Using the Information in the Financial Statements Two important ratios come from partial balance sheet: return on equity ratio and book value per share Return on Equity Return on equity also known as return on investment. Ratio measures how many dollars are earned for each dollar invested by shareholders. Net Income / Average Shareholders’ Equity = Return on Equity (%) Book Value Per Share Represents the equity a common shareholder has in the net assets of the corporation from owning one share. Net assets (assets less liabilities) of a corporation equal total shareholders’ equity. Formula for when company has one class of shares: Total Shareholders’ Equity / No. Common shares = Book Value per share Since preferred shareholders have first claim on net assets, their equity must be deducted from total shareholders’ equity to calculate equity that applies to common shares. Includes following steps: 1. Calculate the preferred shareholders’ equity . The equity is equal to the sum of legal capital of the preferred shares plus any dividends in arrears. 2. Determine shareholders’ equity . Subtract preferred shareholders’ equity from total shareholders’ equity. 3. Determine book value per common share . Divide common shareholders’ equity by the number of common shares. The book value per preferred share is calculated by dividing the preferred shareholders’ equity by number of preferred shares.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
