Nurturing world-class talent brings Infosys handsome gains

Infosys’ Economic Value Added (EVA®) grew 55.9% in Fiscal 2009, according to the company’s Annual Report 2008-09. Infosys based its brand valuation on ‘Valuation of Trademarks and Brand Names’ by Michael Birkin in ‘Brand Valuation’.

Economic Value Added (EVA®) is a performance metric developed by Stern Stewart & Co. that measures all operating and financing costs of running a business. It is a measure of economic profit that is most closely aligned with the creation of shareholder value.

Business-standard.com uses the annual report as a base to report on the human capital of Infosys and its potential to realize future earnings for the company. It highlights how the ‘Lev & Schwartz’ model was used in the Annual Report to value each Infosys employee at Rs. 97 lakhs.
