Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis

Presented by: Shaheen Shad Roll#: AM552069

Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis
CVP analysis shows the relationship between costs (both variable and fixed), volume (the number of units produced and sold), and profit or loss.

CVP is a useful management tool


it allows managers to understand and predict how changes in sales prices, sales volumes, and expenses will affect an organization’s profitability.

Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis
CVP analysis is an examination of the relationships of prices, costs, volume, and mix of products. It involves the separation of costs into their variable and fixed categories at the outset of the analysis.

Assumptions of CVP
 Revenues and costs are linear throughout the relevant range.  Costs can be identified as either fixed or variable.  Changes in activity levels are the only factors affecting

 The number of units produced and sold is the same.  In companies with more than one product, the sales mix is constant.

• If worker productivity changes as activity levels change. then variable costs per unit are not constant. • Linear total costs means total fixed costs are constant and variable costs per unit are constant. then variable costs per unit are not constant. . • If volume discounts are received from suppliers.Assumptions in CVP Analysis CVP analysis assumes that costs and revenues are linear within a relevant range of activity. • Offering volume discounts to customers violates this assumption. • Linear total revenues means that selling prices per unit are constant and the sales mix does not change.

can be used to estimate nonlinear cost and revenue functions.Assumptions in CVP Analysis • These assumptions may induce a small relevant range. . regression analysis. along with nonlinear transformations of the data. • Nonlinear analysis techniques are available. • For example. • Linear CVP analysis may be inappropriate if the linearity assumptions hold only over small ranges of activity. • Results of CVP calculations must be checked to see if they fall within the relevant range.

the company will determine how it will affect cost . CVP analysis . selling price and the output . For example if a company sell 2000 and wish to expand into foreign market .helps firms to know how total revenue and total cost can affect output level . How many new products that will be produced to breakeven It helps companies to better understand manufacturing cost .Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis The CVP helps companies to determine the following .

. both in units and in sales dollars: • The volume required to achieve target profit levels • The volume required to break even • The effects of discretionary expenditures •The selling price or costs required to achieve target volume levels • CVP analysis helps analyze the sensitivity of profits to changes in selling prices.How is CVP is Used CVP analysis can determine. costs. volume and sales mix.

or services we offer operating leverage. which compares the profitability of different products. which tells us the sales volume our need to break even. which magnifies our profits as sales increase. under different price or cost scenarios contribution margin analysis. . lines. which examines the degree to which our business uses fixed costs. but also magnifies our losses as sales drop.Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis There are three main tools offered by CVP analysis: breakeven analysis.

Variable cost CM may be shown as a per unit amount or a total amount at a specific level of sales. The contribution margin may be expressed as a per unit amount or as a total amount. The contribution margin is the amount available to cover fixed costs (below the break even point) and the amount to add to profit (above the break even point). CM = Selling price .Contribution Margins contribution margin is simply the percentage of each sales dollar that remains after the variable costs are subtracted. .

•The contribution margin ratio is usually expressed as a percentage. CM Ratio= Contribution Margin Sales .Contribution Margin Ratio •CMR = Contribution margin / selling price •The contribution margin ratio is the percent of each sales dollar that is available to cover fixed costs (below the break even point) and the amount to add to profit (above the break even point).

What is the break-even point? Revenues = Costs Break-even .

Demand is usually tougher to estimate. • Breakeven gives you a way to attack uncertainty. you can then fairly simply find the demand you must have to make the project a reasonable undertaking. costs. there are always variables to be considered: demand. By deciding that profit must at least be zero. only two missing variables remain profit (or cash flow) and demand. and miscellaneous factors. . price. In deciding whether to go ahead or to skip it. (the break even point). Profit comes after the breakeven point. • When most expenses can be determined. • A break even analysis is a management control tool that approximates how much you must sell in order to cover your costs with NO profit and NO loss.Uses of Break Even Analysis • It serves as a substitute for estimating an unknown factor in making project decisions. to get onto the target if not the bull's-eye.

• It's a cheap screening device. .• It enables you to determine with great accuracy whether or not your idea is a profitable one. Costs obviously affect price and marketing feasibility. Each design has implications for cost. Discounted cash flow techniques require large amounts of expensive-to-get data. Break even analysis can tell you whether or not it's worthwhile to do more intensive (costly) analysis. Best of all. It helps the management that at current costs of products how many numbers of units must be sold to at least recover the cost of producing the product. • Breakeven analysis allows the firm to determine at what level of operations it will break even (earn zero profit) and to explore the relationship between volume. • It provides a handle for designing product specifications. you can use this tool to evaluate every product or service you offer. Breakeven permits comparison of possible designs before the specifications are frozen. and profits. costs.

(i. it assumes that the relative proportions of each product sold and produced are constant (i. • It assumes that fixed costs (FC) are constant.e. as it tells you nothing about what sales are actually likely to be for the product at these various prices. this is true in the short run.The following are the limitations of a Break-even analysis • Break-even analysis is only a supply side (i. Although.e. • It assumes average variable costs are constant per unit of output. there is no change in the quantity of goods held in inventory at the beginning of the period and the quantity of goods held in inventory at the end of the period). linearity) • It assumes that the quantity of goods produced is equal to the quantity of goods sold (i.

• Breakeven Sales Volume = Fixed Costs divided by Contribution Margin Ratio. • Sales Price per Unit — Variable Costs per Unit = Contribution Margin per Unit.Breakeven Analysis • A tool for management decision making • breakeven point can be determined by using the following formulas: • Contribution Margin per Unit divided by Sales Price per Unit = Contribution Margin Ratio. .

. • Therefore. . However. it seems the current plan is preferable to the proposed plan. .Uncertainties in Ali’s Decision • Hopefully Ali is currently selling more than 1500 briefcases. because profits are negative under BOTH plans at this point. • The total costs of the current plan are less than the those of the proposed plan at sales levels past 1500 briefcases. .

this may not be true because the level of future sales is always uncertain. . • Salespersons may have an incentive to sell more units under the proposed plan. . • The plans may create different estimates of the likelihood of various sales levels. . • The lower fixed costs of the proposed plan may be safer. • What if the briefcases were a new product line? • Estimates of sales levels may be highly uncertain.Uncertainties in Ali’s Decision .

CVP Analysis for Multiple Products When a company sells more than one product the CVP calculations must be adjusted for the sales mix. • of total revenues when performing CVP calculations in sales $. . The sales mix should be stated as a proportion • of total units sold when performing CVP calculations for in units.

Recall that P = $200. .000 margin of safety percentage = 2.000 units – 3.000 The margin of safety tells Ali how far sales can decrease before profits go to zero.000 units = 2. the BEP in units = 3.000 units $200 x 5. V = $80.$600.000 = $400. and the BEP in sales $ = $600.

• A high degree of operating leverage indicates a high proportion of fixed costs. • but enjoy profits that rise more quickly when sales increase.Degree of Operating Leverage • The degree of operating leverage measures the extent to which the cost function is comprised of fixed costs. . • Businesses operating at a high degree of operating leverage • face higher risk of loss when sales decrease.

Degree of Operating Leverage The degree of operating leverage can be computed 3 ways. Contribution margin Profit degree of operating leverage 1 Margin of safety percentage Unit Contribution Margin = Sales Price .Variable Costs (Contribution /sales)*100 = this gives us profit volume ratio. = Fixed costs +1 Profit .
