Abstract

Abstract Top management, finance executives and city institutions use a variety of financial techniques to gauge the strength of companies and the effectiveness of corporate strategies. By examining the accounts of the top 160 U.K. companies, this article sets out to show how added value analysis provides a simple and convinient means of considerably augmenting these techniques, and which highlights many of the subtle strategic problems that companies face over the long term. Aspects such as productivity, capital investment, make or buy decisions, market share and profit strategies are also highlighted.
