4-1 Lecture 4: Measuring Corporate Performance

4-2 Corporate Performance Calculations: Financial Ratios Underlying Data: Corporate Financials & Market Values

4-3 Corporate Performance Market Value Add Book Rates of Return Economic Value Add Corporate Performance Measured Market Value Add: Market capitalization minus book value of equity. Economic Value Add: Operating income minus a charge for the cost of capital employed. Also called residual income. Book Rates of Return: Measure the firm’s profits per dollar of assets. Also known as accounting rates of return because they are based on accounting information (specifically company financials). Three common measures are the return on capital (ROC), the return on equity (ROE), and the return on assets (ROA).

4-4 Market Value Added What is it? Why is it useful? Defined: Market Capitalization —Total market value of equity, equal to share price times the number of shares outstanding Market Value Added —Market Capitalization – Book Value of Equity

4-5 MVA: Discussion Consider AT&T and Home Depot Similar MVA, Different Market-to-Book Ratio  Limitations of MVA: 1. Market value reflects investors’ expectations about future performance, complete with the imprecisions that come with all forecasting. 2. Market value fluctuates frequently due to reasons outside of the financial managers control. 3. Privately owned corporations do not have a public market value. TABLE 4.3

4-6 Economic Value Added Economic Value Added = Operating Income minus the product of cost of capital and total capitalization Operating Income = Net Income + After-tax Interest Cost of Capital = The minimum acceptable rate of return on capital investment Total Capitalization = Total Long-term Capital = Equity + Bonds + other Long-term capital [all capital committed by debt and equity investors] Defined:

4-7 EVA: Discussion Consider Coca-Cola and Google Similar EVA, Different Return on Capital Why? TABLE 4.4 * Operating Income = Net Income + After-tax Interest; ROC = Return on Capital

4-8 Book Rates of Return* *Book Rates of Return are also referred to as Accounting rates of Return Book Rates of Return = Accounting Rates of Return = Measures of the firm’s profits per dollar of assets. Return on Capital = (after-tax operating income)/(total capitalization) Return on Assets = (after-tax operating income)/(average total assets) or = (after-tax operating income)/(start of year total assets) Return on Equity = (net income)/(average equity) or = (net income)/(start of year equity) Average Assets = (end of period assets + beginning of period assets)/2 Average Equity = (end of period equity + beginning of period equity)/2

4-12 Financial Ratios and Shareholder Value Shareholder Value Investment Decisions Efficiency Ratios Profitability Ratios Financing Decisions Leverage Ratios Liquidity Ratios Shareholder value depends on good investment and financing decisions. Financial Ratios help measure the success and soundness of these decisions.

4-13 Efficiency Ratios OR* How does this ratio measure efficiency? * Either equation is a legitimate way to calculate the asset turnover ratio Efficiency Ratios – Ratios which measure how efficiently a firm uses its assets.

4-16 Profitability Ratios How does this ratio measure the firm’s profitability? When is this ratio potentially more useful than just profit margin? Note: ROC, ROA, ROE and EVA are also typically considered profitability ratios.

4-18 Leverage Ratios How does this ratio measure leverage?

4-19 Measuring Leverage How does this ratio measure leverage?

4-20 Calculating a Leverage Ratio Lowe’s Balance Sheet (in \$m) Lowe’s Times Interest Earned Ratio COGS stands for Cost of Goods Sold. Expenses include selling, general and administrative costs (and “store operating costs” in this example).

4-21 Measuring Liquidity How does this ratio measure liquidity? Liquidity Ratios– Ratios which measure the extent to which the firm has sufficient liquidity in the coming year. Net Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities

4-22 Liquidity Ratios How does this ratio differ form the current ratio? Why might a financial manager prefer it? How does this ratio differ from the current ratio? Why might a financial manager prefer it?

4-24 The DuPont System DuPont System: A breakdown of ROE and ROA into component ratios

4-25 The DuPont System: ROA Asset Turnover Operating Profit Margin

4-26 ROA Decomposition by Industry

4-27 The DuPont System: ROE Leverage Ratio Asset Turnover Operating Profit Margin Debt Burden The last ratio in the DuPont breakdown of ROE is a measure of the firm’s debt burden. The denominator represents free cash flow (Cash available for distribution to investors after the company has paid for any new capital investment or additions to working capital.). If the ratio is close to zero, the firm has a heavy debt burden—much of its free cash flow goes to interest payments.
