Shareholder Return has a number of definitions, but we outline it as: the extent of actions taken by those in management positions, that in turn enrich the company’s shareholders. Shareholder’s money, in theory, should be utilised by senior decision makers to earn a better return on investment for the shareholder, than what they could earn investing elsewhere, with the same level of risk.
One of the best practices to follow as a business owner is to build up your business as if you are preparing it for sale. This allows you as someone in a senior position, to remove yourself from your own internal view of the company, and instead weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of your business as if you were looking to sell it. Through this method, growth issues can be flagged and addressed. When “preparing to exit”, you will often be able to shine a spotlight on the areas that require improvement. It is important to always look to be refining your practices, as this will ultimately attract investors, allow employee buy-ins, and in the long run allow you to have more free time.
