What data do you provide?

EVA is an established standard in measuring, analyzing, projecting, valuing, and discounting a firm’s underlying economic profit rather than its accounting profit. 

Economic Value Add (“EVA”) converts accounting profit to economic profit by reversing accounting distortions and measuring the dollar value profit after all costs, including the cost of giving shareholders a fair return on invested capital.

With coverage of approximately 16,500 public companies, this solution enables investors to measure, analyze, and value corporate performance and inform investing decisions. ISS EVA allows investors to parse through thousands of companies globally with comparable accounting adjustments to drive informed investment decision making on a systematic basis. 

Where and how do you source your data?

EVA data is typically derived from company filings, as well as ongoing event-driven data updates as reflected in public disclosure, press releases and company web sites.  In addition, EVA subscribes to a number of critical, paid data services that is also factored into the EVA analysis.
