Relation between payback period and break-even pointEdit

There is a mistake in the 1st sentence:

"Payback period in capital budgeting refers to the period of time required to recoup the funds expended in an investment, or to reach the break-even point."

The company can reach break-even point in any accounting period, even before the end of payback period.
