Note on Value Drivers
Presents a framework for analyzing strategic decisions. Takes as given the practice of value-based management whereby managers use value as a primary criterion when making financial, strategic, or investment decisions. Through a simple valuation model, it shows how equity value is related to three value drivers profitability, advantage horizon, and reinvestment. Also presents a numerical example to illustrate the model as well as empirical evidence to support the relation between value creation and the value drivers.
