Break-Even Sales

Anheuser-Busch InBev Companies, Inc., reported the following operating information for a recent year (in millions of dollars):

Net sales $47,063
Cost of goods sold $18,756
Selling, general and administration 12,999
Income from operations $15,308*
*Before special items

In addition, assume that Anheuser-Busch InBev sold 400 million barrels of beer during the year. Assume that variable costs were 75% of the cost of goods sold and 50% of selling, general and administration expenses. Assume that the remaining costs are fixed. For the following year, assume that Anheuser-Busch InBev expects pricing, variable costs per barrel, and fixed costs to remain constant, except that new distribution and general office facilities are expected to increase fixed costs by $300 million.
