What is the Operating Margin?

The operating margin shows how efficiently a company turns revenue into operating income by showing margin after operating expenses and COGS (cost of goods sold). Operating expenses include everything from rent and insurance to marketing, sales, R&D, and other employee costs (except manufacturing employees, who would roll into COGS).

Operating margin is very similar to EBIT margin – for some companies, operating income and EBIT are equivalent. However, EBIT includes non-operating expenses and income, so many companies will differ in the two measures.

Operating Margin Formula

The formula for operating margin is:

Operating\ Margin=\frac{operating\ income}{revenue}


  • Operating Income: Operating Income, Income from Operations, or Operating Profit from the earnings statement.
  • Revenue: The company's top line sales
