Synopsis: Recent events have turned the spotlight on the issue of corporate accountability -- especially when it comes to protecting shareholder value. In the modern corporation, non-owners commonly manage day-to-day operations, and their decisions have a direct impact on the company's overall value. But what can management do to positively impact share price and protect shareholder investment? A Blueprint for Corporate Governance is unique in that it addresses shareholder value from a managerial perspective. This important book covers all essential corporate governance issues from this angle, providing detailed information and insights on: * Contemporary asset pricing models, and how they can help managers determine optimal returns on shareholder funds * Financial structures and dividend policies designed to advance shareholder interests * Methods for executives, managers and boards of directors to work as one to enhance and increase shareholder value.
From the Inside Flap:
As the seemingly invincible empires of Enron, Global Crossing, Tyco, and others have come tumbling ignominiously down, the question of corporate governance has never been so urgent. Who is responsible for these debacles? How did the current organizational structure of shareholders, boards of directors, CEOs, managers, and customers/suppliers/creditors fail to protect investors? Is it even the best model for protecting shareholder interests? And what can managers and executives do to positively impact share price?
A Blueprint for Corporate Governance provides the first sweeping, detailed overview of the topic. And it does so from a uniquely managerial perspective, focusing on how employees can keep their eye on the big picture of strategy, accountability, and the preservation of shareholder value. Filled with a wealth of financial data and real-world examples, A Blueprint for Corporate Governance:
* Traces the emergence of the corporation in the 19th century and the eventual dominance of a market-based contractual theory of corporate governance, where transparency, investor protection laws, and efficient markets become critical for shareholders to monitor management and advance economic growth.
* Supplies an astute analysis of how investors value stock prices, so that managers can identify and implement value-maximizing operating and financing policies.
* Explains how the financial contracts between the company and the suppliers of capital establish who controls the company and what will happen if the corporation fails to honor its financial obligations.
* Uncovers the ways that short-term incentive plans (bonuses) and long-term plans (stock options) can be used to enhance performance and shareholder wealth--or be manipulated and exploited to increase an executive's private riches.
* Examines the reasons for mergers, acquisitions, hostile takeovers, management buyouts, spin-offs, and more--and explains how to determine whether they will positively or negatively affect stock prices.
* Looks at how boards should be selected, organized, and monitored by shareholders to ensure their interests remain supreme--and eliminate the conflicts of interest that can sabotage a board's ability to fulfill its watchdog function.
By outlining and critiquing the current corporate governance practices in firms across the country as well as supplying statistical evidence that points to which practices best serve shareholder interests, the book supplies a much-needed blueprint for reforming this crucial function.
