Can corporate governance actually lessen money laundering issues?

Corporate governance is an efficient way of tackling financial and other aspects with solidity. There is greater accountability and different facets of a company is audited and checked by responsible officers to stem any discrepancy.

Often, in many companies, cases of severe money laundering emerge, but no one wishes to take the baton when investigation occurs. People come out unscathed, secure by the same companies’ confidential clauses, and a lot of money goes unaccounted. With corporate governance, such a condition seems untenable, though not impossible.

Companies also pass a lot of their profits through tax havens, the percentage being far ahead than allowed. The strategies need then to be evaluated with a strong hand. Sadly, it is generally the last resort if the legislation to impose corporate governance on such companies in many countries. With anti-corruption and anti-money laundering laws in place, corporate responsibility makes a company outlook fair and promising.

P-E ratio

P-E ratio or the price-earning ratio is the derived value of a share price and the earnings it generates. Most companies are conservative enough to go for facts, and calculate their P-E ratios using the last year or two years. That way, they many not see a glorious picture, but they deal with truth.

However, some are in business of analyzing their future P-E ratios, and announce their future operations in tandem. Ratio of around 20 is considered to be the general average and good going. Of course, future analysis is an assessment, and can go horribly wrong owing to many unexpected occurrences.

Many companies treat P-E ratios as a sham, though it stands to be the simplest evaluation of a companies’ prosperity or decadence. It however depends on the mindset of the companies on how to deal with it.
A lucid future announcement of the ratio gives buyers a picture of company’s prospects.

Logic behind IPO price setting

IPO pricing is pretty similar to post-production and marketing techniques of a movie. One has to judge the overall response of the eventual buyers and thence, market his movie with tenable prints. Likewise, it is essential to gauze the popular perception of the company’s future sustenance and thereby put a price when the company decides to go public in equities.

Underwriters are hired for the specific purpose, and they check out the whole regime, evaluate the system of rival companies and their eventual success and failures. Then, a summed report is presented to the operating board and the actual price bid is suggested.One has to be pretty transparent regarding audit details, as otherwise share prices are bound to plummet down from the initial public offer. In that case, the respective buyers will be fuming and the company will take the toll in eventuality. IPO price has to be abiding with the actual future perception, though it is not legally binding.
