Finance project case 8
I need a project on this case
The agency problem refers to the separation of ownership and control. Shareholders are the owners, but managers control the firm from day to day. Managers are expected to act as agents on behalf of the owners who are considered principals. Sometimes, however, managers act in their own self-interest. Some ways they might do this include excessive consumption of perks (e.g., flying the corporate jet to a personal vacation spot), just wasting time (e.g., now working), or making decisions without considering the effect on shareholder wealth (e.g., adding more employees so that they have a “kingdom” under their control).
Both target company CEOs and acquiring company CEOs may have goals that are different than the goals of their shareholders.
Post a paragraph describing the actions that one of these CEOs might take that would be contrary to the principle of shareholder value maximization; Describe how the action is against shareholder interest or how it might destroy shareholder value. Be clear in your discussion of whether you are talking about a target company CEO or an acquiring company CEO.
