Find the Levers That Create Value in Your Ethanol Business

 

Like investors in any business, investors in ethanol plants seek a return on their investment. Whether returns take the form of short term dividends or long term capital gains, the ability to deliver returns to shareholders is based on the ability of the business to drive cash flows to shareholders over time. Since the value of your business is based on your ability to drive cash flow, it is important to understand the levers that generate cash flow in your business as well as how you might improve that potential going forward.

A common misconception regarding the measurement of business and shareholder value is that it only matters when considering the sale of the organization. Shouldn’t the value of the business to shareholders as well as the factors that most affect it be important considerations in any strategic or financial planning discussion?

Not all gallons are created equal--know how your plant creates value!
