What is an Equity Turnover Ratio?

An equity turnover ratio is a financial metric that is highly relevant within the construction industry. Essentially, it measures how efficiently a construction company leverages its equity to generate revenue. The ratio is calculated by dividing the company’s annual sales by average shareholder equity. The resulting number indicates how many times the company has turned its equity into revenue during a given year. A high equity turnover ratio is typically a good sign, indicating a company’s efficient use of its shareholder’s equity. It reflects the company's ability to manage its operations and utilize its assets effectively. This ratio is particularly important in the construction industry as it involves high capital expenditure and risk. Underinvestment or overinvestment can negatively impact profitability. Therefore, this ratio can be a key determinant of a construction company's financial health and operational efficiency.
