    Whatever the breakdown is, you need to keep in mind that there was a ton of non-recoverable engineering cost involved with the casing and assembly prototyping and tool set-up, so, regardless of the profit per MBA, they'll need to sell quite a few to break even.

    That said, they probably have about a pretty good margin on them - I'm guessing 40% or perhaps even better.
