Scenario:  ABC Company sells widgets in three varieties (blue, red, and yellow) but has lost money for the past three years.  Competitive intelligence shows the Company's products are priced 10% above the competition but that competitor prices will increase by at least 8% annually.  Given the Company is mandated by Widget Cost Reform (WCR) to spend a minimum of x% of revenue on cost of goods sold (COGS), what actions would you recommend to the CFO?  What are the key drivers to attaining profitability by 2015?
