Return on total net assets


Return on total assets is a ratio that evaluates company’s operating profit (EBIT) against total net assets. This ratio is a part of ratios that shows how efficiently the assets are being used. Data for this ratio is collected from the balance sheet (total net assets) and income statement (operating profit).
