Gross margin

Gross income divided by 

Net

 sales, expressed as a percentage. Gross margins reveal how much a company earns taking into 

Consideration

 the costs that it incurs for producing 

ITS

 products and/or services. In other words, 

Gross margin

 is equal to 

Gross income

 divided by 

Net

 sales, and is expressed as a percentage. 

Gross margin

 is a good indication of how profitable a company is at the most fundamental level. Companies with higher gross margins will have more 

Money

 left over to spend on other business operations, such as 

Research

 and development or marketing.
