What are the top 3 financial metrics in any company?

There are 3 top financial metrics that are important in every company: revenue, net profit, and burn rate.

Revenue is the income generated through your business’ primary operations, often referred to as the “top line”. Net profit is the dollar value that remains after all expenses are subtracted from your company’s total income, often referred to as the “bottom line”. Net burn, or burn rate, is the amount of money a company loses per month as they burn through cash reserves.
