THE CONCEPT OF SHAREHOLDER VALUE


A company is successful only when the value for stakeholders is created.

 Revenues and profits are not the only manner in which shareholder value is created.
Maximization of shareholder value is a function of sound financial decision making.



The management team of a corporation should keenly create, measure and maximize shareholder value to meet the stakeholder expectations and maximize the growth of the company. 

The stakeholders in a corporation are also its employees, customers, suppliers, and communities it serves; therefore, altering the age-old perspective that companies exist only to maximize shareholder returns. The new shareholders in a company are now the stakeholders.

However, shareholder value  increases the Present Value of Business by a process called Shareholder Value Enhancement or Shareholder Value Augmentation (SVAg).

In other words, Shareholder Value Augmented (SVAg) addresses the change in value over the Forecast Period. Value Augmentation can happen only if the Investments earn over the Cost of Capital required by the Capital Market.

Normally such enhancement may be achieved by

     a.    Increasing operating profit margins by introducing cost efficiencies or divesting in a loss-making business
 
b.   Reducing Tax by discounting the cost of debt or creating a debt v equity structure favorable to the business balance sheet
 
c.    Improving the sales growth rate by either leveraging the existing customer base or adding new products
 
d.   Reducing Incremental fixed and working capital Investment rate by working off customer advances and creating a product portfolio based on customer requirements inventory.
 
e.   Increasing the duration of growth or the forecast period by creating long term competitive advantages

SO WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN ?

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.



All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…

THE ABORTION FIGHT IS NOT ABOUT ABORTION

It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump


When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
