Introduction to Corporate Finance has been developed to provide a first course in the subject that interests and motivates students. The text has been designed to meet the needs of finance specialists and non-specialists, the latter being a segment of the audience that are not well catered for in the finance subject area. The text thus addresses the challenges all finance educators face: keeping students at varying degrees of ability and interest motivated and committed to the learning experience. The principal aim of the book is to deliver a student-friendly text that at the same time is theoretically rigorous. Corporate Finance covers the traditional topics of time value of money, risk and return, valuation, investment appraisal, capital structure and dividend policy, international finance and risk management, and financial planning. This edition is an adaptation for a European and UK audience of the text originally authored by Bill Megginson and Scott Smart, Introduction to Corporate Finance. The book has been rewritten, restructured and reorganized to reflect a European-centric approach.Throughout the authors have attempted to blend a balance of material it is impossible and improper to ignore the interlinkedness of modern finance, and in adapting this book the authors have been conscious of this. Although the examples, terminology and currencies are mainly those of Europe and the UK, the authors have not neglected to include US and other examples where needed to illustrate a point. Students working through this text will realise by the end that while details may differ from country to country the essential questions and concerns of corporate finance remain constant.
A timely update to the global best-selling book on investment banking and valuation
In the constantly evolving world of finance, a solid technical foundation is an essential tool for success. Due to the fast-paced nature of this world, however, no one has been able to take the time to properly codify the lifeblood of the corporate financier's work--namely, valuation. Rosenbaum and Pearl have responded to this need by writing the book that they wish had existed when they were trying to break into Wall Street.
Investment Banking: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts, and Mergers & Acquisitions, Second Edition is a highly accessible and authoritative book that focuses on the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street--comparable companies, precedent transactions, DCF, and LBO analysis--as well as M&A analysis. These methodologies are used to determine valuation for public and private companies within the context of M&A transactions, LBOs, IPOs, restructurings, and investment decisions. Using a step-by-step how-to approach for each methodology, the authors build a chronological knowledge base and define key terms, financial concepts, and processes throughout the book. They also provide a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of LBOs and an organized M&A sale process, as well as merger consequences analysis.
For undergraduate courses in corporate finance or financial management.

Corporate finance is the area of finance dealing with the sources of funding and the capital structure of corporations, the actions that managers take to increase the value of the firm to the shareholders, and the tools and analysis used to allocate financial resources. The primary goal of corporate finance is to maximize or increase shareholder value. Although it is in principle different from managerial finance which studies the financial management of all firms, rather than corporations alone, the main concepts in the study of corporate finance are applicable to the financial problems of all kinds of firms.

When the three of us decided to write a book,
we were united by one strongly held principle:
Corporate finance should be developed
in terms of a few integrated, powerful ideas.
We believed that the subject was all too often presented
as a collection of loosely related topics, unified primarily
by virtue of being bound together in one book, and
we thought there must be a better way.
One thing we knew for certain was that we didn’t
want to write a “me-too” book. So, with a lot of help,
we took a hard look at what was truly important and
useful. In doing so, we were led to eliminate topics of
dubious relevance, downplay purely theoretical issues,
and minimize the use of extensive and elaborate calculations
to illustrate points that are either intuitively obvious
or of limited practical use.
As a result of this process, three basic themes became
our central focus in writing Fundamentals of
