This implies that the price of the product or service will not change as sales volume varies within the relevant range. o The behavior of total expenses is linear over the relevant range. This implies the following more specific assumptions:  Expenses can be categorized as fixed, variable, or semi-variable. Total fixed expenses remain constant as activity changes, and the unit variable expenses remains unchanged as activity varies.  The efficiency and productivity of the production process and workers remain constant. o In multiproduct organizations, the sales mix remains constant over the relevant range. o In manufacturing firms, the inventory levels at the beginning and end of the period are the same. This implies that the number of units produced during the period equals the number of units sold. Break Even Point – the level of activity where total revenues equal total expenses (variable and fixed). Total Contribution Margin  The amount of revenue available to cover fixed costs.  Total Sales Revenue – Total Variable Expense = Total Contribution Margin Break Even Point in Units = Fixed Expenses / Contribution Margin per Unit (Sales Price – VC per Unit) Break Even Point in Dollars = Fixed Expenses / Contribution Margin Ratio Contribution Margin Ratio = Contribution Margin per Unit / Sales Price per Unit To find Target Profit add Target Profit to Fixed Expenses in Numerator Safety Margin = Budget Sales Revenue – Break-even Sales Revenue Lecture 14: February 25, 2016 CVP Analysis with Multiple Products  For a company with more than one product. o Sales Mix – the relative combo (proportion) that a company’s products are sold.  Different products have different selling prices, cost structures, and contribution margins. Weighted-Average Unit Cost Margin  The sales mix is used in this process. o The average of the several products unit contribution margins, weighted by the relative sales proportion of each product. Contribution Margin Income Statement  The contribution format highlights the distinction between variable and fixed expenses.
