## Understanding Cash EPS Ratio

Cash EPS Ratio is calculated by adding non-cash items in profit after tax divided by weighted average share outstanding. This metric gives a clear picture of the cash earnings of the company. Cash EPS (Earnings Per Share) is also known as Operating Cash Flow, and it is measured on a Per-share basis. In other words, it indicates how much cash profit each share generates.

The formula to derive Cash EPS

Profit After Tax (PAT) - It is the amount that remains after a company pays off its all operating and non-operating expenses, liabilities, and taxes. The company distributes Profit after tax to its shareholders as a dividend or retained it back into the business.

Depreciation - It is the amount that indicates how much of the company's assets value has been used, and it is the process of deducting the cost of assets.

Weighted Share Outstanding - It is the number of shares the company calculates after adjusting changes in share capital during the year. The number of shares can vary during the year due to multiple reasons like buybacks of shares, new issues of shares, stock splits, conversion, etc. It is used because it provides a fair EPS value.

Example of Cash EPS: For the financial year, Bajaj Finance reported Profit after Tax as Rs. 4419.82 Cr. and Depreciation as Rs. 325.27 Cr. and Weighted Average Share Outstanding Rs. 60.26.
The value as per the formula (Profit after Tax + Depreciation / Weighted Share Outstanding) is calculated as [(4419.82 + 325.27) / 60.26)] = 78.74.
