after-tax profit margin


A ratio used in determining financial performance that is calculated by dividing net income after taxes by net sales. This figure is important to a company because it tells the investors in that business the percentage of income that a company actually earns per dollar of its sales. Interpreted in a similar fashion as profit margin, although after tax profit margin is more stringent as it takes taxes into account in its calculations.
