Valuing assets, projects, investments or just different alternatives can be daunting even though it is a major responsibility for many financial professionals. There are three general approaches to valuation; discounted cash flow (DCF), relative (multiples), and contingent claim. While these approaches can yield different estimates of value, this course will explain the reasons for such differences and provide a way of determining how to select the right model for a specific task. This seminar will also help develop clear guidelines for the valuation process and introduce time-tested models which can be utilized by the corporate finance professional.
