Sales Y/Y of First Data Corporation
The annual revenue growth is calculated as is an arithmetic mean of a series of growth rates. For this specific metric the calculation takes into account a series of the last three annual growth rates. The average annual revenue growth is useful for determining trends but it can be misleading since only the differences between years are compared and not the starting and ending point (which can happen to be identical). As a result, compounded annual growth rate can be used for evaluating changing financial metrics.
