Breakeven Analysis

An analysis of a product or company's sales required to neither lose money nor make a profit, but simply to cover costs. A company needs to at least break even in order to make the expense of producing a product worth the effort. As a result, breakeven analysis is an important feature in evaluating the risk of an activity. Breakeven analysis calculates the relationship between the fixed costs, variable costs, and profit of the product.
