B1. Appendix 1

Contribution per barrel MM Lager: $15,636,400/520,000 or $97 - $66.93 = $30.07

Contribution per barrel MM Light: $30.07 - $4.69 = $25.38

B2.

2005 2006 2007

Contribution from MM Lager $15,636,400 $15,323,672 $15,017,199

Cannibalization 5% $781,820 $766,183.6 $750,859.9

Cannibalization 20% $3,127,280 $3,064,734.4 $3,003,439.8

Cannibalization 5% = $766,184 + $750,860 = $1,517,044

Cannibalization 20% = $3,064,734 + $3,003,440 = $6,068,174

B3. Appendix 2 & Appendix 3

Total fixed costs = Initial advertising costs + SG&A2006 + SG&A2007

Fixed cost 2006 = $750,000 + $900,000 + $766,183.6 = 2,416,184

B/E 2006 5% = 2,416,184/25.38 = 95,200

B/E 2007 5% = $0 + $900,000 + $750,860 = 1,650,860 /25.38 = 65,046

Cannibalization 5%= 95,200+ 65,046 = 160,246 units

B/E 2006 20% = $750,000 + $900,000 + $3,064,734.4 = 4,714,734 /25.38 = 185,766

B/E 2007 20% = $0 + $900,000 + $3,003,440 = $3,903,440/25.38 = 153,780

Cannibalization 20% = 185,766 + 153,780 = 339,566 units
