1.1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARYMeasures using common bases are Net Profit Margin, Operating Profit Margin, (EPS) etc. Among these, again ROI is recognized as the most popular yardstick of overall performance. But it is often argued that, in general, these traditional measures fail to identify the true surplus. Economic Value Added (EVA) is advocated as a new traditionally used profit based indicators. Traditional measures of corporate performance are many in number.

Return on Investment (ROI), Return on Net Worth (RONW), Earning Per Share

measure of corporate performance that focuses on clear surplus in contrast to the For evaluation of the efficiency of any decision, value creation or value

addition aspect is of utmost importance in the present backdrop of corporate governance. Although adopting a holistic approach safeguarding the interests of all stakeholders is being emphasized and rightly so, it should be kept in mind that value corporate policy guidelines. If that is not satisfied, wrong signals will be emitted from

creation or value addition aspect is of prime consideration in the assessment of the securities market and the continuance of the operations of the entity will be at stake. In view of the above considerations, in the present paper an attempt has been made to analyze the financial performance of ten India steel companies by using E VA and MVA. The Study is based on secondary data and covers the period of 5 years ranging from 2005-2009. A sample of 10 steel and allied companies selected on random basis among the top steel companies. To analyze the data EVA and MVA linkages between EVA and MVA From the analysis it is seen out of five years MVA technique has been used. Further regression Analysis has been used to study and EVA were negative maximum wealth was destroyed in year 2009 which was due recession all over the world which crashed the market more than 50%.6

SHAREHOLDER VALUE CREATION: AN OVERVIEWCreating shareholder value is the key to success in today's marketplace. There is increasing pressure on corporate executives to measure, manage and report the creation of shareholder value on a regular basis. In the emerging field of shareholder value analysis, various measures have been developed that claim to quantify the creation of shareholder value and wealth. More than ever, corporate executives are under increasing pressure to demonstrate on a regular basis that they are creating shareholder value. This pressure has led to an emergence of a variety of measures that claim to quantify value-creating performance. Creating value for shareholders is now a widely accepted corporate objective. The interest in value creation has been stimulated by several developments. * Capital markets are becoming increasingly global. Investors can readily shift investments to higher yielding, often foreign, opportunities. * Institutional investors, which traditionally were passive investors, have begun exerting influence on corporate managements to create value for shareholders. * Corporate governance is shifting, with owners now demanding7

accountability from corporate executives. Manifestations of the increased assertiveness of shareholders include the necessity for executives to justify their compensation levels, and well-publicized lists of under performing companies and overpaid executives. * Business press is emphasizing shareholder value creation in performance rating exercises. * Greater attention is being paid to link top management compensation to shareholder returns. Defining Shareholder Value, and Wealth Creation From the economist's viewpoint, value is created when management generates revenues over and above the economic costs to generate these revenues. Costs come from four sources: employee wages and benefits; material, supplies, and economic depreciation of physical assets; taxes; and the opportunity cost of using the capital. Under this value-based view, value is only created when revenues exceed all costs including a capital charge. This value accrues mostly to shareholders because they are the residual owners of the firm. Shareholders expect management to generate value over and above the costs of resources consumed, including the cost of using capital. If suppliers of capital do not receive a fair return to compensate them for the risk they are taking, they will withdraw their capital in search of better returns, since value will be lost. A company that is destroying value will always struggle to attract further capital to finance expansion since it will be hamstrung by a share price that stands at a discount to the underlying value of its assets and by higher interest rates on debt or bank loans demanded by creditors. Wealth creation refers to changes in the wealth of shareholders on a periodic (annual) basis. Applicable to exchange-listed firms, changes in shareholder wealth are inferred mostly from changes in stock prices, dividends paid, and equity raised during the period. Since stock prices reflect investor expectations about future cash flows, creating wealth for shareholders requires that the firm undertake investment decisions that have a positive net present value (NPV).8

Although used interchangeably, there is a subtle difference between value creation and wealth creation. The value perspective is based on measuring value directly from accounting-based information with some adjustments, while the wealth perspective relies mainly on stock market information. For a publicly traded firm these two concepts are identical when (i) management provides all pertinent information to capital markets, and (ii) the markets believe and have confidence in management.

Approaches for measuring shareholder value: 1. Marakon Approach:Marakan Associates, an international management-consulting firm founded in1978, has done pioneering work in the area of value-based management. This measure considers the difference between the ROE and required return on equity (cost of equity) as the source of value creation. This measure is a variation of the EV measures. Instead of using capital as the entire base and the cost of capital for calculating the capital charge, this measure uses equity capital and the cost of equity to calculate the capital (equity) charge. Correspondingly, it uses economic value to equity holders (net of interest charges) rather than total firm value. According to Marakan model shareholder wealth creation is measured as the difference between the market value3 and the book value of a firm's equity. Thee book value
