A profit margin is the proportion of revenue sales a company earns after deducting different types of expenses. There are three frequently used profitability metrics in financial analysis - gross profit margin, operating profit margin (EBIT margin), and net profit margin (net income margin). Below are the formulas for calculating each of these metrics: Gross Profit Margin = (Revenue - COGS) / Revenue x 100 EBIT Margin = (Revenue - COGS - Operating Expenses) / Revenue x 100 Net Income Margin = (Revenue - COGS - Operating Expenses - Interest - Taxes) / Revenue x 100
