The ROE is often seen as the primary measure of a company’s performance as it measures the profitability of shareholder equity by measuring how much the shareholders earned for their investment in the company and this tells common shareholders to know how effectively their money is being employed. The higher the ratio percentage, the more efficient management is in utilizing its equity base and the better return is to investors. However, the higher ROE does not necessarily mean better financial performance of the company. But rather, the higher ROE can be the result of high financial leverage, but too high financial leverage is dangerous for a company 's
How do employer priorities affect claim adjudication and management in workers’ compensation systems? A company’s main priority is to be successful, which means making profit. The global market is becoming more competitive and as a result, many businesses adopt strategies that cut costs to ensure that they do not run bankrupt. When employees injure themselves, the potential cost of injury claims impacts a company’s WCB premiums. Workers compensation boards are responsible for adjusting a company’s premium based on its injury prevention performance and not on the industry’s average.
A problem with the current ratio is that it accounts for inventory, which is not as liquid as other current asset accounts, and may lead to a disingenuous analysis. Another problem arises with this ratio because it accounts for the receivables account, which may overvalue the ratio, especially if the business

Theoretically, the business pays no marketing cost for the returning customers, the Therefore very little expense is spent on attracting new customers. As the business ages and some marketing cost decreases such as advertising, promotions and coupons then the profit margin is expected to rise (Ashe-Edmunds, 2012). Sumit K.Majumdar (1997) suggests that in India older firms are found to be more productive and less profitable whereas the larger firms are conversely found to be more profitable and less productive. These disparities, he says can be attributed to rising restrictions on industrial policies that have been followed in most countries over the last

Naturally, as demand dissipates, prices also decrease—thus the law of supply and demand. It is important for entrepreneurs to note that the laws of supply and demand work best in competitive markets. When businesses are competing with one another, they try to attract consumers by lowering prices, improving quality, and developing new products and services (Mariotti, 2000, p. 69) Government regulations, or anything else that keeps entrepreneurs from entering a market, will make the market less competitive. Less competition leads to higher prices, poorer quality, and fewer new products and services (Mariotti, 2000, p.
The attractiveness is the overall profitability of the industry whilst unattractiveness drives down profitability. Thus using this model, it implies that profitability or the return is a constant integer, across firms and industries; however various studies established that different industries have different levels of profitability due to their diverse structure and circumstances they operate in. The model can also be utilized to develop an edge over competitors and rudimentarily for identifying a niche whether it is potentially feasible to manufacture new products, services or open new
Introduction: Companies strive to improve and maximize profits in various ways. Some are successful while others are not very successful. The strategy that initially works for some companies, if not properly and effectively managed becomes their undoing. In this paper, we explain the difference between implicit and explicit costs and provided two examples of when an explicit cost is different from an implicit cost. Furthermore, this paper explores the difference between accounting and economic profit while giving two examples of when they differ.
Supply chain management as a whole has evolved over the period of time, especially in the recent decades. The entire supply chain management can be divided into two parts such as Operational and Financial.
