					REVENUE POTENTIAL

The process of determining revenue potential from the Alpen Bank case is based on determining revenue potential per customer segment and then
determining the overall value per customer. First, determine the relative value of each segment. Find the number of potential cardholders by segment
and weight the value of each segment by calculating the percent of the total potential cardholders each segment represents. (e.g. the middle class is
18.2% of the total population and 39.53% of total potential cardholders). The Annual Revenue per Middle Class Cardholder is €60.63. Calculate the
share of total revenue potential accounted for by the Middle Class. Complete the exercise for each segment and total to determine the average annual
revenue per customer.

Upon completion of the work to be able to estimate revenue and acquisition costs, the process of estimating the relative values of successfully
attracting customers at various levels of market penetration. The goal is to determine, based on revenue potential and acquisition costs, how many
customers need to be acquired to achieve objectives the objectives of breakeven and the required ROI of €5 M.

The case adds the information regarding fixed cost s. There is a cost of advertising at €2 million and infrastructure fixed costs of €5 million for the first
50,000 customers and an additional €750,000 for every additional 50,000 customers (changing the relevant cost range).

Variable cost additions to support customers were €20 per customer for the first 50,000 customers. Economies of scale are calculated to drop the per
customer charge by €2.50 with every additional 50,000 customers.

                                                                     Number of Customers (Middle Class + Affluent)
