Customer Question
Imagine that you were...

Imagine that you were hired recently as a financial analyst for a relatively​ new, highly leveraged ski manufacturer located in the foothills of​ Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Your firm manufactures only one​ product, a​ state-of-the-art snow ski. Up to this point the company has been operating without much quantitative knowledge of the business and financial risks it faces.
Ski season just​ ended, however, so the president of the company has started to focus more on the financial aspects of managing the business. He has set up a meeting for next week with the​ CFO, Maria​ Sanchez, to discuss matters such as the business and financial risks faced by the company.
​Accordingly, Maria has asked you to prepare an analysis to assist her in her discussions with the president. As a first step in your​ work, you compiled the information in the popup​ window, LOADING...​, regarding the cost structure of the​ company:
As the next​ step, you need to determine the​ break-even point in units of output for the company. One of your strong points has been that you always prepare supporting work papers that show how you arrived at your conclusions. You know Maria would like to see these work papers to facilitate her review of your work.​ Therefore, you will have the information you require to prepare an analytical income statement for the company. You are sure that Maria would also like to see this statement. In​ addition, you know that you need it to be able to answer the following questions. You also know Maria expects you to​ prepare, in a format that is presentable to the​ president, answers to the following questions to serve as a basis for her discussions with the president.
a. What is the​ firm's break-even point in sales​ dollars?
b. If sales should increase by 2020 percent​ (as the president​ expects), by what percentage would EBT​ (earnings before​ taxes) and net income​ increase?
c. Prepare another income​ statement, this time to verify the calculations from part ​(b​).
