Course Outline:

  • Analyzing A Company’s Cash: Fundamental to any valuation exercise is an understanding of the company’s business, its strategy, competitive advantage, and the drivers that affect its cash flows. This workshop looks at operating, investing, and financing activities within a company.
  • Methodology: This workshop is designed to examine the different methods that are used for company valuations. It provides an in-depth look at the pidend Discount Model (DDM) and the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model, the most commonly used methods for company valuations.
  • Cost Calculations:valuations require the use of discount rates to discount the relevant forecasted valuation attribute. This workshop examines how to calculate the cost of capital, the cost of debt, the cost of equity, and the weighted average cost of capital.
  • Discounts:This workshop examines the discounts that are often applied to valuations. These include discounts for a lack of control, illiquidity and lack of marketability, and unsystematic risks such as dependence on key personnel and key customers. These discounts are particularly relevant in the valuation of small, private, and public unlisted companies.

Valuation Comparisons:The value of a company is benchmarked against comparable companies. This is referred to as a “compco analysis” and uses pricing multiples that relate the value to some measure of financial performance or financial position.
