Market share is the percentage of an industry’s total sales that is earned by one company. Market share is calculated by **dividing the company’s total revenues by the total sales of the whole industry during a specific period of time**.

Market share is **the percentage of the total revenue or sales in a market that a company’s business makes up**. For example, if there are 50,000 units sold per year in a given industry, a company whose sales were 5,000 of those units would have a 10 percent share in that market.

## How is CAGR calculated?

**To calculate the CAGR of an investment:**

- Divide the value of an investment at the end of the period by its value at the beginning of that period.
- Raise the result to an exponent of one divided by the number of years.

Divide the number of issued shares by the number of authorized shares, **and then multiply by 100** to convert to a percentage.
