Efficiency Ratios - Key Performance IndicatorsIndustry Average

Average Collection Period
Based on the Receivables Turnover, this estimates the collection period in days. Calculated as 365 divided by the Receivables Turnover
Inventory Turnover
A low turnover rate may point to overstocking, obsolescence, or deficiencies in the product line or marketing effort.
