Profitability ratios are in some sense the “bottom line” ratios. Since, profitability is a result of many factors – such as asset management, sales generation, expense control, etc. – these ratios in some ways sum up the total level of success or failure of the organization. There are many different profitability ratios. Each one focuses on a slightly different measure of profit or return.

Profitability ratios can use many different measures of profit. Some use gross profit, some use EBITDA or EBIT. Net Income is normally thought of as “the bottom line” of the income statement for most entities, including corporations, partnerships, and proprietorships. For nonprofit organizations the “Increase in Net Assets” basically corresponds to “Net Income” in for-profit organizations.
