# BREAK EVEN ANALYSIS

A. BREAK-EVEN POINT
expenses.

the

point

where

sales

or

revenues

equal

## -no profit is made or loss incurred at the break-even point

B. B. BREAK-EVEN MARGIN -a ratio that shows the gross-margin factor for a
break-even condition.
-the formula is total expenses divided by net revenues
multiplied by 100% to get a percentage.
C. WAYS TO LOWER BREAK-EVEN
1. Lower direct costs, which will raise the gross margin
2. exercise cost controls on your fixed expense, and lower the necessary total
dollars
3. raise prices
D. KEY BREAK-EVEN FACTORS
a. fixed costs
range of sales

## - includes facilities costs, certain general and administrative costs, and

interest and depreciation expense
b. variable cost

## -include direct material and labor costs, the variable part of

manufacturing, overhead, and transportation and sales commission
expenses.
c. contribution margin

## -available to offset fixed expenses and produce an operating

E. CALCULATING THE BREAK-EVEN POINT

At break-even;
TOTAL INCOME = TOTAL COST
Let x = the number of units at break-even
X(selling price per unit)= Total Fixed cost+ (Variable Cost/ unit)(x)
To solve for profit/ loss:
TOTAL INCOME =Total Fixed Cost + Total Variable Cost + dividend(%share)(#of
shares) + Profit/Loss

Problems:
1. Steel drum manufacturers incur a yearly fixed operating cost of P200,000.
Each drum manufactured cost of P160 to produce and sells P200. What is the
manufacturers break-even sales volume in drums per year?
2. A local factory assembling calculators produces 400 units per month and sells
them at P 1,800 each. Dividends are 8% on the 8,000 shares with par value
of P250 each. the fixed operating cost per month is P25,000. other costs are

P1,000 per unit. determine the break-even point. if only 200 units were
produced per month, determine the profit or loss
ans: 32 units. b. P121, 667 per month
3. A factory engaged in the fabrication of an automobile part with a production
capacity of 700, units per year is operating only at 62% of capacity due to
unavailability of the necessary foreign currency to finance the importation of
their raw materials. The annual income is P430,000, annual fixed costs are
P190,000, and variable cost are P0.348 per unit.
a. What is the profit/loss ?
b. What is the break even point?
4. A plant produces 300 units of equipment a month of P3,600 each. A unit sells
for P4,800. The company has 10,000 shares of stock at P200 par value whose
annual divided is 20%. The fixed cost of production of P120,000 a month.
a. What is the break even point?
b. What is the profit/loss if production is 60% capacity
