Create a P&L statement for a buyer of Bailey's Menswear Big and Tall in lower Manhattan. He has achieved a planned initial markup percentage of 48.5 percent on sales of $655,500 in June. The markdowns amounted to $15,450 and expenses were fixed at $285,000. The combination of these factors has resulted in a profit of 2.7 percent for the month of June. However toward the end of the month, sales begin to drop and the buyer becomes anxious about July sales slacking off even further.

Create another P&L statement to calculate the effect on the net profit if sales slack off 8 percent and the buyer maintains the same MU% and his expenses are fixed at the June level.

Complete these two P&L statements both in dollars and percentages, and discuss the effect that the drop in sales will have on the net profit. What plan of action would you suggest to boost lagging sales before the month of July begins?
