Corporate profit maximization , Managerial Economics

Difference between corporate profit maximization and maximization of shareholder wealth?

Ans) Sure, profit maximization relates to profits *only* while shareholder wealth also includes total company equity, debt ratios and any of 15 other financial performance calculates ratios. Management could focus on profit maximization over a longer period of time, say, 40 years (Toyota), Whereas the shareholder would rather see stock values and corporate total value enhance immediately (get in and get out) (90% of American manufacturers). If management focused on short-term profit maximization, say at the cost of long-term sales revenues, then shareholder wealth (stock price) could actually reduce because of the loss of market share.
