Cost and taxes could be low compared to sales and thus the 25% increase doesn't bother us much and we get to keep most of the 5% increase in sales. Or cost and taxes are high and thus the 25% increase is more than the increase in sales.

So we can't even say, whether profits are growing or shrinking.
