Focus on profitability without compromising growth – how companies can create shareholder value

In the midst of an uncertain economic outlook, cost inflation, supply chain shocks, and geo-political tensions companies are under unprecedented pressure to navigate the uncertainty and deliver value to its stakeholders. Based on a recent Simon-Kucher global study, companies consider themselves prepared to address the elevated need for resilience, however do not rate themselves ready to capitalize on commercial priorities.

Empirical studies prove that shareholder value is created through a balanced agenda of growth, margin expansion and valuation appreciation – across both bull and bear markets. Growth, out of the three, is identified as the main contributor to shareholder value even in bear markets. This is due to that fact that best performing companies focus not only on cost but on growth also through challenging times and hence improve on their market position when market tailwinds accelerate again. Hence, it is paramount that even in downturns companies focus not only on cost efficiency elements but also growth enabling priorities.

Simon-Kucher, a global consultancy supporting companies unlock better growth, has supported thousands of companies in realizing their full commercial potential. Utilizing a full-suite of organic and inorganic growth paths, companies have a rich toolkit of commercial levers to leverage in pursuing better growth.
