The company needs to increase production levels to achieve a break-even level.

The break-even is sales volume at which the profit of the entrepreneur is zero.

The break-even point in monetary terms, is also called the “profitability threshold”, is calculated using the following formula:

BEP=FC/KMR.At the existing production level, the break-even level can be calculated as follows:


KMR=MR/TR

MR=TR-VC=50-40=10

KMR=10/50=0.2

BEP=60/0.2=300 mln



In long run, this firm should rises its price, or produce volume over the BEP, or exit the market.
