Key Business Ratios helps you understand the true performance of a company, by benchmarking it against its industry peers. 14 key business ratios cover all critical areas of business performance—solvency, efficiency and profitability.
Ratios are arranged by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code, a four-digit number that classifies business establishments by defining the industries in which they do business. These codes make it easy to compare a business’ operating results with those of specific competitors or the industry as a whole. They are broken down into median figures, with upper and lower quartiles, providing you with a more refined set of figures to work with. Using an individual company’s financial statements with Key Business Ratios, you can generate a comparison of a company's own business ratios with the industry.
