Question

Two companies, Company A and Company B, are deciding whether each should implement a new pricing strategy, which

may or may not result in a price war. If both companies reduce (discount) their current prices, each company will end up with $175K in revenues for the month. If neither company discounts its current prices, each company will end up with $400K in revenues for the month. If Company A discounts its prices and Company B does not, Company A will end up with $650K of revenues for the month and Company B will end up with $450K in revenues for the month. If Company B discounts its prices and Company A does not, Company B will end up with $325K in revenues for the month, and Company A will end up with $450K in revenues for the month.
