Economic Value Added (EVA)

A method used to measure a firm's true profitability.  EVA is found by taking the firm's after-tax operating profit and subtracting the annual cost of all the capital a firm uses.  If the firm generates a positive EVA, its management has created value for its shareholders.  If the EVA is negative, management has destroyed shareholder value.
