In Q3, Celanese earned $224.00 million and total sales reached $1.41 billion. What Is ROCE? Return on Capital Employed is a measure of yearly pre-tax profit relative to capital employed by a business. Changes in earnings and sales indicate shifts in a company's ROCE. A higher ROCE is generally representative of successful growth of a company and is a sign of higher earnings per share in the future. A low or negative ROCE suggests the opposite. In Q4, Celanese posted an ROCE of 0.04%.

A relatively high ROCE shows Celanese is potentially operating at a higher level of efficiency than other companies in its industry.

For Celanese, the return on capital employed ratio shows the number of assets can actually help the company achieve higher returns, an important note investors will take into account when gauging the payoff from long-term financing strategies.
