Delay of a price increase - Cost & Value?

(Holding back a trade price increase for Asda, the cost and value for supplier and retailer)

You need a price increase to cover rising costs but have agreed with Asda to maintain current prices for 1.5 months following the new price introduction.

What is the cost to you and the value to Asda in terms of incremental sales?


Annual sales to Asda = £660k
Your Gross Margin = 43.6%
Costs rise = 8%

You have agreed an 8% price increase to restore your % Gross Margin

You have negotiated a 1.5 month delay in implementing the price increase for Asda.

What is the cost to you and the value to Asda of the delay?

NamCalc Tool 13 below, demonstrates that an 8% price rise is required to restore your % Gross Margin.

It also shows that the 1.5 month delay costs you £3,720, and you would need incremental sales of £8,525 to recover your lost gross margin.

For Asda, with a pre-tax Net Margin of 2.1%, the £3,720 is equivalent to incremental sales of £177,142, a point worth making in negotiation…?

The site is looking piece ostentatious and it gets the guests eyes. Outline is really basic and a decent easy to use interface. Duane Berkey
