Financial Measures of Performance  From a shareholder perspective, ROE (return on equity) is the main measure of a firm’s performance  ROA (return on assets) measures the return earned on each dollar invested by the firm in assets o Can be written as the product of 2 ratios—profit margin and asset turnover o Most important when measuring supply chain management  An important ratio that defines financial leverage is accounts payable turnover (APT) o COGS/Accts. Payable o Key components of asset turnover are accts receivable turnover, inventory turnover, and property, plant, and equipment turnover  Inventory turnover is most important for logistics o COGS/Inventories o How fast you’re rotating your inventory o Want high inventory turnover  Cash-to-cash cycle roughly measures the average amount of time from when cash enters the process as cost to when it returns as collected revenue o C2C = - Weeks Payable (1/APT) + Weeks in Inventory (1/INVT) + Weeks Receivable (1/ART) o Measures from the moment you make a payment to a supplier, to the time you sell to a customer (the moment you pay cash, to the moment you receive cash) o A lack of cash leads to bankruptcy  Must benchmark your ratios with companies in the same industry  2 measures not part of financial statements: o Markdowns: discounts required to convince customers to buy excess inventory o Lost sales: represent customer sales that did not materialize because of the absence of products the customer wanted to buy  Can only forecast what lost sales might be if inventory is waiting to be replenished II.
