Dear Per,

In response to your suggestion here are a few statistics regarding local
IR training courses next year.

We had planned to give 48 courses with 16 attendees per course. This
gives a total of 768 course places which is enough for 2 per new
registry formed next year.

Based on the overheads for next year each place on a course costs ECU

If as you suggest we use the difference in revenue between a sign up
fee of ECU 2000 and one of ECU 1300 for extra local IR courses, then we
must spend kECU 268 extra. Based upon the same unit cost of ECU 293 this
means we must offer 915 extra course places. This equates to an extra
+/- 57 courses and leads to a total of 105 courses per year. We do not
think that it is realistic, in terms of staffing and uptake of places
that we offer two courses per week, a fourfold increase on our present

I hope this gives you an impression of the consequences that this
proposal would have and why we still are convinced that the lowering of
the sign up fee is the appropriate course of action.
