Benchmarking Report Shows Climbing ROI for Construction Industry

The Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) recently published its 2016 Construction Financial Benchmarker Report. The purpose of the report is to aid in identifying key industry operating statistics, multi-year trends and financial benchmarks for industry members and interested parties.

The report includes analysis of financial and operational data of 869 companies surveyed segmented by:

-Industry: Industrial & Nonresidential (37.7%), Heavy & Highway (19.1%) and Specialty Trade (42%);

-Revenue: Under $10 Million, $10-25 Million, $25-50 Million, $50-100 Million, $100-300 Million and Over $300 Million; and

-U.S. Geographic Region: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West and Far West

One of the more interesting aspects of the report is the “Best in Class” information for the top 25% of companies in each industry based on a composite ranking of 5 key performance metrics: return on assets, return on equity, fixed assets ratio, debt to equity and working capital turnover.
