The point in a business project when income equals expenses

Term applied to both annual accounting and individual project accounting processes. It simply means that the total costs and the income from all sources are "in balance" â€“ i.e. that there is neither a surplus (profit) nor a loss to be recorded. For a project, there might be "hidden costs" â€“ for example, in staff time that is not allocated specifically to the project itself but is contained within the overall operational costs of the originating organisation (see cost centre).

Refers to a price at which an option's cost is equal to the proceeds acquired by exercising the option. The buyer of a call pays a premium. His break-even point is calculated by adding the premium paid to the call's strike price. For example, if you purchase a May 58 cotton call for 2.25¢ per pound when May cotton futures are at 59.48¢/lb., the break-even price is 60.25¢/lb. (58.00¢/lb. + 2.25¢/lb. = 60.25¢/lb.). For a put purchaser, the break-even point is calculated by subtracting the premium paid from the put's strike price. Please note that, for puts, you do not exercise unless the futures price is below the break-even point.
