Lisa company is the exclusive distributor for an automobile product.
The product sells for tk. 40 per unit and has CM ratio 30%. The
company's fixed expenses are Tk. 180000.00 per year.
Required:
i) What is the variable expenses per unit?
ii) Using the equation method :
a) What is the break-even point in units and sales taka?
b) What sales level in units and in sales taka is required to earn an
annual profit of taka 60,000.00?
c) Assume that by using a more efficient shipper, the company is
able to reduce its variable expenses by Tk. 4 per unit . What is the
company's new break-even point in units and sales Taka?
iii) Repeat (ii) using the unit contribution method

Answer i)
We know
CM ratio = Contribution /sales
CM ratio = (selling price - VC per unit)/ selling Price
0.30
= (40-VC)/40
12
= 40-VC
VC
= 40 - 12
28 Per unit

Answer (ii) Equation Method
1) BEP in Units and Taka
We have
P = 40, V = 28 and FC = 180000.00
40x = 28x + 180000.00
40x - 28x = 180000.00
12x
= 180000.00
x
= 15000.00 Units
So, Break even in unit = 15000 units
Break-even point in sales taka = 40X1500 = 6,00,000.00 taka
2) Targeted sales in unit and taka
If targeted Profit Tk. 60000.00
We have
40x = 28x + 180000+ 60000.00
40x-28x =240000.00
12x
= 240000.00
x
= 20000.00 units
So, Break-even in unit =20000.00 units
Break-even point in sales = 40X 20000.00
= 8,00,000.00 Taka

BEP in Units and Taka (If VC changes)
If VC reduces by Tk. 4
We have
P = 40 V = 28 - 4 = 24 and FC = 180000.00
40x
= 24x + 180000.00
40x-24x = 180000.00
16x
= 180000.00
x
= 11250.00 units
So, Break even in Units
= 11250 units
Break-even point in sales taka = 40 X 11250
= 450000.00 Tk
Answer (iii) Unit contribution Method
1) BEP in Units and taka
BEP Units
= Fixed costs/Contribution Margin per Unit
= Fixed costs/(Selling Price-VC per Unit)
= (180000 - (40 -28)
= 180000/12
= 15000 Units
BEP in Taka
= Fixed Costs/CM Ratio
=180000/0.30
= 600,000.00 Taka

2) Targeted Sales in Units and Taka
Targeted sales in units
=( Fixed cost + Targeted Profit)/contribution Margin per unit
=(fixed cost + Targeted profit)/Selling Price - VC per Unit)
= (180000.00 + 60000.00)/(40-28)
=240000/12
=20000.00 Units
Tageted sales in Taka
= (fixed Cost + Targeted profit)/CM Ratio
=(180000+ 60000)/0.30
= 8,00,000.00 Taka
3) BEP in Units and Taka (if VC charge)
= BEP in units
= Fixed cost/Contribution Margin per unit
= Fixed costs/(Selling price- VC per unit)
= 180000/{40- (28-4)}
=180000/16
= 11250.00 Units
New CM ratio
=(Selling Price - VC per Unit)/Selling Price
=(40-24)/40
= 0.40
=40%
BEP in Taka
= Fixed Costs/CM Ratio
= 180000.00/0.40 = 4,50,000.00 Taka

variable Cost are direct labor and materials cost. It is a simple tool defining the lowest quantity of sales which will include both variable and fixed costs. reflecting a loss on the product. 2. rent etc. 5 . Cost can be reasonably subdivided in to fixed and variable components  Fixed costs and variable cost can be easily identified in most cases.NOVEMBER 2011 1. It is also helpful in recognizing the relevance of fixed and variable cost. All cost volume Profit relationships are linear. DISCUSS THE USEFULNESS AND ASSUMPTIONS OF BREAK-EVEN ANALYSIS ? Answer : The break even point is helpful in making decisions in business. Assumption of Break-even analysis 1.  Semi variable expenses can be problematic. Moreover such analysis facilitates the managers with a quantity which can be used to evaluate the future demand. the manager can use this information for taking various decisions. but can nonetheless be separated into fixed and variable components for analysis purpose. salaries. The fixed cost is less with a more flexible personnel and equipment thereby resulting in a lower break-even point. If. in case the break even point lies above the estimated demand. Fixed costs are depreciation.
