Our valuation and financial modeling modules are offered separately or bundled for those seeking to build, compliment or expand their professional skill set.

In this module, we will examine the three main valuation methodologies used in estimating the value of a corporate enterprise: publicly-traded comparables, transaction comparables and a discounted cash flow (DCF). We will further explore the differences between public and private company valuation and how it relates to making either an investment decision (minority stake) or an acquisition (change-of-control investment). We will also introduce a leveraged buyout analysis and how it can provide a fourth, and often more practical, “ability-to-pay” valuation. Finally, we will discuss special situations and approaches in valuing distressed and pre-revenue companies.
