Its profit margin is 4% higher, its ROA is 4.3% higher and ROE is 7.1% higher. d) Two major reasons for Foremost’s better performance are its lower cost of goods sold (56% of net sales versus 60%) resulting in higher gross margin percentage of 44%, and a relatively higher asset turnover ratio. Foremost had an asset turnover ratio of 0.82 while First’s was only 0.62.
