WHY ANALYZE REVENUE GROWTH?

Revenue growth is the most commonly analyzed financial metric.¬†Revenue Growth is the percent increase (or decrease) of a company’s revenue between two time periods. It is computed by using the following formula: ((revenues during the time period two – revenues during the time period one) / revenues during the time period one)*100. If the time periods are two consecutive years, then the revenue growth is referred to as the annual revenue growth year-over-year. If the time periods are two consecutive quarters, then the revenue growth is referred to as the quarterly revenue growth quarter-over-quarter. If the time periods refer to the same quarter in the two consecutive years, then the revenue growth is referred to as quarterly revenue growth year-over-year. In case the time periods are two non-consecutive years, then the revenue CAGR (Commutative Annual Growth Rate) is computed.

Revenue growth analysis is important for a number of reasons. First, it¬†helps in understanding how a business is performing. If the revenue growth rates are positive, it means the business is performing well and the revenues are increasing. If the revenue growth rates are negative, it means the revenues are declining and the company needs to take measures to increase them. If they don’t, the company will continue to shrink. Second, a company’s historical revenue growth analysis along with the market size and market share analysis¬†helps in forecasting the future revenues of a company. Third, a comparison of a company’s growth rates with its competitors¬†helps in determining who is winning more business. A revenue growth higher than the industry average translates into increasing market share. Companies with very high revenue growth rates have the potential to be the industry disrupters.
