An opportunity exists to penetrate and perhaps dominate an offshore market, PseudoLand, worth an estimated $20 million in sales per year. Domestically, however, each dollar of revenue consistently produces the following income statement (P/L):

Delivered Cost of Goods .55
Gross Profit$ .45

Selling Expns .06
General & Admin Expns .30

Operating Profit$ .09

1. An export company has taken charge of the effort to date, but this arrangement is not exclusive. 2. Selling directly to PseudoLand consumers over the internet 3. Using a local distribution company to sell products in
