Foxy Originals Expansion into the US Market

Case Solution

A successful Canadian jewelry manufacturer and distributor contemplates entering the U.S. market and how best to do it. Students are required to:  1) identify costs relevant to the decision and categorize them as either investments, fixed costs or variable costs;  2) calculate unit contribution, contribution-margin ratio and weighted-average-contribution-margin rates;  3) perform a breakeven analysis and interpret its meaning using relevant parameters;  4) project profitability of a chosen distribution strategy; and  5) perform sensitivity analysis with respect to the expected sales level. Students are required to understand and analyse the opportunities and risks associated with entering a new geographic market and combine their qualitative and quantitative analysis when deciding which distribution strategy to pursue. This is part of the subset of Ivey cases and technical notes written for Introductory-Level courses.
