Fixed asset turnover ratio

The ratio of sales to fixed assets.

Fixed Asset Turnover Ratio

A measure of how efficiently a business generates sales from its investments. That is, it is the ratio of the amount a company earns in sales to the average value of its fixed assets. Fixed assets are investments that cannot easily be converted into cash, e.g. a factory or computer system, and can be quite expensive. Thus, if a company has a high ratio, this means that its sales have kept pace with or exceeded the amount it has invested in fixed assets, which is a positive sign for the company.
