Corporate Finance - ECFL866

The unit is concerned with the foundations of corporate shareholder value, the valuation of a company’s assets and how they should be financed.

It is based on the theory and methods developed in prerequisite Units, particularly the time value of money, discounted cash flow technique, Capital Asset Pricing Model and the concept of optionality. There is considerable emphasis on using financial statement information, the preparation of cash flow forecasts, computation of discount rates and the application of various valuation methods. Capital structure is analysed extensively from the viewpoint of its effect on corporate value. Other topics include mergers & acquisitions, fund raising and international investment decisions.
