Product Description

From the Back Cover


‘The easy, no-nonsense approach to corporate valuation.’ 


Fiona McGuire, Corporate Finance Director FGS


Understanding corporate valuation is crucial for all business people in today’s corporate world.  No other measure can indicate as completely the current status as well as the future prospects of a company. 

The Financial Times Guide to Corporate Valuation is a quick, no-nonsense guide to a complex subject.  Whether you’re a manager, executive, entrepreneur or student this comprehensive reading guide will help you tailor your learning according to your experience, existing knowledge and time constraints.  Using the example of a fictional European telecommunications company, Mobitronics, as a model, it provides key insights into universal issues in corporate valuation and the most commonly used valuation methods.

HASH(0xa3d65e40) out of 5 stars Takes the theories into the "real world" Oct. 31 2010
By Daniel Hunter - Published on
Format: Paperback
Compared to many similar books I have read this book truly focuses on the most important and interesting parts of valuation. The reader benefits from being able to quickly understand the broader concepts without losing interest. Another thing I like is that the book can be used both by beginners/students and by more advanced practitioners. Even if I have studied Finance for a few years there are ideas/models presented in the book which are new to me.

The chapters explain valuation techniques such as multiples and discounted cash flow (DCF) valuation. Moreover, the book also discusses the underlying key value drivers and management's role in a company. All of this is presented in a very accessible way. I'm learning a tremendous amount from this book, and I would highly recommend it!


Wide-ranging and accessible content
Good structure and easy to read
Plenty of illustrative graphs and examples


Contains no resource CD with additional learning materials

Format: Paperback
I bought this book and another one on corporate valuation. After starting with the 200 pages FT Guide I have a very hard time motivating myself to the other 600 pages "brick-sized" book - I feel I already know all I need to know...

HASH(0xa3fdaedc) out of 5 stars Not clean one. Oct. 28 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I haven't read yet. It's the most expensive one of the four books I bought, but when I got this book I found the last five or more pages are a little bit dirty. It makes me unhappy.
