We made an assumption that every 6 months 20 more retailers will purchase cars with our glass and an extra car every 6 months. Thus, we will sell 1,860 cars worth of glass in the first year. First 6 months: (6 months*50 car retailers*2 cars per month) = 600 cars sold
Second 6 months: (6 months*70 car retailers*3 cars per month) = 1260 cars sold Breakeven Analysis Financial Projections Financial Projections 1,860 cars worth glass sold first year Average selling price of $600 per car Break Even in October,2016 Cash positive in May 2016 Net sales of $1,908,000 in Y2 Financial Projections Financial Projections Monthly Cash Burn in Y2: $87,882
