# 15-2A. (Break-even point) Napa Valley Winery (NVW) is a boutique

15-2A. (Break-even point) Napa Valley Winery (NVW) is a boutique winery that produces a
high-quality, nonalcoholic red wine from organically grown cabernet sauvignon grapes. It sells
each bottle for \$30. NVW’s chief financial officer, XXXXX XXXXXg, has estimated variable costs to
be 70 percent of sales. If NVW’s fixed costs are \$360,000, how many bottles of its wine must
NVW sell to break even?

15-13A. (Break-even point and operating leverage) Allison Radios manufactures a complete line of radio and communication equipment for law enforcement agencies. The average selling price of its finished product is \$180 per unit. The variable cost for these same units is \$126. Allison Radios incurs fixed costs of \$540,000 per year.

a. What is the break-even point in units for the company?

b. What is the dollar sales volume the firm must achieve in order to reach the break-even
point?

c. What would be the firm’s profit or loss at the following units of production sold:
12,000 units? 15,000 units? 20,000 units?

d. Find the degree of operating leverage for the production and sales levels given in part (c).

30x = 360,000+0.7*30x

30x = 360,000+21x

9x = 360,000

X = 360,000/9 = 40,000

Hence, 40,000 bottles should be sold for break even.

12,000 units? 15,000 units? 20,000 units?

d. Find the degree of operating leverage for the production and sales levels given in part (c).

a)180x = 540000+126x

54x = 540000

X 540,000/54 =10,000 units

b)Sales volume = \$180*10,000=\$1,800,000

c)Profit P(x) = 180x-126x -540000 = 54x-540000

P(120000) = (12,000x54)-540,000=\$108,000

P(15000)= (15,000x54)-540,000=\$270,000

P(20000) = (20,000x54)-540,000=\$540,000

d)Operating leverage for 12000 sales = [540,000/((126*12,000)+540,000)]*100 =26.31%

Similarly for 15000 and 20000 unit sales.

[540,000/((126*15,000)+540,000)]*100 =22.222%

[540,000/((126*20,000)+540,000)]*100 =17.647%

Kindly ACCEPT the answers. BONUS and POSITIVE feedback will be appreciated.
