value added. Used as a measure of shareholder value, calculated using the formula:

The difference is profit for the firm and its shareholders after all the costs and taxes owed by the business have been paid for that financial year. Value added or any related measure may help investors decide if this a business that is worthwhile investing on, or that there are other and better opportunities (
fixed deposits, debentures).
