A project has the following estimated data: price = \$52 per unit; variable costs = \$33 per unit; fixed costs = \$15,500; required return = 12 percent; initial investment = \$32,000; life = four years.

 Ignoring the effect of taxes, what is the accounting break-even quantity? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.)

 Break-even quantity

 What is the degree of operating leverage at the financial break-even level of output? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 3 decimal places, e.g., 32.161.)

 DOL

a) Accounting break-even point = (FC + Depreciation) / (Price - VC)

FC - Fixed Cost = 15,500, Depreciation = 32,000/4 = 8,000, Price = 52, VC = 33

=> BEP = (15,500 + 8,000) / (52 - 33) = 1,236.84

b) Cash break-even point = FC / (Price - VC) = 15,500 / (52 - 33) = 815.79

c) Financial Break-even is when NPV = 0

NPV = - Investment + PV of CF = -32,000 + OCF x PVIFA (12%, 4) = 0

=> OCF = 32,000 / 3.037 = \$10,535.50

=> BEP x (52 - 33) - 15,500 = 10,535.50

=> BEP = 1,370.29

d) DOL = 1 + FC / OCF = 1 + 15,500 / 10,535.50 = 2.471
