Omschrijving This course covers accounting and modelling for M&A and valuation purposes. The two subjects are closely related, because financial models are expressed in the language of ‘accounting’. Financial statements are an important source of information about the industry, strategy, performance and outlook of a company and its competitors. Versatility in financial statements analysis is a crucial capability in M&A and valuation. Themes that are dealt with in particular:
- how EBITDA, a key parameter in a valuation, is influenced by choices in the application of IFRS, e.g. revenue recognition, share based payments, provisions, R&D, pensions and leasing;
- how companies can manage earnings and other instruments that companies can use to hide their true financial performance and position;
- IFRS accounting for M&A and consolidation;
- tools to analyse the financial performance of a company, e.g. value driver analysis and DuPont analysis;
- how to structure financial models in Excell and integrate income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements for various purposes (valuation, LBO, pro forma merger modelling).
