a: We're going to have a problem meeting the budget for the production of our new equipment.
b: How much of the problem?
a: Well, it seems that we underestimated the costs. according to the factory, it will cost about eight percent more than initially projected.
b: Let me see... looking at this, if my calculations are correct, we are about five thousand dollars over budget.
a: That's right. it's going to cost about five thousand more to complete the first order.
b: I see...
a: But if sales go as well as they should, that's still we within our profit margin. proceeds from sales of the first order will easily cover the cost of the second order.
b: In other words, you only need a budget increase for the first order.
a: Exactly. After that, the product should finance itself.
b: OK. well, you know, all major budget decisions must be approved by our CEO and the financial offer.
a: Yes, I know. but I thought that if I could get your support first, it might make getting approval easier.
b: Well, You've got my support on this. I'll see what I can do to get the top brass to agree.
