Interesting analysis from Valuebuddies.com (by cmeng_chan)

I compared the Gross/Net Margin.  

Gross margin indicates the direct costs in making the product (production operator headcount costs, material costs, etc).

For a gross margin of 20%, that would mean a $100 product costs $80 to build, and company earns $20 gross margin.

On the other hand, net margin includes all other non-direct costs (Sales, IT, HR, etc) to keep the business running.



CEO Lou YiliangThe current CEO Lou Yiliang took up the position at end 2015. How was the transformation?

The gross margin is close to 20% after he took over, which means production costs came down.

The nett margin shows a steady climb to 10.69%, which means that other costs came down too.

Generally, operations are getting more efficiently run under this CEO.
