The erosion of Jell-O Contribution Margin is justifiable as we consider cost profitability, expansion of market growth, company improvement, the development of new customer tastes , and company innovation. In our analysis we assume that Jell-O will suffer erosion of sales and profits from the introduction of this new product, therefore our analysis includes the erosion as a negative cash flow. Thus, this causes us to predict that other companies will follow the increasing market growth and produce similar products to capture a piece of the market share. Reviewing our calculations in the attached Exhibits I through IV P.D.C. Consultants see that erosion causes the overall NPV to decrease. However, the NPV is greater than zero in all cases, therefore P.D.C. Consultants conclude General Foods should go ahead with Super Project.
