Quite simply, EVA is the profit earned by the firm less the cost of financing the firm's capital. The idea is that value is . created when the return on the firm's economic capital employed is greater than the cost of that capital. EVA is net operating profit after taxes (or NOPAT) less a capital charge, the latter being the rating ) product of the cost of capital and the economic capital. The basic formula is:

where:

, is the Return on Invested Capital (ROIC); is the weighted average cost of capital (WACC); is the economic capital employed; NOPAT is the net operating profit after tax, with adjustments and translations, generally for the amortization of goodwill, the capitalization of brand advertising and others non-cash non items. NOPAT is profits derived from a companys operations after cash taxes but before financing costs and non-cash bookkeeping entries. It is the total pool of profits available to provide a cash cash return to those who provide capital to the firm. de Capital is the amount of cash invested in the business, net of depreciation. It can be calculated as the sum of interest-bearing debt and equity or as the sum of net assets less non interest-bearing bearing non-interest current liabilities (NIBCLs). EVA is the relevant yardstick for measuring economic profits. EVA is the companys net operating profit after tax, after deducting the cost of capital. Companies, which earn returns higher than the cost of capital, create wealth for the shareholders and on the other hand companies earning returns lower than the cost of capital, destroy shareholders wealth.

This is the absolute data on the cash flow and reported net profit. As we can see the cash and cash equivalents have shown a change in the positive direction over the years but it has shown a decline in the last 2 years. Ironically, the net profits have not declined; in fact, they have been rising. This shows that it is not necessary that cash flows must be increasing with increase in net profits. A contrary situation is perfectly possible. There may be various reasons for such kind of a situation. There is an observable increase in the net cash used in investing activities: After March 2008, purchase of fixed assets has shown an increase from 703 crore to 1730 crore. Before 2008 it was more or less constant at this level, now it is constant at the new level. 2011 has also seen a loss of 360 crore in the investment in subsidiaries. There is an obvious use of cash here which does not alter the profits. More dividends have been paid: The payment of dividend has seen an increase, under the heading net cash used in financing activities of about 200 crore in 2010 and about 350 crore in 2011. There is obviously an outflow in cash here which does not influence profits.

These were the main reasons why the company showed a decline in cash despite of increase in net profits over the years, especially recently.

CASH INCREASE PROFITS INCREASE ++ These companies are in a good financial condition. DECREASE +The company is not earning profit from the cash invested in the business. It probably needs to diversify in other business. DECREASE -+ The companys C to C cycle is not able to produce cash despite earning profits. -These companies are in a bad financial condition. Company needs a restructuring of its business.

Cash flow for BHEL falls in the 2nd quadrant as its profits are constantly rising but the cash inflow has shown a considerable decline in recent times. Though the declines are decreasing, it can be hoped that the company will again begin to show positive cash inflows. Most of the cash outflow has been due to the dividends paid and the cash used in investing activities that will yield results in the long run. Thus, cash decline is not a cause of big worry for the company as of now.

1) Debt-Equity Ratio:

Debt-Equity ratio is a measure of a company's financial leverage calculated by dividing its total liabilities by stockholders' equity. It indicates what proportion of equity and debt the company is using to finance its assets.

Debt-Equity ratio=

A high debt/equity ratio generally means that a company has been aggressive in financing its growth with debt, which may lead to volatile earnings as a result of the additional interest expense. A high debt to equity ratio helps a company generate more earnings than it would have without this outside financing. If the earnings increase by a greater amount than the debt cost, then the shareholders benefit as more earnings are being spread among the same amount of shareholders. However, the cost of this debt financing may outweigh the return that the company generates on the debt through investment and business activities and become too much for the company to handle. This can lead to bankruptcy, which would leave shareholders with nothing. The debt/equity ratio also depends on the industry in which the company operates.

Debt-Equity ratio from Mar 10 to Mar 02:

Debt/Equity
0.25 0.2 0.15 0.1 0.05 0

As we can see from the graph, the debt-equity ratio gradually decreases across the years and has become constant at a low value of 0.01. This is a positive indication to the shareholders and attracts new

shareholders as the value of debt for the company has decreased from a higher value of 0.2 to a quite lower value of 0.01. The debt-equity ratio is decreasing with year due to increase in the Governments grants as these are Government owned entities and moreover, their profits have been increasing with these years. So, debts have been decreasing in comparison to equities. 2) Long-term Debt-Equity Ratio:

Long term debt-equity ratio is quite similar to the debt-equity ratio. But, in place of total liabilities, only long term debts are considered. It refers to money the company owes that it does not expect to pay off in the next year. Long term debt consists of things such as mortgages on corporate buildings, land, business loans etc. A great sign of prosperity is when the balance sheet shows the amount of long term debt has been decreasing for one or more years. When debt shrinks and cash increases, the balance sheet is said to be improving. When its the other way around, it is said to be deteriorating. Companies with too much long term debt will find themselves overwhelmed with interest payments, a risk of having too little working capital and ultimately, bankruptcy.

Long term Debt/Equity


0.14 0.12 0.1 0.08 0.06 0.04 0.02 0

As seen from the graph Long term debt-equity ratio also decreases due to increased Governments grants.

3) Current Ratio: Current Ratio is a liquidity ratio that measures a companys ability to pay short term obligations. Current Ratio =

This ratio is used to give an idea of the companys ability to pay back its short term liabilities(debt and payables) with its short term assets(cash, inventory and receivables). The higher the ratio, the more capable the company is payable of its obligations. A ratio under 1 suggests that the company would be unable to pay off its obligations if they came due at that point. While this shows the company is not in good financial health, it does not necessarily mean that it will go bankrupt - as there are many ways to access financing - but it is definitely not a good sign.

The current ratio can give a sense of the efficiency of a company's operating cycle or its ability to turn its product into cash. Companies that have trouble getting paid on their receivables or have long inventory turnover can run into liquidity problems because they are unable to alleviate their obligations. Because business operations differ in each industry, it is always more useful to compare companies within the same industry.

This ratio is similar to the acid-test ratio except that the acid-test ratio does not include inventory and prepaid as assets that can be liquidated. The components of current ratio (current assets and current liabilities) can be used to derive working capital (difference between current assets and current liabilities). Working capital is frequently used to derive the working capital ratio, which is working capital as a ratio of sales.

Current ratio
1.8 1.6 1.4 1.2 1 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0

Current Ratio is decreasing due to increase in current assets and decrease in current liabilities of the company. This is due to increase in the Governments grants over the decade. 4) Fixed Asset Turnover Ratio: A financial ratio of net sales to fixed assets. The fixed-asset turnover ratio measures a company's ability to generate net sales from fixed-asset investments - specifically property, plant and equipment (PP&E) net of depreciation. A higher fixed-asset turnover ratio shows that the company has been more effective in using the investment in fixed assets to generate revenues.

The fixed-asset turnover ratio is calculated as:

Fixed Asset turnover ratio=

This ratio is often used as a measure in manufacturing industries, where major purchases are made for PP&E to help increase output. When companies make these large purchases, prudent investors watch this ratio in following years to see how effective the investment in the fixed assets was.

Fixed Asset Turnover Ratio

Fixed asset turnover ratio has been constantly increasing over the decade as there has not been a constant increase in the infrastructure of the company as compared to the sales of the company. This attracts the shareholders in investing in the company. But, the company does not need much investment being a PSU.

5) Inventory Turnover Ratio: Inventory turnover ratio is a ratio showing how many times a company's inventory is sold and replaced over a period. Inventory Turnover ratio= Inventory turnover ratio= To calculate Inventory Turnover Days, the days in the period is divided by the inventory turnover formula to calculate the days it takes to sell the inventory on hand. Although the first calculation is more frequently used, COGS (cost of goods sold) may be substituted because sales are recorded at market value, while inventories are usually recorded at cost. Also, average inventory may be used instead of the ending inventory level to minimize seasonal factors. This ratio should be compared against industry averages. A low turnover implies poor sales and, therefore, excess inventory. A high ratio implies either strong sales or ineffective buying. High inventory levels are unhealthy because they represent an investment with a rate of return of 0. It also opens the company up to trouble should prices begin to fall. . Alternatively, it can be calculated as,

Inventory Turnover ratio


6 5 4 3 2 1 0

Inventory turnover ratio increases till the year 2007 and then decreases. It increases due to increase in costs of the goods sold and increased demands. After 2007, inventory turnover ratio decreases. This is due to decreases in cost of goods sold as compared to inventory because the industry was hit by recession at that period. Hence, costs of goods sold have reduced due to a decrease in demand. This dip in the cost of goods sold continues till the year 2010. It increases from the year 2011 corresponding to increase in the goods Margins 1) Profit before Interest Depreciation Taxes Margin and a corresponding increase in demand or reduced inventory.

PBIDTM (%)
25 20 15 10 5 0 PBIDTM (%)

A measurement of a company's operating profitability. It is equal to profit before interest, tax, depreciation (PBITD) divided by total revenue. Because PBITD excludes depreciation and interest, PBITD margin can provide an investor with a cleaner view of a company's core profitability. The PBIDT margin was increasing from the year 2002 to the year 2008.There was a dip in the PBIDTM in the year 2008-2009.Since then PBIDTM has been increasing from the year 2009 to the year 2011. A similar trend is followed by PBDTM. Generally, a higher value is appreciated for these ratios as that would indicate that the company is able to keep its earnings at a good level via efficient processes that have kept certain expenses low. The increase in PBIDTM and PBDTM can be attributed to increase in turnover coupled with savings in material cost over previous year and this has contributed to the better financial performance during the year. 2) Profit Before Depreciation and Taxes Margin

PBDTM (%)

The PBDT margin was increasing from the year 2002 to the year 2008.There was a dip in the PBDTM in the year 2008-2009.Since then PBDTM has been increasing from the year 2009 to the year 2011. 3) Profit Before Interest and Tax Margin

PBITM (%)
25 20 15 10 5 0 PBITM (%)

The PBIT margin was increasing from the year 2002 to the year 2008.There was a dip in the PBDTM in the year 2008-2009.Since then PBDTM has been increasing from the year 2009 to the year 2011. There has been a change in accounting policy. The method of calculating the % completion has been modified to remove the mismatch in recognition of revenue and creation of provision for contractual obligation at 2.5% of the contract revenue on completion of trial operation and also to ensure that only 2.5% of the contract revenue is recognized on completion of trial operation with corresponding provision for contractual obligation. This was necessitated as the company observed the provisioning for contractual obligation made ranged between 1% to 5% from project to project and this anomaly was corrected. Since the % completion is done on estimated cost the variation between estimate and actual has been written back actually. And this has resulted in increase in STO for the quarter to the tune of Rs 444 crore. The impact at PBT and PAT level was Rs 88 crore and Rs 60 crore respectively. This is a one off item and as this anomaly was corrected there will be no future impact/occurrence. Industrial sector is expanding. The demand for the products has gone up. The company sees the unit size are increasing, the players who were earlier ordering for 60 MW are ordering 150 MW sets and who earlier went for 150 MW sets moves up to 250 MW sets. The demand for compressor and motors are also picking up. The high voltage transmission product ordering is happening. Transportation is another growth area where the company has picked up impressive orders from railways and private sector recently. This increase in demand has attributed to the increased sales turnover. 4) Cash Profit Margin

CPM (%)
16 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 CPM (%)

Cash profit margin ratio is used to measure operating performance. A higher cash profit margin is desirable. Here we can observe that CPM is increasing from the year 2009-2011.This can be attributed to increased PAT over the period due improved industry condition and increased sales turnover for BHEL. Formula: (Profit after Tax+ Depreciation)/Gross Sales So these are the very important concept for fundamental analysis.

5) Return on Capital Employed (ROCE)

ROCE (%)
60 50 40 30 20 10 0 ROCE (%)

ROCE reflects a companys ability to earn a return on all of the capital that the company employs .ROCE is calculated by determining what percentage of a companys utilized capital it made in pre-tax profits,before borrowing costs. The companys ROCE increases from year 2002 to 2008 and there is a decrease in the year 2008.ROCE again increases from year 2009-2011.There is an increased ROCE which shows that BHEL has utilized its capital employed in a more efficient way.The prime objective of making investments in any business is to obtain satisfactory return on capital invested. Hence, the return on capital employed is used as a measure of success of a business in realizing this objective. It is the best measure of profitability in order to assess the overall performance of the business. It indicates how well the management has used the investment made by owners and creditors into the business.

ROCE should always be higher than the rate at which the company borrows; otherwise any increase in borrowing will reduce shareholders' earnings. ROCE tells us how much profit we earn from the investments the shareholders have made in their company. A negative ROCE would mean that the firm had made a loss. ROCEs are typically between 5% and 15%. This will depend on the sector in which the firm operates. 6) Return on Net worth (RONW)

RONW (%)
35 30 25 20 15 10 5 0

RONW (%)

The amount of net income returned as a percentage of shareholders equity. Return on equity measures a corporation's profitability by revealing how much profit a company generates with the money shareholders have invested.

ROE is expressed as a percentage and calculated as: Return on Equity = Net Income/Shareholder's Equity

Net income is for the full fiscal year (before dividends paid to common stock holders but after dividends to preferred stock.) Shareholder's equity does not include preferred shares. Also known as "return on net worth" (RONW). The ROE is useful for comparing the profitability of a company to that of other firms in the same industry. There are several variations on the formula that investors may use:

1. Investors wishing to see the return on common equity may modify the formula above by subtracting preferred dividends from net income and subtracting preferred equity from shareholders' equity, giving the following: return on common equity (ROCE) = net income - preferred dividends / common equity.

2. Return on equity may also be calculated by dividing net income by average shareholders' equity. Average shareholders' equity is calculated by adding the shareholders' equity at the beginning of a period to the shareholders' equity at period's end and dividing the result by two.

3. Investors may also calculate the change in ROE for a period by first using the shareholders' equity figure from the beginning of a period as a denominator to determine the beginning ROE. Then, the endof-period shareholders' equity can be used as the denominator to determine the ending ROE. Calculating both beginning and ending ROEs allows an investor to determine the change in profitability over the period. This gives a continuously increasing trend from year 2003 to year 2007 and then we observe that there is a decreasing trend from year 2008-2009.We can again observe an increasing trend from 2009-2011.This ratio gives you an idea of the returns generated by investing in the company. While ROCE is an effective measure to get a general overview of the profitability of the company's business operations, RONW lets you gauge the returns you can earn on your investment. This ratio indicates the return on stockholder's total equity. RONW/ROE is the single most important financial ratio applying to stockholders and the best measure of performance by a firm's management.

A high return on equity indicates that the company is spending wisely and is likely profitable; a low return on equity indicates the opposite. As a result, high returns on equity lead to higher stock prices. A negative RONW would mean that the firm had negative earning. After Tax Profit Margin

A financial performance ratio, calculated by dividing net income after taxes by net sales. A company's after-tax profit margin is important because it tells investors the percentage of money a company actually earns per rupee of sales. This ratio is interpreted in the same way as profit margin - the after-tax profit margin is simply more stringent because it takes taxes into account.

Often, a company's earnings don't tell the entire story. The amount of profit can increase, but that doesn't mean the company's profit margin is improving. For example, a company's sales could increase, but if costs also rise, that leads to a lower profit margin than what the company had when it had lower profits. This is an indication that the company needs to better control its costs.

APATM (%)
16 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 APATM (%)

Here we observe that the APATM has decreased in the year 2008-2009 and has increased over 20092011.The decrease can be attributed to economic slowdown and decrease in the revenues earned and also a decrease in demand for heavy electrical products. Du Pont Analysis: BHEL showed the following trends in the important parameters governing the Du Pont Chart analysis: 1. Profit margin: Profit margin is given by the formula

In this analysis this term has been calculated by dividing it further into two terms:

The following graphs show the variation for the two relevant terms for the last 10 fiscals. ow

PBIDT/Sales(%)
25 20 15 10 5 0

The ratio PBDIT/Sales gives the operating efficiency of the firm. The difference between PAT and PBDIT arises due to the fixed rates of depreciation and taxes that have to be taken into account. As the into following graph shows, this ratio basically has stayed more or less constant over the last 10 years. There is a clearly apparent upward trend in the ratio over the last 10 years, apart from the dip in 2009, which can be attributed to the economic downturn that the world witnessed in 2008.

The ratio is a measure of operating efficiency of the company, and an increasing trend shows that that as far as operations are concerned, it is moving in the right direction.

2. Asset turnover ratio: The asset turnover ratio is given by the formula:

Asset turnover ratio of the engineering services industry is typically low, since the products that it manufactures usually earn it a large profit margin. BHEL possesses Asset turnover in the range of

1.5-2, and the trend is on the increase. However, this ratio is not of great importance to this 2, industry which is not a sales sales-dominant industry.

Sales/Net Assets

3. Financial Leverage ratio:

The formula for financial leverage ratio is given by:

This ratio is also not of so great an importance to the Engineering sevices industry, and as such this ratio is consistently low for BHEL. This ratio is generally high for finalcial services industries. However, a high financial leverage ratio is considered risky for other industries, and tries. BHELs present value is tagged at 1.01.

Net Assets/Net Worth


1 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0

4. Return on Equity: ROE (Return on Equity) is arguably the most important ratio to the shareholders and investors for determining a companys financial position. It is the most important indicator of shareholder etermining value creation. Return on equity reveals how much profit a company earned in comparison to the total amount of shareholder equity found on the balance sheet. Shareholder equity is a creation of Shareholder accounting that represents the assets created by the retained earnings of the business and the paid paidin capital of the owners. A business that has a high return on equity is more likely to be one that is capable of generating cash internally. For the most part, the higher a company's return on equity compared to its industry, the better.

ROE(%)
35 30 25 20 15 10 5 0

As the graph clearly shows, the ROE trend is favorable for BHEL in the last decade. It has steadily grown from 13% in 2002 to 33% in 2011. The growth in ROE has been majorly contributed to the impressive CAGR that BHEL has mentioned during the decade. As the Du Pont Analysis suggests, the major factor the is the growing profit margin of the company, which is basically an indicator of increasing operational efficiency of the company.
