70) Bob's Cellular Phone Company uses ROI to measure divisional performance. Annual ROI calculations for each division have traditionally employed the ending amount of invested capital along with annual operating income and net revenue. The Dupont method is generally used. The company's Phone Accessories Division had the following results for the last two years:

20X5 ROI = ($2,000,000/$20,000,000) × ($20,000,000/$10,000,000) = 0.20

20X6 ROI = ($2,400,000/$25,000,000) × ($25,000,000/$15,000,000) = 0.16

Corporate management was disappointed in the performance of the division for 20X6, since it had made an additional investment in the division that was budgeted for a 23% ROI.
