What is Return On Net Assets. Description

RONA or Return On Net Assets is equal to Net Operating Profit After Tax divided by: cash plus the working capital requirement plus the fixed assets. A strong virtue of using RONA compared to traditional methods for measuring company success is that RONA also considers the assets which a company uses to achieve its output.


Return On Net Assets compared with EVA

Return on Net Assets is similar to EVA [EVA = (RONA-WACC) x invested capital].


However using RONA instead of EVA is generally not recommended. The reason for this is that managers might bypass value-creating activities, because that might reduce RONA. A risk if RONA is greater than WACC. Or they might undertake value-destroying activities because that would increase RONA. If RONA is less than WACC.


Although RONA does not explicitly measure capital charges, it does remind managers that there is a cost to acquiring and holding assets. But ultimately, maximizing of EVA should rather be seen as the key to financial success than maximizing of RONA.
