Profit margin of Companhia de saneamento Basico Do Estado De Sao Paulo - Sabesp
Profit margin is calculated with the selling price (or revenue) taken as base times 100. It is the percentage of selling price that is turned into profit. Profit percentages are calculated to find the ratio of profit to cost of an investment. Profit margin is an indicator of a company's pricing strategies and how well it controls costs. Differences in competitive strategy and product mix cause the profit margin to vary among different companies. The profit margin is used mostly for internal comparisons. It is difficult to accurately compare the net profit ratio for different entities. Individual businesses' operating and financing arrangements vary so much that different entities are bound to have different levels of expenditure, so that comparison of one with another can have little meaning. A low profit margin indicates a low margin of safety: higher risk that a decline in sales will erase profits and result in a net loss, or a negative margin.
