20 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-19 Should Firms Maximize Profit? Corporations commonly define profit as “Earnings per Share” (EPS). –A measure of total earnings divided by total number of ownership shares. EPS ignores critical factors of –the timing of the returns. –cash flows available to common shareholders. –risk factors facing the firm.

21 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-20 Or Should Firms Maximize Shareholder Wealth? Evaluating Shareholder Wealth addresses factors of timing, cash flows and risk ignored by the EPS. Therefore, Maximizing Shareholder Wealth is a more comprehensive goal for the firm, its managers and employees. This can be explored through “economic valued added” and a focus on stakeholders.

22 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-21 Economic Value Added – EVA ® EVA measures whether an investment contributes to shareholder wealth. EVA is calculated by subtracting cost of funds used from after-tax operating profits. While popular, EVA is essentially derived from the concept of “net present value.”

23 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-22 What about Stakeholders? Stakeholders include groups that have direct economic links to the firm. Stakeholders include not only owners, but also employees, customers, suppliers, and creditors. Maintaining positive stakeholder relationships helps maximize long-term benefits to shareholders.

BZUPAGES.COM 1-23 Importance of Ethics The standards of conduct or moral judgment: Honesty, trustworthiness, fair dealing are foundations of sustainable business relations: –With customers, –With suppliers, –With creditors, –With employees, –With owners. Ethical behaviour is necessary to achieve the goal of maximizing shareholder wealth.

25 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-24 Internal Ethical Review Are rights of stakeholders being violated? Does firm have extra duties to stakeholders? Will a decision unfairly discriminate benefits among stakeholders? If stakeholders are harmed, should this be remedied? How? What is the relationship between shareholders and stakeholders?

27 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-26 Agency Issues: The Principal-Agent Problem Whenever ownership is independent of management there exists potential problem of conflicts. The owner’s goals for the firm are best described as maximizing shareholder wealth. Managers are also concerned with personal wealth, job security, lifestyle, and benefits. These concerns may conflict with shareholder interests.

28 © 2005 Pearson Education Canada Inc. BZUPAGES.COM 1-27 Resolving the Agency Problem Good corporate governance by the Board of Directors is the heart of any resolution. Agency Costs – the costs of this governance: –Monitoring costs, –Bonding costs, –Structuring compensation costs. Market forces, such as the potential for hostile takeover provide some deterrence. Legal forces, fraud, and fiduciary misconduct laws aim to act as deterrents as well.

BZUPAGES.COM 1-28 Current View on Incentive Plans Executive compensation packages generally include incentive plans that grant stock options, performance-based shares, or cash bonuses upon meeting or exceeding corporate goals. Such packages may also include long-term benefits that can protect the manager against poor corporate performance.
