost structures, and CMs With multiple products, break-even point changes as sales mix changes Achieve a mix that yields the largest profits (subject to market preferences) Key Assumptions of CVP Analysis Selling price is constant. Costs are linear. In multiproduct companies, the sales mix is constant. In manufacturing companies, inventories do not change (units produced = units sold).
