The following sections outline the financial plan for Tucson Electronics.
The company's break-even analysis is based on an average company's running costs within this industry, including payroll, and its fixed costs for such things as rent, utilities, etc. As Tucson Electronics operates as a job-shop, with each task a unique, customized service, it is difficult to estimate revenue per unit and variable costs. The reader must understand that there is a high degree of variance within these estimates.
The reader will also note that the company is not expected to reach its break-even point until the last three months of sales of the first year.

The Business ratios give an overall idea of how profitable, and at what risk level, Tucson Electronics will operate at. The ratio table gives both time series analysis and cross-sectional analysis by including industry average ratios. Industry Profile ratios are based on Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code 7622, Radio and Television Repair. As can be seen from the comparison between industry standards and Tucson Electronics own ratios, there are some differences. Most of these are due to the fact that there is a very large variance in assets, liabilities, financing, and net income between companies in this industry due to the vast differences in company size. The reader will also note that there is a fair amount of variability between the various years. This is due to the fact that the company is expected to grow quickly and have a large variance in profitability from year to year at first.
Overall the company's projections show a company that faces the usual risks of companies in this industry and one that will be profitable in the long-run. The company shows that it has higher advertising and start-up costs than other competitors, however management has deliberately overstated costs and minimized profits in order to create a "safe" or "buffer" zone in case of hard times or other unforeseeable problems. Pre-tax return on net worth and pre-tax return on assets appears to be very high, especially within the first two years, however again this is due to the fact that the company will be facing highly variable revenue and costs over the first few years.
