Year-Over-Year (YOY) refers to comparing measurable events on a yearly basis. YOY performance demonstrates if a business’s financials are increasing, decreasing or remaining static. Typically businesses compare their quarterly earnings or sales YOY to see growth or the lack thereof.


You may see that a business is reporting that its revenues increased during the second quarter, on a YOY basis, for the last three years.
