Course description

Advanced Corporate Analysis, Valuation & Financial Modelling

The course will run for three days, with a 3 ¼ hour session in the morning and in the afternoon. There will be a 15-minute mid-break in the morning and afternoon and a one-hour lunch break. Participants must bring a lap-top to the course to carry out the case studies.

Company valuation is used for the purposes of investment, M&A or as part of internal measures of financial control. It is extensively applied when companies issue new shares, undertake capital redemptions, divest operations or acquire other companies. The ever-present private equity industry is also dependent on solid valuation analysis. There are many different approaches to the analysis and valuation of companies and it is paramount to know when and how
to apply the most appropriate method. It is also essential to understand that company analysis is not an absolute science but based on interpretation and judgment. This highly practical course will lead you quickly from the basics through to the more advanced analysis and valuation methodologies and modelling techniques. The course also examines how valuations can be adjusted for illiquidity, NCI stakes and private status..


This practical course is taught using formal lectures combined with practical and interactive case studies and exercises to reinforce the concepts covered in each teaching session. Emphasis is placed on you gaining hands­on experience of the various valuation techniques.
