How Adweek calculates three-year growth
[(2020 revenue - 2018 revenue) / 2018 revenue] x 100 = total growth percentage
For example, if 2020 revenue was $20 million and 2018 revenue was $8 million
$20 million - $8 million = $12 million
$12 million / $8 million = 1.5
1.5 x 100 = 150
Growth rate is 150 percent
