Overview

Innovative strategies to help managers focus on -- and work to increase -- shareholder value.

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.
