In this section, you will learn about less commonly used financial statements such as the Statement of Equity and the Free Cash Flow Statement (which is different from The Statement of Cash Flows) and their uses in finance. It also explains the difference between economic value and market value.
MVA = PV (EVAs); MVA is the difference between current market value and investors' capital., and EVA is an estimate of a firm's economic profit.
Explain the importance of a business's Market Value Added.
Calculate a business's EVA.
- Market Value Added (MVA) is the difference between the current market value of a firm and the capital contributed by investors.
- Economic Value Added or EVA, is an estimate of a firm's economic profit – being the value created in excess of the required return of the company's investors (being shareholders and debt holders).
- The firm's market value added, or MVA, is the discounted sum (present value) of all future expected economic value added: MVA = Present Value of a series of EVA values.
NOPAT (net operating profit after tax) is profits derived from a company's 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 return to those who provide capital to the firm.
Market Value Added
Market Value Added (MVA) is the difference between the current market value of a firm and the capital contributed by investors.
If the MVA is positive, the firm has added value. If it is negative, the firm has diminished value. The amount of value added needs to be greater than the firm's investors could have achieved investing in the market portfolio, adjusted for the leverage (beta coefficient) of the firm relative to the market. The formula for MVA is:
MVA = V - K
Calculation of MVA: where: MVA is market value added, V is the market value of the firm, including the value of the firm's equity and debt, and K is the capital invested in the firm.
Economic Value Added
In corporate finance, Economic Value Added or EVA, is an estimate of a firm's economic profit – being the value created in excess of the required return of the company's investors (being shareholders and debt holders). 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 product of the cost of capital and the economic capital.
The basic formula is: EVA = (r - c) * K = NOPAT - c * K
where r is the return on investment capital (ROIC); c is the weighted average of cost of capital (WACC); K is the economic capital employed; NOPAT is the net operating profit after tax.
The firm's market value added, or MVA, is the discounted sum (present value) of all future expected economic value added: MVA = Present Value of a series of EVA values.
MVA and EVA: MVA is the present value of a series of EVA values.
More enlightening is that, since MVA = NPV of Free cash flow (FCF) it follows, therefore, that the NPV of FCF = PV of EVA since after all, EVA is simply the re-arrangement of the FCF formula.
