    The session lays the foundations to build a solid understanding of corporate valuation in the context of investment banking. The most common valuation methodologies are introduced, explaining the difference between a company's fundamental value, and how much an acquirer would pay for the business. The concepts of enterprise value and equity value are explained, using simple but rigorous exercises. Finally, the basics of multiple valuation and discounted cash flow valuation are introduced.

    DCF Valuation

    Delegates learn how to build a discounted cash flow valuation model. The session starts with an overview of the valuation methodology, and the steps required in setting up a valuation model. We then focus on the calculation of free cash flow. A detailed ratio analysis is used to establish the reasonableness of the forecasts and to identify when the target company reaches a steady state. We analyze the weighted average cost of capital, breaking it down into its components.

    We complete the valuation model by calculating terminal values, using both the exit multiple method and the perpetuity growth method. The free cash flows are discounted to arrive at enterprise values and the implied share price. Once the valuation is complete delegates perform several checks on the analysis using key ratios, sensitivity and scenario analysis.
