Currency change in profitability structure

Anonymous A asked on Jul 23, 2019 - 2 answers

Revenue=Quant. X Revenue per Quant.

Revenue per Quant. : 1) List Price 2) Mix

Where can we capture the changing currency? Many global companies suffer they sell in the local curency but report in dollars when USD increases vs. the local currency.

You can break down list price into 1) list price in local currency, and 2) USD to local currency FX rate.
