Valuation Methods

Valuation Methods is a two-day case-study course that draws from the finance curricula of leading graduate business schools in the United States and Asia.  The course is heavily quantitative and covers the components of discounted cash flow analysis in detail: projecting cash flows and terminal values and analyzing relevant assumptions; using the capital asset pricing model to calculate the cost of debt, the cost of equity, and the weighted average cost of capital; using the free cash flow, capital cash flow and adjusted present value methods; analyzing cross-currency transactions. The course also covers valuation using current and historical trading multiples of comparable companies and analysis of comparable precedent transactions. The course is taught using the case method supplemented by short consolidating lectures.

Our core Valuation Methods course looks at a mix of public and private deals in a variety of industries and geographic locations. We tailor our curriculum for in-house seminars.
