Who should attend

  • All executives having to make strategic decisions, related to investment, acquisition and financial decisions, or who are responsible for those who make these decisions;
  • The finance executive who must be able to interpret, if not perform, a robust and accurate valuation; and
  • Professionals, such as consultants or investment bankers and investments analysts advising on acquisitions, value-based management, restructuring or corporate strategy.

About the course

Learn about the relationship between finance and strategy. As corporate finance is central to strategic decision making, it is important that management understands how these key factors - finance and strategy - interact with one another. Fully coming to grips with this interaction will enable management to better design the organisation's financial strategy in a way that creates value for all stakeholders.

This course provides participants with an opportunity to role-play in a simulated negotiation relating to an acquisition/disposal of a company. This will require participants to value the company using various techniques, argue and defend the basis of their choice of parameters and conclude a deal which benefits their shareholders.

How you will benefit

At the end of the programme, you will be able to:

  • Understand corporate valuation fundamentals (eg: NAV, multiples, EVA and DCF);
  • Understand issues surrounding continuing value (terminal growth rates), capital structure (why debt adds value and the limits of leverage) and the cost of capital (how to estimate what investors require);
  • Apply various valuation tools in practice;
  • Apply issues relating to capital structure and risk;
  • Understand how value can be created through leverage, spin-offs and asset disposals; and
  • Assess the financial restructuring of failing companies.

Key focus areas

  • Various case studies will be discussed and delegates will be required to perform their own analysis to ensure that they extract and are able to apply the relevant insights and techniques; and
  • The emphasis will be on the valuation of companies and corporate finance techniques, such as leverage, spin-offs, acquisitions/disposals of divisions and restructuring.
