Key Business Ratios on the Web

Dun & Bradstreet® Key Business Ratios on the Web (KBR) provides immediate online access to competitive benchmarking data. This powerful tool lets researchers examine industry benchmarks compiled from Dun & Bradstreet’s database of public and private companies, featuring 14 key business ratios (users choose a one-year or five-year set of ratios) for public and private companies in 800 lines of businesses plus 30 key business ratios online.

Solvency Ratios: examine the financial soundness of a company and how well it can meet short and long-term obligations.

Efficiency Ratios: check the quality of receivables and the efficiency of asset control; measure the effectiveness of payment to supplier; and evaluate over or under-trading on equity.

Profitability Ratios: study how profit is earned relative to sales, total assets and net worth.

Industry Norms: these ratios provide a side-by-side comparison of a business with its industry peers. These norms can help spot important trends, identify strengths and weaknesses, or serve as a benchmark for evaluating company risk.
