                                  The Contribution margin is the most basic of all financial measures, and is basically trying to determine the profitability of individual products and/or whole product lines. The contribution margin discovers how much capital is left after subtracting direct variable costs, which can be used to cover fixed costs and generate profits.

                                  Variable costs are costs that can be directly coupled to the production of products or services.

                                  Variable costs could e.g. be:

                                  Direct labor costs
                                  Costs of goods sold
                                  Transportation costs
                                  Direct materials
                                  Etc.

                                  Fixed costs could e.g. be:
                                  Rent
                                  Electricity
                                  Advertising costs
                                  Depreciation
                                  Insurances
                                  Different Utilities
                                  Etc.

                                  Below, the formulas for contribution margin and contribution margin ratio are presented

                                  Contribution Margin
                                  Contribution Margin = Sales - Variable costs


                                  Contribution Margin Ratio
                                  Contribution Margin Ratio = Contribution margin / Sales

                                  Example: Company X sells a product for $1000, and the products variable costs are $250, then company X gets a contribution margin of $750. The contribution margin ratio will then be $750/ $1000 = 75%.

                                  When analyzing contribution margin and contribution margin ratios, business leaders can evaluate if e.g. a certain product or product line performs satisfactorily. If the contribution margin is too low, business leaders can seek to minimize variable costs, or try to raise the selling price of the product. If none of the options are feasible, companies may terminate the production of products showing an unsatisfactory contribution margin.
