The case has assumed that profitability will reduce < $15 mn . But given the projected price per envelope, quantity projected to be sold, & cost per envelope - the client remains profitable in either case.
1 . Price per envelope remains : $ 1
2. Cost per envelope has been deduced to be $ 0.7 per envelope
3. Quantity sold: 50 mn, 100 mn & 75 mn in previous year, current year & next year respectively
3. Taking the above numbers
Profits in previous, current & next year: $ 15 mn, $30 mn & $22.5 mn
So client can anyway maintain the profit.
Is there anything i am missing here?
