LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. - Aug. 21, 2018 - PRLog -- Schonfeld & Associates, a publisher of business information products for over 40 years, now offers all eleven industry sector reports in its series, SG&A Benchmarks.  The series of PDF reports is designed for use as a convenient source of information for professional managers seeking benchmark information on Selling, General & Administrative spending by major public corporations within specific industry sectors. Metrics for major public companies provide important insight for other firms within the sector. SG&A expenses are all the direct and indirect selling expenses and all general and administrative expenses. SG&A expenses are also called Operating Expenses. Frequently, SG&A to Sales ratios are used to judge efficiency of management spending.

Benchmarks for SG&A spending are hard to find. Averages may be available but are generally too broad to be useful. Each title within the SG&A Benchmarks series is produced for a specific industry sector. Individual companies are listed with last year's SG&A to Sales percentage and growth rates in sales and spending for the year. For use in setting and evaluating budgets, estimates are given for the current year SG&A to Sales percentage and expected growth in sales and spending. The sector summary chart provides side by side comparison of 10%ile, median, and 90%ile values for each industry within the sector. To allow for easy identification of relative performance within each industry and to account for SG&A spending practices varying by size and location, individual companies are grouped by size based on sales and information on total sales and headquarters city is listed.

Since different industries vary significantly in their practices of classification of expenses considered to be reported within SG&A expense, SG&A Benchmarks is produced for individual industry sectors. As of August 2018, the following sector reports are available:

The tabulations for each individual industry present both last year and this year SG&A as a percentage of sales and the annual percentage growth rate in SG&A spending as well as in sales for each company within the industry. Comparing the growth rate of SG&A expenses and sales gives a snapshot of where the profitability of the firm may be heading. The firms are presented in three groups as defined by sales of less than $100 million, sales between $100 million and $1 billion, and sales of more than $1 billion.

Two sets of industry tabulations are presented. Alphabetical order by company name aids in locating a firm. Order by SG&A to Sales ratio showcases the 'leaner and meaner' firms in each industry.
