Asset turnover

Asset turnover measures how efficiently a company uses its assets to generate sales.

Expanded Definition

Asset turnover is the revenue generated for every dollar of assets owned by the company. The ratio is a measure of management efficiency.

As different industries have different structural requirements, a company's asset turnover should be compared with those of companies in the same industry.
