English translation:Historically, we have always provided our shareholders with strong capital growth
Explanation:
This is a rather liberal interpretation of the French 'valeur ajoutee', but I just have a sneaking suspicion that this is what is implied here. Maybe you can tell from the context?

agree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: Cf. Cecilia's note. "valeur ajoutée" here, just as in English can have an ordinary meaning too. It is clearly nothing to do with TVA/VAT wo works fine.www.phptr.com/ptrbooks/ptr_0273650343.html

disagree  Helen D. Elliot (X): valeur ajoutée is simply "added value" which benefits the shareholder down the line. Why change the French idea?

We have a tradition of providing shareholders with high added value


Explanation:
high added value translates into more profits for the company and consequently higher shareholder value. But the direct reference is to (high) added value.
