PE vs GMR [R for BE/BA]

Dear all,

some time ago almost the same question was posted on the forum, but for me this problem persist so far. My question is: does PE and GMR represent different metrics, numerically and/or statistically?

I have posted it under the R for BE/BA category because I faced with this when I performed NCA/stat analysis utilizing bear-package.

On the one hand GMR by definition is a ratio of LSM T/LSM R, or in log scale Mean(lnCmaxT) minus Mean(lnCmaxR)
On the other hand PE is a sqrt(LL*UL)

In my example for Cmax below GMR=4.097-3.971=0.126, after exponentiation =1.1343
PE=sqrt(0.98809*1.30785=1.13678, which correspond to the table data.

So the results for GMR and PE are slightly different: 1.1343 for GMR and 1.13678 for PE. But why? Is my logic somewhere wrong?

The example output data:
