Basic Earning Power Ratio Calculator

The basic earning power ratio is the relationship between the earning power of a company and its assets. The higher the Earning Power Ratio, the better it is.

The formula for calculating the basic earning power ratio is:

Basic Earning Power Ratio = EBIT / Total Assets


Basic Earning Power Ratio = Operating Profit Margin * Total Assets Turnover Ratio.

We need to understand that the second formula will eventually give the same result as the first one. How? Let us have a look.

Operating Profit Margin = EBIT / Turnover

Total Assets Turnover Ratio = Turnover / Total Assets

Now putting both these formulas in the second formula of the basic earning power ratio, we will get the first formula.

Basic Earning Power Ratio = (EBIT / Turnover) * (Turnover / Total Assets)

That is, EBIT / Total Assets
