Key Ratios Benchmarks - RETAIL
We have identified six key ratios as particularly important for retailers to monitor, project, and manage:
- Current Ratio
- Debt-to-Worth Ratio
- Gross Margin Percent
- Pre-Tax Profit Percent
- Inventory Turnover
- GMROI (Gross Margin Return on Inventory Investment)
We publish the six key ratio performance metrics in chart form to illustrate the trends over time. We also include key financial ratios for four major restaurant verticals. Use the links below to go directly to a particular vertical's page of Key Ratios Benchmarks.
The retail and restaurant verticals featured at the Business STRATA:G® site reflect the definitions and designations of the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). The top of each Retail Vertical Page includes the NAICS code and the NAICS definition for that industry segment.
The source data is Risk Management Association's Annual Statement Studies. As you may know, RMA collects financial statements from banks, and aggregates the findings for all industries, not just retailing. RMA presents their data in 3 sections: the Top Quartile, the Middle Quartiles, the Bottom Quartile, for five different ranges of annual sales volume. Our Five Year Charts are based on the Middle Quartiles results.
