A Practical Approach with Case Studiesvon Benedicto Kulwizira Lukanima
This book provides students with basic knowledge and advance skills for addressing practical challenges in valuation. First, the book presents financial information as a vital ingredient for performing corporate valuation. Second, the book presents key concepts of value and valuation and basic techniques for cash flow discounting. Third, the book offers an understanding of the reality of valuation, not simply as a numerical subject, as most people tend to think, but as a combination of objective and subjective aspects. Finally, it examines valuation in relation to the linkage between a firm’s objective, management role in value creation, investors’ decisions, and the valuation role of financial information.
