Example text

Total net assets (the denominator) represent the sum of fixed assets (including excess and idle assets surplus to requirements, which are a drain on profit) after an allowance for depreciation, plus net current assets (the difference between current assets and current liabilities due for imminent repayment). This primary definition of corporate performance (ROCE) can then be mathematically deconstructed into two secondary ratios, which highlight the reasons for the firm’s overall profitability, namely its net profit margin and total net asset utilisation (asset turnover), as follows:  52&(  1HWSURILW  1HW3URILW[6DOHV   7RWDOQHWDVVHWV6DOHV 7RWDOQHWDVVHWV Activity 3 Explain why a high or low ROCE ratio is determined by a combination of a company’s profit margin and asset utilisation.

As a consequence, a company’s “real” market rate of return, defined by its dividend yield or earnings yield (the reciprocal of the P/E ratio) may bear no relation to any interpretation of its overall return on capital employed (ROCE) or dividend per share and earnings per share (EPS) derived from the published financial accounts. Thus, it follows logically that if a company’s ROCE is suspect (which stands at the very the apex of a pyramid of ratios), then its very foundations (the secondary and tertiary ratios) including any analysis of its working capital position must also be questioned.

This should improve overall profitability. Like any external analysis of financial ratios, however, the figures also give rise to questions rather than answers, which cannot be interpreted in isolation without access to internal (managerial) information. Two combined worst case scenarios may be that the cash balance is still $18m because creditors have imposed stricter terms of sale and debtors are also taking much longer to pay, imposing an intolerable strain on liquidity. Cash also has a variety of uses, which might not be related to an increase in sales.
