kalps Op Expense ratio = operating expenses / Net Sales GP = Gross profit / Net Sales
carlos3 ROA = (Net Income + Interest(1-t))/Average total Assets

Sad Saturday night for a 25 years old boy.
danlan OP expense ratio is not gross profit/net sales.
Rather we have
gross profit/net sales=(net sales-OP expense)/net sales=1-OP expense ratio
faya gross profit = sales - COGS
op ex = sales - COGS - SG&A expense
So GP rate is not equal to OP EX ratio
johntan1979 Careful now! COGS is not op exp, neither is sales.

Op exp = SG&A exp

Op exp ratio = SG&A / Sales
mlaique Operating Expense Ratio: EBIT / Sales
Gross Profit Ratio: Gross Profit / Sales
