It is important for a banker to make a marginal analysis of the profitability for a deeper understanding of the cost and profit behaviour of a business or a product. This chapter introduces the concept of break-even analysis while dealing with a real problem of an entrepreneur. Using real-life examples, it acquaints the reader with the usage of this important tool in the appraisal of a business, which would also enable him to counsel entrepreneurs, about the operating and financial viability of product(s).

Keywords:   entrepreneur, variable cost, fixed cost, marginal cost, marginal analysis, break-even sales, profit–volume ratio, profitability analysis, break-even analysis, business appraisal
