Pretax Profit Margin
For example, suppose that Company A has earnings before tax of $10 million and total sales of $100 million in a given fiscal year. It has a pretax margin of 10%. The profit margin figure also enables profitability to be compared across companies with significant differences in size and scale. Company B, which has $500 million in sales and $40 million in pretax earnings may have substantially higher profitability than company A in dollar terms, but has a lower pretax profit margin of 8%.
