Objectives and basic consideration of Financial management. • Though profit maximisation is the objective of financial management • The long-term goal of the business entity is to achieve maximising the shareholder value of the firm • Because the “principle of maximisation of shareholder wealth provides a rational guide for running a business and for efficient allocation of resources in society”.
The key objective of Financial Management is to maximise the value of the company. • This could be possible by • good investment decisions • prudent financing decisions and • well thought-out financial planning and control.
Maximisation of the value of the company is also known as maximisation of the wealth of the owners.
To achieve maximisation of value of the company, finance manager has to take careful decisions in respect of -Financing -Investment -Dividend -Current asset management.
Financing decision- • Has to decide on sources of funds for business. • It is to be decided whether entire capital should be raised from equity capital or a part is to be raised from loan. • Hence Debt/Equity ratio or Leverage are important since each source has in them associated risk factors involved.
Investment decision • It relates to acquisition of assets. • Assets are classified into • real assets such as - land - building - plant - equipment etc. and - the financial assets are - shares and - debentures etc. • It indicates available mix of financing to fund company’s activities. • Such decisions on investment in projects come within the field of capital budgeting which is derived from net present value of assets.
Dividend decision- - It is basically a financing decision. - This is because profit is a source of fund. - By not paying dividend, the “retained earnings”or ‘reserve’ can be increased which could be otherwise available for investment. • This ultimately lead to maximisation of wealth of the organisation provided decisions on investments are correct.
Current Asset Management- • This is necessary to maintain balance between current assets and current liability, • The liquidity of the business is interrupted because of holding too much fund in current assets.
Wealth maximisation &value maximisation • The goal of financial management is to maximise the value of companies. • This is generally expressed in terms of maximising the value of the ownership shares of the company • In short,maximising share price. • Thus,better performing companies can raise additional funds under more favourable terms. • This basic objective of maximising the price of the company’s shares is called ‘value maximisation’.
Social responsibility is also an important goal of a company which requires -Maximising share-price by efficient,well- managed operations related to consumer demand parameters. -Efficiency & innovation leads to value maximisation which leads to new products,new technologies and better employment. -External factors like pollution,product safety and job safety have achieved added dimensions in relation to value maximisation.
Profit maximisation vs.Wealth maximisation • Long run vs.Short run Profits. • Convert total corporate profits to earning per share(EPS). • EPS is total profits divided by number of shares outstanding. • Assume the firm earns Rs.10 mn.and has 1mn.shares outstanding.The EPS will work out to Rs.10. • Profit maximisation is a short-term concept, • while wealth maximisation emphasises the long-term view point.
State whether true or false • The income statement depicts the financial position of the firm at a given point of time • The balance sheet gives the financial performance of the firm over a given period of time. • These statements are prepared every week. • Funds Flow statement gives the liquidity position of the firm.
Cash Flow statement tells from where the money comes and where it is used. • The prime objective of financial management is wealth maximisation,and not profit maximisation. • What is earnings per share? a)Net Profit b)Profit before interest and tax c)Total earnings divided by investment d)Net profit divided by equity

Net Present Value method - A selection method using the difference between the present value of the cash inflows of the project and the investment outlay. - The method evaluates the differential cash flow between proposals.
Internal rate of return method A selection method using the compounding rate of return on the cash flow of the project.
Payback method - A selection method in which a firm sets a maximum payback period during which cash inflow must be sufficient to recover the initial outlay. - This method ignores the time value of money and cash flow beyond the pay back period.
