An efficient operation keeps SGA costs low and thus has higher profit margin. The percentage of SGA relative to total revenue is an indication of how efficiently the company operates.

A comparison of the SGA cost relative to the revenue with the historical value can also be an indication of how efficient the company has become.

Companies with no durable competitive advantage show wild variation in SG&A as % of Gross Profit.
