Calculation of a few commonly used profitability indicators:

Gross Margin:

GM % = (Selling Price - Cost)  x 100 / Selling Price

Example: You sold an item for $49.95, and the cost of the item is $30.00.

GM %  =  (49.95 - 30.00) x 100 / 49.95 = 39.94%

Mark Up:

Mark Up % = (Selling Price - Cost)  x 100 / Cost

Using the above example,

Mark Up % = (49.95 - 30.00)  x 100 / 30.00 = 66.5%

 

Calculation of a Quick Inventory Level:

Weeks of Stock:   

Inventory (at retail) divided by average weekly sales for a given period of time.

So, if you have $8,000.00 worth of inventory in one product, and your total sales of that product for the past 6 weeks is $12,000.00 the calculation would look like this:

$12,000.00 divided by 6 = average weekly sales of $2,000.00

$8,000.00 divided by $2,000.00 = 4

This means that if you did not replenish your inventory and sales continued at the same pace, you would deplete your inventory of that product to zero within 4 weeks.

 

Arguably, the most important retail success indicator:

Gross Margin Return on Inventory Investment (GMROII):

GMROII = GM% x (Sales / Avg. Inventory)

Example: Still using the same numbers from Gross Margin calculation, assume that the store's net sales over a  period of 12 months is 24M and during this time it carries an average inventory of 6M. Then:

GMROII % = 39.94 x (24 / 6) = 159.76%

For other Gross Margin Return Calculations like GMROF and GMROL refer to the Success Guide: Retail Math Made Simple 3rd Edition.
