1 1 Financial Analysis Using Ratios

2 2 Agenda Ratio analysis and EVA Briggs case Cash flow statement analysis Free cash flow

3 Four Analysis Categories Evaluate performance relative to a peer group, and period-over-period, to identify strengths and weaknesses in four areas  Profitability  Asset management  Solvency risk  Economic Value-added 3

4 Key Uses of Ratio Analysis Consider impact of financial performance on cash flow and stock price  Measure value-added Set targets for projected performance to improve valuation Assist in formulating a cash flow planning forecast 4

Operating performance?

7 7 Traditional DuPont Model Return on Equity Return on Assets Margins On Sales Asset Utilization Financial Leverage x=x

8 8 Profitability summary using the Dupont Model ROE = Return on Equity: rate of return to stockholders NPM = Net Profit Margin: efficiency in expense control (income statement) TAT = Total Asset turnover: asset management (balance sheet) LR = Leverage Ratio (‘financial leverage’; tradeoff is insolvency risk) ROENPMTATLR

9 Return on Assets 9 ROAROE ROA = Return on Assets: summarizes income statement and balance sheet efficiency, before incorporating financial leverage LR

11 DuPont mixes operating and financial decisions 11 A problem with this approach is that because net income is biased by financing choice, the equation provides a poor summary of operating performance (e.g. success in product positioning, production efficiency, distribution, overhead control, etc.) Companies with high debt have low net profit margin, low ROA, but higher ROE, all else equal

12 Traditional Balance Sheet Current Assets Current Liabilities PP&E Long-term Debt Stockhoders Equity = Total Assets = Total Liab + Equity Our objective as financial managers is to enhance the value of the debt and equity capital that we’ve raised in the market, on which the investors require a rate of return. Let’s show a balance sheet that isolates this investor capital.

13 Managerial Balance Sheet + Current Assets - Oper. Current Liab. + PP&E + Debt (L.T. + S.T.) + Equity = Invested Capital Net Working Capital = Invested Capital Invested Capital can be calculated both inside and outside the box

14 Net Working Capital (NWC) NWC = Current Assets minus Operating Current Liabilities  Operating Current Liabilities grow spontaneously with the firm’s assets not motivated by a return on investment (non-interest) include Accts Payable, Accrued Expenses, Tax Payable exclude short-term interest-bearing debt that is part of current liabilities on the traditional balance sheet  This S.T. debt is now outside the box as a part of the Debt Capital

15 Invested Capital (IC) IC is raised to acquire assets inside the box IC = NWC + PP&E inside the box IC also = Debt + Equity outside the box The overall rate of return required by investors on the Invested Capital is known as the Weighted Average Cost of Capital

16 16 Net Operating Profit After Taxes +Earnings Before Interest and Taxes X(1 – cash tax rate) =NOPAT This is the after-tax income earned on the Invested Capital By using earnings before Interest to calculate NOPAT, we exclude the influence of debt funding on earnings NOPAT is the net income that would be earned if there were no debt

17 17 Return on Invested Capital Multiply both sides by: ROIC is a weighted return on Invested Capital: ROIC = ; r d =interest rate on debt

18 18 Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) ROIC intersects efficiency on the income statement with the productivity of assets on the balance sheet ROIC provides a summary measure of operating performance A financial performance analysis begins with ROIC, and drills down from there ROIC =NOPATxSales IC Net Oper. Margin x Capital Turnover

19 19 Adjusted Dupont Model (isolates operating and financial leverage effects on ROE) The second term isolates the increase in ROE resulting solely from leverage differences This term also captures the tax break on interest (1-t) that we ignored when we calculated NOPAT r d = interest rate on debt Pure leverage effect

20 20 UnleveredLevered Assets$10,000 Debt$0$5,000 Equity$10,000$5,000 # Shares Tax Rate40% Interest rate 5% UnleveredLevered PoorExpectedStrongPoorExpectStrong EBIT$-500$1,000$1,500$-500$1,000$1,500 Interest$0 $250 Taxes$-200$400$600$-300$300$500 Net Income$-300$600$900$-450$450$750 ROA-3.0%6.0%9.0%-4.5%4.5%7.5% ROE-3.0%6.0%9.0%-9.0%9.0%15.0% EPS$-0.75$1.50$2.25$-2.25$2.25$3.75 Which company performed better?

21 Adjusted Dupont Model 21 5% (1-.40) [] +x- 6%1.06%3%=9%+x- [] From an operating perspective the companies are identical, earning a 6% ROIC The levered company adds another 3% to its ROE as a result of its debt usage Ultimately the answer to which is better depends largely on which debt mix is appropriate given the industry’s operating risk (variability in EBIT)

22 22

23 23 Increasing Leverage and ROE Note that the hurdle rate for increasing ROE (same for EPS) by increasing leverage is very low:  ROIC > Int (1-T)  Returns to capital > after-tax cost of debt only  To increase value need ROIC > weighted average cost of debt and equity Cost of both debt and equity are rising as debt increases Goal should not be max ROE

24 Margin analysis Gross Margin: ability to mark-up product and control production expenses Net Operating Margin: control of overhead expenses (SG&A) as well 24

25 25 Profits Summary Start with ROIC as a summary measure of operating performance Explain ROIC results using  Margins on income statement  Capital turnovers from balance sheet Explain ROE result using ROIC and Leverage Also consider growth’s impact on value

26 Value Drivers The three keys to value are 1) ROIC; 2) growth in NOPAT; 3) Risk 26 Implied Value/NOPAT Multiples for ROIC and Growth ROIC 10.08%10%12%14%16% Growth 2% % % %

27 II. Asset Management (turnovers) Capital Turnover Accts. Receivable Days Inventory Holding Period Working Capital Turnover PP&E Turnover 27 Measure the efficiency with which the company invests in its assets (e.g. efficiency in collecting receivables, turning inventory, and utilizing PP&E capacity)

28 28

29 29 III. Solvency risk Debt-to-EBITDA Debt-to-Capital Interest Coverage  or Times Interest Earned Measure whether the company has an appropriate level of debt in its capital mix, or the risk of becoming insolvent Tradeoff: There are many considerations that drive this decision, but the primary tradeoff is that while higher debt increases insolvency risk and the cost of capital, it also can boost the return to stockholders (ROE).

31 31

32 32 III. Solvency risk: Liquidity focus Current ratio Quick ratio Measure ability to meet near-term financial obligations by holding sufficient assets that are expected to convert to cash within the year Inventory is the least liquid current asset, so exclude it in the quick ratio

33 33

34 Liquidity interactions 34 Tradeoff: By shrinking the current ratio companies can reduce Invested Capital requirements and thereby boost ROIC But a lower current ratio indicates greater liquidity risk Liquidity can also be located off the balance sheet in committed unused lines of credit Companies that have less total debt and/or have stronger cash flow can afford to have lower liquidity

35 35 IV. Economic Value Added EVA is a measure of periodic economic profit, or single period $value-added to shareholders Unlike Net Income, EVA measures residual income after deducting a charge for all of the Invested Capital used in the business (i.e. it charges for Equity capital)  Net income fails to effectively capture the cost of an inefficient balance sheet

36 EVA’s relation to value Market value added, the difference between a company’s market value and its book value, is the present value of the company’s future expected EVAs  EVA links profit measurement to valuation Net Present Value (NPV) for a new capital investment is equal to the present value of the investment’s future expected EVAs  EVA links profit measurement to capital budgeting 36

37 37 Value-based management using EVA Focus managers on controlling capital investment and beating the cost of capital  “Incredibly, most corporate groups, divisions, and departments have no idea how much capital they tie up or what it costs”— Fortune Provide appropriate incentives for value-added growth investments, while divesting value- destroying business lines Push accountability for capital charges down into profit centers at all levels of organization Optimize the use of debt to minimize WACC

38 38 Calculating EVA EVA deducts a Capital (financing) Charge for the Investment Capital used to generate NOPAT WACC = Weighted Average Cost of Capital WACC is an estimate of the % return required by investors on the firm’s Invested Capital $Capital Charge

39 39 ROIC > WACC = +EVA Investments must generate an ROIC that exceeds the cost of financing $Capital captures the firm’s ability to find profitable growth opportunities  Recall that MVA is present value of future EVA WACC captures risk The EVA spread can be compared across firms, but do not target max EVA spread %

40 40

41 41 Overinvestment problem of net income focus Only need to earn ROIC > Interest (1-T) x 50%, which here is 3.5%, to increase Net Income; need 12% for breakeven EVA; result is overinvestment Assume capital structure is 50%/50% D/E:

42 42 Should the investment be made?

43 43 EVA captures Equity cost risk effects not included in any measure of profitability, and encourages optimal capital structure Captures differences in risk and associated financing cost side of the risk/return tradeoff via WACC  seek optimal use of debt to minimize WACC  include risk shifts in profit measurement If use excessive debt to increase ROE, cost of Equity and Debt increase, resulting in higher WACC and capital charge in EVA calculation

44 44 Accounting adjustments Adjusts capital for accounting distortions that understate capital (e.g. leases, reserves on balance sheet) or discourage investment (e.g. R&D, advertising, and training expenses)
