    Video Concepts, Inc. (VCI) markets video equipment and film through a variety of retail outlets. Presently, VCI is faced with a decision as to whether it should obtain the distribution rights to an unreleased film titled Touch of Orange. If this film is distributed by VCI directly to large retailers, VCI's investment in the project would be $150,000. VCI estimates the total market for the film to be 100,000 units. Other data available are as follows:
    Cost of distribution rights for film $125,000
    Label design 5,000
    Package design 10,000
    Advertising 35,000
    Reproduction of copies (per 1,000) 4,000
    Manufacture of labels and packaging (per 1,000) 500
    Royalties (per 1,000) 500
    VCI's suggested retail price for the film is $20 per unit. The retailer's margin is 40%
    a. What is VCI's unit contribution and contribution margin?
    b. What is the break-even point in units? In dollars?
    c. What share of the market would the film have to achieve to earn a 20% return on VCI's investment the first year?
