Return analysis

Positive leverage effect
Once a firm has debt, the final return for the shareholders consists in two parts: the return on operation and the leverage effect. In DANONE's case, we observe a positive leverage effect which is good to the firm. In order to further investigate, we break down the leverage effect as a product of two parts: D/E ratio and the differential between ROCE and cost of debt. With a decreasing and moderate D/E level and from the chart above, we can see that the positive leverage effect mainly came from the high differential between operation return and the cost of debt. Such situation was largely attributed to the low effective interest rate realized by the group. This trend is good, it is a right way to develop a healthy leverage effect. The group should keep its D/E level to maintain its low cost of debt to achieve a good leverage effect from the differential aspect.
