Why Analyze Net Profit Margin?

Net Profit Margin (also known as net margin) is one of the most commonly used profitability ratio. Net profit margin represents the money a company makes on every dollar of sales. It is computed by dividing the total net income of a company with its total revenues. A positive net margin means the company generated more revenues than its costs and expenses. A negative net margin means the company spent more on its costs and expenses than the revenues it generated.

Net profit margin analysis is important for a number of reasons. First, it helps in understanding the extent of a company's profits or losses. A high positive net margin means the company can keep more money for itself and can possibly invest it into the business to generate more revenues in the future. A high negative net margin means the company is losing a lot of money and its survival will be difficult unless the company grows revenues at a faster rate or cuts its costs and expenses. Common cost cutting measures include outsourcing, employee layoffs, and business units shutdowns or divestitures. Second, a company's historical profit margin analysis along with its revenue forecast analysis can help in forecasting the future profits of a company. Third, a company's net margin comparison with the other companies in the same industry or the industry average can help identify the operationally most efficient companies. A comparison of net margins of companies in different industries can help identify the most profitable business models.
