Shareholders'' wealth maximization, Financial Management

Shareholders' wealth maximization

Shareholders' wealth maximization refers to maximization of the net present value of every decision made in the firm. Total present value is equivalent to the difference among the current value of advantages received from a decision and the current value of the cost of the decision.

The financial action with a positive total current value will maximize the wealth of the shareholders, whereas a decision with a negative total present value will decrease the wealth of the shareholders. Beneath this aim, a firm will only take those decisions that outcome in a positive net present value.

Shareholder wealth maximization aids to resolve the troubles with profit maximization. This is since, the goal:

  • Considers time value of money by concession the probable future cash flows to the present.
  • It identifies risk by using a discount rate (that is a measure of risk) to concession the cash flows to the present.
