There are numerous studies analyzing the relationship between global financial crisis and financial performance of business. Although, recent surveys reflect the upper hand to a generally negative relationship, this question still gives rise to debate. To approach the issue from different perspective the question that whether accounting based on financial performance and value based on Economic Value-Added (EVA) play a role during periods of uncertainty? In this study, it is purposed to test this hypothesis of financial performance acting as an sample of BİST 100 listed companies, over pre and post crisis reference periods around the current financial crisis. Furthermore, this study examines the impact of cash ratio, liqudity ratio and cash conversion cycle of the recent 2008 global financial crisis on the relation between a firm’s performance and Economic Value-Added (EVA) using a sample of BİST 100 firms covering the period from 2003 to 2012. According to research findings that explanatory power of independent variables to explain dependent variables is higher in the post-financial crisis period. Moreover, EVA, which is known as a measure of modern performance in the post-crisis period, has higher explanatory power for these variables.
