ROE - Return on Equity

1009_ROE – Return on Equity.png


The average of the industry ROE was 21.38% for 2004, 24.99% for 2005, and 23.56% for 2006. The chart showed that after the acquisition of IBM PC division, Lenovo's ROE dropped from 22% to 2%. The investors would not be happy to see that. But consider that the new formed company, investors would be patient for them to get back with large ROE. Lenovo's ROE has been up from 2005 to 2006, but it was still below industry average. It tells everybody that Lenovo needs to generate more profit to satisfy investors. The major problem here is how to get rid of debt and reduce costs in order to gain more profit. (See Exhibit ratios)
