Azwimar Putranusa | YP 52B | 29114335

Return on assets (ROA) is a financial ratio that shows the percentage of
profit a company earns in relation to its overall resources. It is commonly defined
as net income divided by total assets. Net income is derived from the income
statement of the company and is the profit after taxes. The assets are read from
the balance sheet and include cash and cash-equivalent items such as
receivables, inventories, land, capital equipment as depreciated, and the value of
intellectual property such as patents. Companies that have been acquired may
also have a category called "goodwill" representing the extra money paid for the
company over and above its actual book value at the time of acquisition.
The only reason your business owns assets is to produce income. You
measure your income in relation to your assets. This is called return on assets, or
ROA. Assets like equipment directly produce products that create income,
whereas buildings contribute indirectly to income, because they house incomeproducing equipment. You must constantly find ways to reduce asset costs and
increase income to keep your ROA as high as possible.
