at $84.95. We are currently charging a 10% premium over their price, but there are unsubstantiated rumors that they are contemplating a 10% price increase. We don’t know their cost structure, so we don’t know whether their potential price increase is driven by cost increases or is merely a strategic move on their part.

Historically, when we both charge the same price, our market share is about 65%. When we charge a 10 percent premium over their price, our market share declines to about 60%. It appears that in those instances where they have charged a 10% premium over our price, our market share is about 70%. Please provide a recommendation regarding whether we should maintain our current price or reduce our price to $84.95.
