This alternative calculation generates the same value for economic profit:
Economic profit = S100 - (\$1,000 x 8%)
This approach shows that economic profit is similar in concept to accounting net income, but it explicitly charges a company for all its capital, not just the interest on its debt.
A simple example will illustrate how economic profit can be used for valuations. Assume that Company C from above invested \$1,000 in working capital and fixed assets at the beginning of period 1. Each year after that it earns \$100 of NOPLAT (a 10 percent ROIC). Its net investment is zero, so its free cash flow is also \$100. Company C's economic profit is \$20 a year as calculated above.
The economic profit approach says that the value of a company equals the amount of capital invested plus a premium or discount equal to the present value of its projected economic profit:
Value = Invested capital + Present value of projected economic profil
The logic behind this is straightforward. If a company earned exactly its WACC every period, then the discounted value of its projected free cash flow should exactly equal its invested capital. The company is worth exactly what was originally invested. A company is worth more or less than its invested capital only to the extent that it earns more or less than its WACC. Therefore, the premium or discount relative to invested capital must equal the present value of the company's future economic profit.
Company C earns \$20 a year more than investors demand (its economic profit). So the value of company C should equal \$1,000 (its invested capital at the time of the valuation) plus the present value of its economic profit. In this case since economic profit remains forever at \$20 a year, we can use a perpetuity formula to calculate the present value of its economic profit.

Present value of economic profit =
Company C's value is \$1,250. If you were to discount company C's free cash flow you would also end up with a value for company C of \$1,250. Company C's projected free cash flow is \$100 a year.

Exhibits 8.11 and 8.12 show the economic profit and economic profit valuation of Hershey Foods. In 1998, Hershey generated economic profit of \$293 million. In other words, Hershey made \$293 million of operating profit more than required by investors based on the returns available from alternative investments. Note that the economic profit value of Hershey exactly equals the discounted free cash flow value that we calculated earlier in this chapter. Furthermore, as would be expected, the value of operations, \$10.2 billion, exceeds the amount of invested capital (at the end of 1998) of \$1.8 billion. In present value terms, Hershey has created \$8.4 billion of value (\$10.2 billion less \$1.8 billion).
