In the mid-1980s, Coca-Cola rolled out a series of financial instruments designed to create value for the company, without realizing the negative repercussions they would have. As a result, shareholders’ profits stalled between 1998 and 2009, dealing a significant blow to the beverage giant’s overall value. It is important to remember that value creation is underpinned by the need to generate a strong enough operational ROI to fuel a business’s growth and deliver on promises made to investors, otherwise known as cost of capital. But deploying this principle requires an in-depth understanding of the model, its underlying assumptions and the associated parameters. This seminar will revisit key financial concepts and instruments used in the business world, focusing specifically on how to avoid backfires when introducing initiatives designed to create value.
