EVA at Ault Foods Limited
(7 pages of text)
The chief financial officer of Ault Food Limited was compiling the data he would need to run a divisional Economic Value Added (EVA) analysis. He had been asked by the CEO of Ault Foods to present the analysis at the next meeting of the board of directors. The CEO must persuade the board that divesting at least one of the company's divisions will be in the best interest of Ault's shareholders. The case is intended to provide an introduction to the use of EVA in a multi-business setting. Having completed the case, students should have a basic understanding of the EVA concept and its usefulness as a performance indicator, be capable of making EVA adjustments and calculating actual EVA measures, and have a good conceptual grasp of the application of EVA as both an internal control device and an aid to strategic decision making.
