Gross Margin is a simple but powerful financial ratio. Gross Margin (GM) is the company's Gross Profit divided by Total Revenue. Gross Profit (GP) is Total Revenue less Cost of Goods Sold (COGS).

You can thus get Gross Margin in two different ways:

• Gross Margin = (Revenue - COGS) / Revenue
• Gross Margin = Gross Profit / Revenue

Gross Margin is expressed as a percentage and Gross Margin + COGS always equals 100% by definition. For example, if your company has a 22% Cost of Goods Sold, then you also have a 78% Gross Margin.
