It mergers all necessary and meaningful information of financial statements reflecting supply and demand factors which are largely determined by industry and firm specific factors. Further decomposition of ROE according to HOB model make more clear the internal and external environment assessment and explains more fully the value creation process contributing considerably to strategic management process.
