Course Overview


This course is designed to provide Senior Executives with knowledge and skills to evaluate Critical Success Factors that generate value for Firms, both Target and Acquirer. The executives will sharpen their skills in assessing the business and financial risk of a company or division, being able to determine its financial health and the key value drivers. They will expand their ability to spot opportunities to generate value by driving long-term growth strategies. They will compare the two main valuation methodologies, Relative versus Intrinsic and will gain a greater appreciation of the tools available to impact both.


A key theme of the course will be determining the relationship between the return of an asset or investment against its cost of capital, determined on a risk-weighted basis. We will examine major return measures such as Return on Assets (ROA), Return on Equity (ROE) and the concept of Economic Value Added (EVA).


While there will be some modelling in the two-day format, if desired, an additional day can be added to the course to focus on Excel, creating forecasts, debugging models and advanced topics.
