Projected Revenue Growth

After all, it’s practically hard for a business to sustainably improve profitability without also expanding revenues. Therefore, it’s crucial to understand a company’s potential for revenue development.

For Merck, the $13.8 billion average sales forecast for the upcoming quarter indicates a year-over-year drop of -13.2%. The forecasts of $58.51 billion and $62.47 billion for the current and following fiscal years, respectively, show movements of -1.3% and +6.8%.
