The Revenue per Employee is basically the total revenues generated by a company divided by the number of employees it has. It is a term used to measure the productivity of the employees of an organisation as well as how much they help contribute towards generating revenues for that company.

Revenue per employee is often preferred to profits because is unaffected by management and board decisions as per its cost of capital, how it allocates resources, efficiency at managing cost etc. all of which affects profitability.  Revenue per employee is also viewed from one industry to another, rather than inter company. It is always meaningful to compare a company with another within its industry.

As depicted in the chart above, Oando and all the other oil and gas firms top, make up the first 6 because of high volume nature of oil and gas industries.

Energy Industry

 

The energy industry is associated with high turnovers but lower margins due to the volume of consumption of oil and gas related products. It is thus not a surprise that they top the list of industries with the highest revenue per employee. At, N730 million per staff, Energy employees increased their revenues by 69% compared to the N432 million recorded a year earlier.

High on the list was Oando, who saw their staff contribute a whopping N2.4 million a 436% increase from the N455 million reported a year earlier. Total Plc and Mobil also recorded significant rise in the revenue per staff figures. Seplat was the only loser with 44% of its revenue dropping per staff, a situation mostly attributed to the inactivity in its main export lines, Forcados Terminal.

For other major Nigerian companies cutting across the consumer goods index, industrials, agriculture, construction and conglomerates, they achieved an average of N28 million per staff in revenue just 3% increase from the N37 million achieved a year earlier. Dangote Sugar topped our list with a revenue per staff of N120 million in 2016, representing a 15% drop from the N140 million achieved a year earlier. Dangote Sugar was also number 1 last year. Dangote Cement its sister company and by the largest company within the Dangote Family, generated N40 million per staff. The largest percentage rise in 2016 was Transcorp Group, which recorded a revenue growth of 55% to N29 million per staff compared to N19 million a year earlier. Lafarge Africa recorded the single largest drop of 31% to N49 million, compared to N71 million a year earlier.

Why this matters

As explained above, revenue per staff is only used to determine how companies utilize their most important asset, human capital, to optimize revenue. Even though industries like the Energy sector have an advantage due to the volumes associated with their trade, the revenue per staff also helps them set a benchmark for how much they can pay their staff relative to their competition and the potential revenue they can generate. One might argue that a company’s wage bill per staff should never be up to or more than its revenue per staff. If it is, then the company is highly unproductive and will never make a profit.

    If Nigeria security agencies do not know,e.g this civil war in Syria can be prevented.The causes of this civil war are caused by foreigners,the americans and the Turkish and Saudis Arabia are providing support,covert operation.military support to the ISIS and the other rebel groups in Syria,while Putin of Russia and Iranian and the mujahedeen are supporting president assard of Syria.The Syrian,,they had an aggrement before the civil war by all parties,if and when president assard dies,their will be a multiple political parties in syria

Africa’s largest telecoms firm, MTN, to divest from its Middle East operations

MTN $2 billion tax case

Africa’s largest telecoms firm, the MTN Group, has announced its plans to exit the Middle East. This is part of the wireless carrier’s strategic plan to shift focus entirely to its home continent, Africa.

The mobile operator said that as part of its medium-term strategy, it will be leaving the Middle East, starting with the sales of its 75% stake in MTN Syria. Overly reduced revenue from war-torn Syria and the complex nature of the operating environment in the country are part of the reasons MTN is divesting.

MTN’s Chief Executive Officer, Rob Shuter, noted during a conference call with reporters, that “the Middle East environment is becoming increasingly complex and it contributes less to the group’s earnings.’’

Shuter disclosed that the disposals in the Middle East region will be done in a phased manner, with its 3 consolidated subsidiaries in Yemen, Afghanistan, and Syria earmarked to be sold first. These markets only contribute about 4% to the group’s earnings before interest, depreciation, taxation, and amortization.
