Eliana is a student currently completing her Bachelor of Science in Computational Finance at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU). In her final year, she is required to conduct a small research project in the field of accounting covering any area of her interest. After consulting with her lecturer, Eliana decided to focus on cost-volume-profit analysis and picked Daphne International Holdings Limited (DIHL) as her case company. DIHL is a Hong Kong-based investment holding company, who is also one of the largest shoe manufacturers in China. The Company operates through several segments, including the sales of footwear products under Daphne and Shoe Box and other brands; the manufacturing of fashion and accessory products; and the e-commerce businesses through its subsidiaries. The Company mainly operates its businesses in China, Asia, Europe and North America. For the purpose of her research, Eliana decided to focus on the shoe manufacturing branch by taking three sample products and denoted them as ‘Shoe-A’, ‘Shoe-B’ and ‘Shoe-C’.

Budgeted sales volume for the year includes 4,500 pairs of shoes each for Shoe-A and Shoe-B while that of Shoe-C is 6,000 pairs. Budgeted fixed costs for the year comprise of \$189,500 for manufacturing and \$80,000 for selling and administrative costs. The tax rate applicable for DIHL in Hong Kong is 30 per cent.
