French term or phrase: [gain de] marge escompté
As a result of the reorganization of a brand portfolio, combining two brands first under co-branding and then bringing one fully under the label of the other:

"Le gain de marge escompté entre 2004 et 2005 s'élève à M€ 0,4 (M€ 1,5 entre 2005 et 2009) sur l'ensemble des produits "X", "Y" et nouveaux produits.

literally, this looks like "discounted margin" but that doesn't feel right here.

Any ideas?

This particular job uses escompte in many instances - usually referring to discounting, so my tired brain automatically sought a similar connection here! Thanks for quickly setting me straight! Cheers!
