Contribution margin is directly related to the contribution margin ratio. The contribution margin ratio can be calculated on a per-unit basis or an aggregate basis. The per-unit basis divides the contribution margin per unit by the unit sale price, while the total contribution margin ratio divides the total contribution margin by the total revenue. The figure will result in a percentage that indicates what percentage of each dollar of revenue is generated to cover fixed costs.
Earnings per share is the portion of a company's profit that is allocated to each outstanding share of its common stock. It is calculated by taking the difference between a company's net income and dividends paid for preferred stock and then dividing that figure by the average number of shares outstanding.
