This is the Compounded Annual Growth Rate. If a company had Sales of $10 million in 2000 and $25 million in 2004, one could say that Sales grew by a 150% or they could say it grew at a CAGR of 25.7% which is 25.7% a year for 4 years. The equation is (End Amount/Beg Amount)^(1/Years)-1 or (25/10)^(1/4)-1.
