This analysis technique is called the "DuPont Formula". The first is: Return on equity (ROE) = net income / total equity If we multiply ROE by sales. we get: Return on equity = (net income / sales) * (sales / total equity) Said differently: ROE = net profit margin * return on equity The second is: Return on equity (ROE) = net income / total equity If in a second instance we multiply ROE by assets.
