The DuPont Formula Net income = net income x sales x assets equity sales assets equity ROE = ROS x ATO x EM ROE can be “decomposed” into three parts: – Return on Sales, the story of profit margins – Asset Turnover, the story of operating efficiency – Financial Leverage, the use of debt to finance activities Often, the DuPont Identity is described as ROE = ROA (net income/assets) x EM (assets/equity) The decomposition into three parts is generally more revealing.
