An increase in sales volume will always increase EBIT profit margin apparently, I'm just trying to identify the mathematical reasoning why?If the proportion of ebit to revenue stays the same with an increase in volume then the percentage profit margin will also stay the same. So the only way for the percentage profit margin to increase is if the proportion of ebit to revenue increases.
Multiplying by 100 is identical to multiplying by 100%…Look at last character in my formula. See the % sign. That is what your formula lacks
But my question remains unanswered, that is why increasing sales volume increases EBIT profit margin. Could you give an example maybe?Multiplying by 100 is identical to multiplying by 100%…
