We'll learn to look beyond the current numbers to uncover a company's hidden earnings power -- a powerful valuation technique for valuing today's dynamic growth businesses.


This course will provide students the key building blocks required for a career in investment banking, valuation, and other corporate-finance focused fields. It is designed to provide a practical application of financial statement analysis and valuation techniques commonly performed by industry professionals.


In this module you will explore the concept of comparability of company financial information, a key building block of valuation. The primary application of that concept is the development of the financial spread template, which is used to standardize the presentation of company financial and market information within accounting periods and across companies. Also addressed in this module is the calculation of fully diluted shares and adjusting financial statements to consider the impact of one-time, non-recurring and unusual items.


What determines a company's stock price? Placing a value on companies is a key tool for M&A analysis. This module will present the main techniques available to estimate a company's value, including multiples-based and cash flow-based valuation methods. These valuation tools will be presented using the most up-to-date Finance theory, and real-world examples.


This module will present how to build a discounted cash flow analysis, a fundamental valuation technique, as well as the concepts of financial forecasting, free cash flow, weighted average cost of capital, terminal value and present value.


Knowledge of fundamental analysis and security valuation is essential to assess the information content of financial statements, isolate the long-term value drivers of a business, and successfully implement trading strategies.


Investment bankers, asset managers, financial analysts, and private equity investors use fundamental analysis techniques to critically evaluate financial data and design complex valuation models to guide their strategic decisions.


Students are expected to develop security analysis and valuation skills to support the interpretation, evaluation, and use of financial information from the viewpoint of major users of financial statements (i.e. equity investors, corporate lenders, etc.). Ultimately, students will be able to analyse a wide variety of financial reporting issues and discuss their valuation implications drawing on cutting-edge academic research and real-world case studies, including Apple, Ferrari, Netflix, and Tesco.


This course is aimed at students who, at some point in their careers, expect to use financial reporting information to evaluate past and current performance, assess future prospects, and estimate the intrinsic value of a business. The primary focus of the course is on the analysis of public corporations, but many tools and techniques that students will learn are also relevant to private company fundamental analysis.


Creating value is the central task for any executive. To generate value, managers need to be able to assess the financial impact of their decisions, which in turn requires an understanding of financial analysis techniques and valuation methods. Similarly, investors, creditors, and other stakeholders use such skills in evaluating the implications of decisions made by managers. Financial Analysis and Valuation will help you evaluate the financial consequences of business decisions and how to value companies, businesses, and investments.


By completing this program, you will gain an understanding of financial statement analysis, corporate finance, and valuation methods. You will learn how to estimate the value of equity and debt securities and how to evaluate the financial consequences of various business decisions and activities, including:


For each of the above activities, we will discuss the impact on the financial statements and on key financial ratios, as well as implications for performance and risk assessment, forecasting and valuation. For example, how are M&A activities reflected in the financial statements? How do they affect key ratios such as profit margin and earnings per share? How do they affect expected cash flows, risk, and value?


This program is comprised of class lectures in which concepts will be developed and explained, with an emphasis on implementation. Participants will receive excel workbooks containing valuation models and various financial analysis tools and use them to solve real-world exercises. The class notes, excel workbooks and, most importantly, knowledge acquired in the program will provide participants with the tool kit needed for conducting financial analysis and valuation.


Financial Analysis and Valuation is designed for upper- and senior-level executives, financial analysts, portfolio managers, and other professionals interested in deepening their knowledge of financial analysis and valuation. This is not an entry-level program. Participants should have a basic understanding of financial reporting and financial analysis, including financial statements, key accounting principles, and present value techniques.


Intangible assets are increasingly critical to corporate value, yet current accounting standards make it difficult to capture them in financial statements. This information gap can affect valuations for the worse.


The inventory valuation method a company chooses can affect its gross profit during an accounting period. Note that the choice of inventory valuation method is an accounting decision and not necessarily related to the way a company actually uses its inventory. For example, if a company uses FIFO valuation, it is not obliged to move the oldest inventory first.


The way a company values its inventory directly affects its cost of goods sold (COGS), gross income and the monetary value of inventory remaining at the end of each period. Therefore, inventory valuation affects the profitability of a company and its potential value, as presented in its financial statements.


Selecting an inventory valuation method is also important because once a company has made its decision, it generally should stick to it. The IRS requires companies to commit to one method during their first year of filing tax returns, and to obtain permission if they want to change the method in subsequent years.


Inventory valuation can become very complex, especially as businesses grow. A company may buy hundreds or thousands of different items for resale or components to build its products, and it must assign costs to each product to accurately calculate profit and tax liability. Attempting to manage and monitor inventory finances with spreadsheets can become extremely cumbersome, time-consuming and error-prone.


Leading financial management software supports the most popular inventory valuation methods to automate the tracking and calculation of inventory costs. That helps give leaders a clear, accurate and up-to-date financial picture of their business at any time, and also reduces the burden of creating financial statements. Using software to manage inventory valuation can increase accuracy and allow staff to focus on more valuable tasks.


The choice of inventory valuation method is an important decision for any company. For many businesses, inventory represents a significant percentage of their total asset value. The way a company values that inventory can directly affect its COGS, profit and tax liability, and once it chooses a method, it generally has to use it for an extended period.


Inventory is generally valued based on cost. Calculating cost can get complicated, depending on the type of business and the inventory valuation method used. To determine the total cost of inventory, the company first has to determine how much inventory it has at all stages of production. It needs to calculate all the materials, labor and other expenses associated with that inventory. And it also must pick an inventory valuation method.


Whereas every large company has a sophisticated and robust IT infrastructure for generating financial reports, few firms have reliable systems for measuring ESG performance. Instead, ESG information is typically generated through spreadsheets or various boutique software solutions focused on distinct topics, such as carbon emissions, supply chain, or customer retention. The result is untimely and poor-quality ESG data, which presents challenges not only to investors but to corporate managers themselves. Indeed, one of the main obstacles today for many companies wishing to produce an integrated report is that their ESG information is rarely available at the same time and in a comparable format as financial information. Developing standards for ESG information, as GRI and SASB are doing, will be helpful here. But corporate leaders can also play a vital role in speeding the pace of change in three ways. 041b061a72
