Question description

Assignment 2: Analyzing Profitability and Other Variables

Cost-volume-profit analysis is an extension of break-even analysis. CVP analysis enables managers to understand cost behavior and the effect on profits in response to a wide variety of influences, such as changes in volume, variable and fixed costs, and price. This helps management make appropriate business decisions. For example, CVP analysis helps management identify a break-even point if volume or costs change or determine the volume necessary for a targeted profit level. CVP analysis can also help management develop a pricing strategy by projecting the effects the different price structures will have on costs and profits.

In this assignment, you will examine how you can use CVP analysis to plan and make various business decisions. In addition, you will analyze financial data of Compnet’s potential product acquisition (Prime Component) and determine the effects on profit due to variations in its costs and sales price.

Part II: Performing CVP Analysis

Continuing with the same scenario as in previous assignments for Compnet, complete the following:

• Recalculate the break-even point on the basis of the following what-if scenarios:
• Create a 4 page paper that includes the above calculations and analyzes the decision options.
• Create a one-page memo for your senior management that summarizes your findings and provides recommendations.

Review standard office memo templates available on the internet and create the one-page memo in Microsoft Word considering the audience to whom this information needs to be presented.

Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
