What We Do

Corporate Finance

Value-based management drives our performance targets and incentives. We have set ambitious short and medium-term financial and operating targets and, to help meet these,have aligned the interests of management and employees with those of our shareholders and customers.

Our incentive systems are linked to key aspects of shareholder value, such as margins and asset productivity. Our strategic focus is centred on profitable growth, better margins through innovation and higher productivity, improved asset management, and turnarounds in operations whose past performance has not been world class.

  • The hurdle rate should be higher for riskier projects and reflect the financing mix used - owners’ funds (equity) or borrowed money (debt)
  • Returns on projects should be measured based on cash flows generated and the timing of these cash flows; they should also consider both positive and negative side effects of these projects.
The form of returns - dividends and stock buybacks - will depend upon the stockholders’ characteristics
