ranking 13/01/2021

Information agency Credinform represents a ranking of the largest Russian food retailers. Companies of “Perekrestok, “Pyaterochka”, “Karusel”, “Lenta” and “Magnit” chains with the largest volume of annual revenue were selected for the ranking, according to the data from the State statistical authorities and the Federal Tax Service for the latest available periods (2017 - 2019). The companies were ranked by return on sales ratio (Table 1). The analysis was based on the data of the Information and Analytical system Globas.

Return on sales (%) is calculated as the share of operating profit in the total sales of the company. The ratio shows the efficiency of the production and commercial activities of the company, as well as the share of funds received from sale of products after covering its cost, taxes and interest on loans.

The range of values of the ratio for companies of the same industry is determined by differences in competitive strategies and product groups.

For the most complete and objective view of the financial condition of the enterprise, it is necessary to pay attention to the complex of indicators and financial ratios of the company.
