2023 editions of SG&A Benchmarks now available for Manufacturing and Retail/Wholesale Trade sectors

By: PRLog

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - July 10, 2023 - PRLog -- Schonfeld & Associates, a publisher of business information products for over 40 years, offers two recently updated industry sector reports in its series, SG&A Benchmarks.  The series of PDF reports is designed for use as a convenient source of information for professional managers seeking benchmark information on Selling, General & Administrative spending by major public corporations within specific industry sectors. Metrics for major public companies provide important insight for other firms within the sector. SG&A expenses are all the direct and indirect selling expenses and all general and administrative expenses. SG&A expenses are also called Operating Expenses. Frequently, SG&A to Sales ratios are used to judge efficiency of management spending.

Benchmarks for SG&A spending are hard to find. Averages may be available but are generally too broad to be useful. Each title within the SG&A Benchmarks series is produced for a specific industry sector. Individual companies are listed with SG&A to Sales percentage and growth rates in sales and spending for fiscal years 2021 and 2022. The sector summary charts provide side by side comparison of values for each industry within the sector for 2019-2022. To allow for easy identification of relative performance within each industry and to account for SG&A spending practices varying by size and location, individual companies are grouped by size based on fiscal 2022 sales. Total sales for fiscal 2022 and headquarters city is also provided.

Since different industries vary significantly in their practices of classification of expenses considered to be reported within SG&A expense, SG&A Benchmarks is produced for individual industry sectors. 2023 editions of following sector reports are now available:

SG&A Benchmarks – Manufacturing Sector provides SG&A spending information for 2053 publicly traded companies in twenty industries.
SG&A Benchmarks –Retail and Wholesale Trade Sector provides SG&A spending information for 293 publicly traded companies in eight retail industries as well as 130 companies in two wholesale industries..

Within each report, the industry sector summary displays median SG&A to Sales ratio by industry to illustrate the range of values reported by firms within each industry. The tabulations for each individual industry present both fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2022 SG&A as a percentage of sales and the annual percentage growth rate in SG&A spending as well as in sales for each company within the industry. Comparing the growth rate of SG&A expenses and sales gives a snapshot of where the profitability of the firm may be heading. The firms are presented in three groups as defined by sales of less than $100 million, sales between $100 million and $1 billion, and sales of more than $1 billion.

Two sets of industry tabulations are presented. Alphabetical order by company name aids in locating a firm. Order by SG&A to Sales ratio showcases the 'leaner and meaner' firms in each industry.

These reports will benefit anyone seeking competitive benchmark intelligence including corporate staff, financial analysts, investment professionals, lenders, M&A advisors, appraisers and industry consultants.
