CFO Series: Best Practices EVA/RCE: Metrics that Speak!

Description

How much profit is enough? Answering this question requires an understanding of how much risk is being taken and what the market requires of investments of similar risk. Learn why GAAP accounting measures can lead you astray when trying to evaluate the true economic performance of an enterprise. The measurement of economic costs and revenues requires the inclusion of opportunity costs that GAAP does not measure. The seminar looks at how this required return is established and provides practical guidance regarding two state of the art techniques for measuring true economic profit.
