Cost drivers: In addition to the cost of outsourced production (CoGs), the other costs will be the marketing and sales costs related to marketing the products in Belgium and supporting partners abroad. The second cost item is R&D, which covers regulatory affairs and new product development. G&As are costs related to support functions and services such as legal fees, insurance, travel and rent office.
