Report provides distributors with industry financial benchmarks
St. Louis, MO - The National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED) released its annual NAED PAR ReportTM Industry Overview that compiles performance data from NAED electrical distributors to provide a benchmark for performance in 2013.
Featuring statistical breakouts by sales volume, customer emphasis, and warehouse sales, the 2014 industry overview profiles the “typical” and “high profit” NAED distributor as well as provides in-depth reporting on investment, income statement, balance sheet, and financial and productivity ratios. Other measures covered in the report include inventory turnover, sales per employee, average collection period, return on assets, and much more.
The report shows that electrical distributor profit margins increased to a median of 3.4 percent in 2013, consistent with 2012’s median. Among the top performing “high profit” distributors, the 2013 profit margin was 6.6 percent, up slightly from last year’s profit margin of 6.3 percent.
