Kevin O’Leary, Founder of O’Leary Financial Group on the importance of quality management
Management is very, very important because if a manager understands his real role and the only role of a manager is to provide value for shareholders. So what I look for are really focused in my [epic] managers and understand the only thing I care about is increasing cash flow. So if they are on board for that and they tell what their free cash flow is going to be after Cap X and I believe them, obviously I want to lock at their business strategy. I stick with them as long as they don’t miss their target. Free cash flow is the only thing that matters, everything else is irrelevant and I don’t really like managers with too much vision because vision I can’t monetize. What I can monetize is great executional skills provide me cash flow to pay me in a dividend, everything else is irrelevant.
