This 2-day practical Finance course will equip participants with the relevant skill sets to make the correct financial decisions that would enhance and not destroy Shareholder Value. The course will provide commercial insights into the critical twin objectives of Cash Flow and Market Value that drives the valuation of any business.
The course will be designed in two parts. The first part looks at the starting point of the decision making process, that is, the companys performance to-date based on Financial Statement Analysis. This part of the course will use published audited financial statements and performs through case study analysis, a comprehensive review of the Companys performance based on key financial ratios. Two questions addressing fundamental and timing issues will be discussed, namely: Should we invest in a Capital Project? and When should we invest in the Project?
The second part of the Course will take the conclusions reached from the analysis of the companys financials and apply them to three business finance decisions, namely the Investment downstream decision, the Financing upstream decision and the Working Capital decision. We will look at these three decisions in the context of the Companys projected cash flows and market values. This part of the Course concludes by giving participants with clear understanding that in business, Shareholder Value can be created on both the Investment and Financing sides of the Balance Sheet.
In this course, participants will be able to apply these newly acquired skill sets to case studies that will follow as the conclusion of every topic.
