Mergent Online Industry Ratios


This video shows how to generate
industry ratios using the database Mergent Online. From the library
homepage select databases in the left navigation, “M,” and Mergent Online. On the basic Search tab enter a major company in your industry of interest in the
“Company Name” box. Select the company to pull up its record. Select the “Competitors” tab to get a list of other
companies with the same NAICS code. Just above the table on the right select “Add All to Company Analysis List,” and Company Analysis List. Now a key step on this
screen is to make sure you’re on the Company Comparison Report. Move the
companies and indicators you want to the boxes on the right. Select the double
right arrow to move all the company names at once. Next, select the specific ratios you want.
Choose the years you’d like, and be sure to check the “Include Average” box. Finally
select the format of your report and click the “Create Report button. The report
file will automatically download. Viewing it, the figures labeled “Peer Average” are the
ratios for our industry. This concludes the video. If you have any questions, just ask
a librarian.
