Advanced Corporate Finance and Valuation Excellence with Dr. Edward Bodmer

April 22-23, Bengaluru | April 25-26, Mumbai


Practical techniques to develop better valuation analysis with more flexible, accurate and structured models.

Developing an efficient and accurate valuation model that is theoretically valid, well structured, flexible and accurate is essential for any professional in finance. Unfortunately, many corporate finance models are biased, clumsy and inflexible rendering the whole valuation process at best meaningless. Taught by Edward Bodmer, a global leader in financial modelling, the intensive 2-day modelling valuation and modelling program will inform finance executives, accountants, financial consultants, and investors on innovative valuation and modelling techniques.

  • Development of enterprise valuation analysis that allows for flexible start dates; flexible terminal dates and holding periods; and different terminal valuation approaches.
  • Calculation of financial statements through adding financial routines with a cash flow waterfall to the model in debt and cash balance schedules and using the model to establish a target capital structure.

Session 3: Innovations in Corporate Finance Theory

  • Development of Terminal Valuation Techniques for Financial Institutions that Use Market to Book Ratio and ROE from Financial Models
  • Evaluation of Political Risk Premiums from Computing Implied Probability of Default 
Session 1: Valuation Using Corporate Model
  • Demonstrate financial theory associated with multiples, terminal value and credit analysis using financial models.
  • Demonstrate variability in enterprise value and use of the return on invested capital to evaluate the reasonableness of the EBITDA assumptions.
  • Development of normalised working capital changes, normalised depreciation expense, normalised capital expenditures and normalised deferred taxes that vary as a function of different terminal growth rates and incorporate derived historic growth rates. 
Session 2: Advanced Valuation and Multiples
  • Computation of P/E and EV/EBITDA multiples from growth rates, cost of capital, returns, tax rates and asset life as well as transition periods of each value driver and demonstration of problems with the (1-g/ROIC)/(WACC-g) formula.
  • Evaluation of which balance sheet items should be included in the bridge between equity value and enterprise value through creating long-term models that prove whether items should be included in free cash flow or as an adjustment to enterprise value.
  • Calculation of value from equity cash flow rather than free cash flow and derivation of equity multiples (P/E or market to book) to evaluation how multiples are affected by return and growth forecasts in the model
Session 3: Innovations in Corporate Modelling
  • Use of Historic Switch to Make Incorporation of New Financial Statements
