Windfall Profits

Windfall Profits

Windfall profits are large profits that accrue owing to an unexpected and fortuitous turn of events for a company. Companies can make windfall profits when prices of the product, commodity or input they manufacture or supply spike because of supply disruptions or a huge increase in demand. The conditions that lead to windfall profits tend to be one-offs or are at best short term.
