Mind explaining what is the difference between both ROIC and ROCE and what's the formula being used for those two?

From what I understand from Mckinsey Valuation book, ROIC = NOPLAT/(Operating Assets-Operating Liabilities)

Not too sure about ROCE. Hope you guys could help to clarify on this.

Thanks all.

    ROCE = (NI - Pref Div) / Common Equity
    ROIC factors all capital into the mix, and not just common equity.

    P.S. - Not sure if there is any truth to it, but I have heard it said that Damodaran does a better job of writing a textbook than the McK guys do.

    Hi Angus.

    Thanks for your reply. My bad, I was referring to return on capital employed actually.
