Corporations earn incomes and amass wealth. There are many books offering advice how to increase the profitability of corporations by achieving excellence in operations and choosing the correct strategic path. Increasing Shareholder Value: Distribution Policy, A Corporate Finance Challenge is concerned with how the corporation should reward its shareholders after the incomes are earned. Investment decisions, capital structure, and dividend policy must be coordinated so that the well being of the firm's stockholders is considered in the planning process. The corporate planners should realize that the individual investors are also making plans, and the corporation can assist this planning process by making its own financial plans and strategies well known.
