REVENUE = UNITS SOLD X PRICE, (for operational year only, no revenue in start up column)
1, Units sold =Target market size (number of buyers from your targeted segment) x market share (from competitor analysis and marketing plan ). Remember any units being given away, per promotions in your marketing plan won’t bring revenue so can’t be in this revenue number, but you have to produce them anyway, so those giveaway units will be counted in your costs below.
2, Price (from marketing plan pricing strategy and/or from competitor analysis). Remember any discounts to your price, per your marketing plan.
COST OF GOODS SOLD = COST PER UNIT X NUMBER OF UNITS , One column in start up period for units produced but not to be sold; and one column for year of operations—units sold

b. units to be produced for start up period and for year one of operations:
i. start up costs: units for inventory, models for display, promotional samples to be given);
ii. Year one of Operations : units sold
c. shipping, transport, export/import fees per unit on separate line
2. Services = cost per unit x units to be sold
a. costs depend on rates per unit in which service is created/delivered, typically labor rate per hour or average dollar value of delivered contract
