- 4. 2-4 Lessons Learned When all costs are variable, the potential for profits is limited, because costs keep growing with volume. When all costs are fixed, after the fixed costs are covered, every additional sales dollar contributes the whole dollar to gross profit. The profit potential is higher. McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 5. 2-5 Operating Leverage A measure of the extent to which fixed costs are being used in an organization to change profit. Operating leverage is greater in companies that have a high proportion of fixed costs in relation to variable costs. Small Large percentage percentage change in change in revenue profits McGraw-Hill/Irwin Fixed Costs The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 6. 2-6 Measuring Operating Leverage Using Contribution Margin Operating Contribution margin = Leverage Net income Show me an example. McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 7. 2-7 Measuring Operating Leverage Using Contribution Margin Operating $20,000 = = 4 Leverage $5,000 A 10% increase in sales will result in a 40% increase (10% × 4) in net income. McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 8. 2-8 Operating Leverage 10% Sales Increase 40% Profit Increase Verify: ($7,000 - $5,000) / $5,000 = 40 % McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008

- 10. 2-10 Effect of Cost Structure on Profit Stability If the number of units sold increases by 10% for all three companies, which company will enjoy the highest net income? Is it true that If the number of units sold decreases by 15% for all three companies, All Variable Company will have higher net income than All Fixed Company?

- 11. 2-11 Cost-Volume-Profit (CVP) Analysis CVP analysis summarizes the relationship between an organization’s volume of activity and its costs, revenue and profit within the relevant range. McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 12. 2-12 CVP Analysis When running any business – • The first concern is if it can sell enough to cover all its costs (Breakeven analysis). • The second concern is whether it can reach a desired profit (Target profit analysis). • The third concern is how to assess and select different strategies (CVP impact analysis) McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 13. 2-13 Determining the Break-even Point •The break-even point is the point where total revenue equals to total costs (both variable and fixed), and therefore the profit is zero. McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 14. 2-14 Dollars Cost-Volume-Profit Graph Break-even Point Revenue Total Cost Fixed Cost Units Sold McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 15. 2-15 The Equation Method We can use the profit equation to find out the BE point in units. At the break-even point: Total Sales – Total Costs = Zero Total Sales - Total Variable costs - Total Fixed Costs = Zero where: Total Sales = Selling price per unit * BE Units Total Variable Costs = Variable cost per unit * BE Units McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 16. 2-16 Reaching a Target Profit Level If we want to consider the desired profit, the profit equation would be: Total Sales – Total Costs = Desired Profit Total Sales - Total Variable Costs - Total Fixed costs = Desired profit McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 17. 2-17 Determining the Break-even Point Using a Formula By re-arranging the Profit Equation at break- even, we can derive a formula to quickly compute Break-even Point in Units. Break-even Fixed costs = volume in units (Unit Selling Price – Unit Variable Cost) Break-even volume in units = Fixed costs Contribution margin per unit McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 18. 2-18 Reaching a Target Profit Using the Formula The formula can be expanded to include a target profit analysis. Sales volume Fixed costs + Desired profit = in units (Unit Selling Price – Unit Variable Cost) Sales volume Fixed costs + Desired profit in units = Contribution margin per unit McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 19. 2-19 CVP Analysis What do you think “units” mean in giant retailers, such as Wal Mart? Can Wal Mart do a Break-even analysis? Can it figure out the level of Sales to reach its desired profit? The answers to both are YES! It uses Contribution Margin Ratio! McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 20. 2-20 Contribution Margin Ratio The contribution margin ratio (CM%) measures the percentage of sales that is contribution margin. For example, a 25% CM ratio means for every $100 of sales, $25 (25% of $100) is CM, and $75 (75% of $100) is variable cost. Contribution Margin (CM) Ratio = Total CM Total sales = Unit CM Unit selling price McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 21. 2-21 Contribution Margin Ratio By re-arranging the Profit Equation at break- even, we can derive a formula to quickly compute Break-even in Sales Dollars, using CM ratio. Break-even in Sales Dollars Fixed costs = CM ratio McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 22. 2-22 Contribution Margin Ratio The formula with CM ratio can be further expanded to include a target profit analysis. Sales Dollars to reach a desired profit Fixed costs + Desired profit = CM ratio McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 23. 2-23 Contribution Margin Ratio •Consider the following Income Statement: CM%=$60,000/$100,000=60% Sales $100,000 BE$ = TFC / CM% - Variable Costs $40,000 = $30,000 / 60% Contribution Margin $60,000 = $50,000 Sales for $60,000 profit - Fixed Costs $30,000 = ($30,000+$60,000)/60% Net Income $30,000 = $150,000 Total variable cost at BE = BE sales * (1 – CM%) = $50,000 * 40% What is the Break-even Sales? = $20,000 What is the Total Sales if the target profit is $60,000? What is the total Variable Cost at Break-even point? McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 24. 2-24 CVP Impact Analysis 1.To examine the profit impact of changes in fixed costs, variable costs, selling price, and the mix of products. 2.To find out the allowable selling price, fixed costs, or variable costs, given a target level of profit. 3.Examples: McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
- 25. 2-25 BE and Target Profit Analysis Equation Method: Total Sales - Total Variable costs - Total Fixed costs = Desired profit CM per unit Formula Method: Sales volume Fixed costs + Desired profit = in units Contribution margin per unit CM % Formula Method: Sales Fixed costs + Desired profit = Dollars Contribution margin % McGraw-Hill/Irwin The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2008
