Return On Equity Example

A return on equity example – Melanie, after seeing success in her corporate career, has left the comfortable life to become an angel investor. She has worked diligently to select companies and their managers, hold these managers accountable to their promises, provide advice and mentoring, and lead her partners to capitalization while minimizing risk. At this stage, Melanie is ready to receive her pay-out. As a result, Melanie wants to know her Return on Equity ratio for one of her client companies.
So, Melanie begins by finding the net income and average shareholder’s equity for the venture. Looking back to her records, Melanie has invested $20,000 in the business. Her net income from it is $6,000 per year. Performing her return on equity analysis yields the following results:

Return on equity: $6,000 / $20,000 =30%

Melanie is happy with her results. Purposefully starting small, she has built the experience and confidence to be successful. She can now move on to bigger and better deals.
