The annual report says that the contribution format income statement shown on page 33 is used for internal reporting purposes; Benetton has chosen to include it in the annual report. The contribution format income statement treats all cost of sales as variable costs. The selling, general and administrative expenses shown on the absorption income statement have been divided into variable and fixed components in the contribution format income statement. As Distribution and Transport expenses and the Sales Commissions have been reclassified as variable selling costs on the contribution format income statement. The sum of these two expenses according to the absorption income statement on page 50 is €103,561 and €114,309 in 2004 and 2003, respectively. If these numbers are rounded to the nearest thousand, they agree with the variable selling costs shown in the contribution format income statements on page 33. 2.
