  3. 3. Highlights of the Workshops: BASIC FINANCIAL & DCF MODELING 27th October 2008, Monday 1:30pm – 6:00pm This course provides a practical, hands-on approach to the quantitative and technical aspects of basic financial modeling using Excel. Learn how to model and project a top-down financial statement for valuation purposes or for analyzing mergers and acquisitions. Each participant will be provided with a 10K (Annual Report) and a list of advanced Excel shortcuts. You will input publicly available information and learn various shortcuts to construct a five-year income statement projection and discounted cash flow analysis. The income statement projection will concentrate on growth rates, margins and estimated from revenue down to EPS. The DCF will focus on properly deriving free cash flow and terminal value estimates including the multiples and perpetuity growth approaches. Leave the classroom with a model that you can apply to other companies immediately. Prerequisite: Intermediate proficiency using Excel is required. This Financial Modeling class is a technical workshop. To obtain the desired financial background, the “Corporate Valuation – Relative Valuation” class is highly recommended as a precursor or co-requisite. Level: Intermediate CORPORATE VALUATION – RELATIVE VALUATION 28th October 2008, Tuesday 1:30pm – 6:00pm Learn how to value companies from a relative valuation perspective. This course takes a practical, tangible, and non-theoretical approach to examining how corporations are valued based on market multiples (trading comps). Coverage goes beyond the academic theory of financial ratios to the practical application of relative analysis, offering real-world methods of evaluating a company’s value. Incorporate the concepts learned by immediately working on Excel-based, hands-on exercises. Perform hands-on, interactive, Excel-based valuation modeling techniques through a simplified relative valuation exercise. Input and calculate financial results and analyst projections for comparable companies and calculate current standalone market valuation multiples. Then, construct a summary valuation analysis based on calculated industry valuation trends to derive implied valuation of a target company. In doing so, crystallize and appreciate the capital structure and the relationship between total enterprise value, equity value and price per share. These tools are useful for any financial professional interested in analyzing a company. Prerequisite: Intermediate proficiency using Excel, a solid grasp of basic accounting fundamentals and an understanding of basic valuation techniques are required. This Corporate Valuation class is a hands-on, technical workshop.
