The formula for contribution margin ratio is:
CM ratio = (total revenue – cost of goods sold – any other variable expenses) / total revenue
Contribution margin is not necessarily a good indication of economic benefit. Companies may have significant fixed costs that need to be factored in. It can be important to perform a break even analysis to determine how many units need to be sold and at what to breakeven.
In order to perform this analysis, calculate the contribution margin per unit, then divide the fixed costs by this number and you will know how many units you have to sell to break even.
