Sales Growth

The amount a company derives from sales compared to a previous, corresponding period of time in which the latter sales exceed the former. For example, a company has experienced sales growth when its sales were $1 million in Q1 2009 and are $1.2 million in Q1 2010. Sales growth is considered positive for a company's survival and profitability. It may result in increased dividends for shareholders and/or higher stock prices.
