Key Note Business Ratio Reports evaluate key industry sectors

Each report will enable you to compare, contrast and analyse the financial performance of the leading companies in each market place. Performance ratios will help you easily identify the financial strengths and weaknesses of competitors in terms of profitability, liquidity, gearing, sales growth, employee performance and efficiency.

Why use a Business Ratio Report?

Business Ratio Reports focus on the performance of the leading players. Having closely analysed the sector, our editors and analysts have compiled the largest companies, so you don't have to.


Ideal for benchmarking your own company's performance, you can choose to benchmark your company against a major competitor, or assess the overall industry average performance. The reports enable you to focus on the criteria that are important to your business. Setting realistic performance targets becomes easier; with Business Ratio Reports, you can be confident that they are based on solid facts about your industry.

Track Performance Trends

With at least 3-years of financial data and analysis for each company and the entire industry you can identify performance trends instantly.

Identify Acquisition Targets
Business Ratio Reports make it simple for you to identify potential acquisitions. You can easily find companies that meet your criteria using the Performance League Tables.

Save Time and Money
Take the hard work out of financial performance analysis and focus on using the vital information each report imparts to drive your business forward.

Client perspective:

The Business Ratio Report Series offers a snapshot view of key players within a specific UK industry and relates their performance against others in the sector. The context against which individual company performance can be judged is provided by the well presented introductory overview of the industry at the beginning of the publication. All data appears in a user friendly format, with graphs and explanations provided appropriately.
Unlike many other publishers who set a single high turnover or profit threshold which all companies in all industries must meet in order to be included in the selection, this series identifies the industry norm for each sector and adjusts the entry level accordingly. The result is a more balanced representation.
By using this series in association with the directory UKplc, readers will obtain a comprehensive picture of industry performance. For those who are not accountants, a well structured "User Guide" helps to explain and clarify the relevance of the figures provided and how they may be used to drive corporate strategy.
