Strategic Corporate Finance provides a “real-world” application of the principles of modern corporate finance, with a practical, investment banking advisory perspective. Building on 15 years of corporate finance advisory experience, this book serves to bridge the chronic gap between corporate finance theory and practice. Topics range from weighted average cost of capital, value-based management and M&A, to optimal capital structure, risk management and dividend/buyback policy.
Chief Financial Officers, Treasurers, M&A and Business Development executives, and their staffs will find this book to be a useful reference guide, with an emphasis more on actionable strategic implications, than tactical methodology per se. Board members and senior operating executives may use this book to better understand issues as well as to prompt questions to ask, and frameworks to employ, to get them to the answers they need. Similarly, investors who read this book will benefit from an improved practical understanding of the corporate finance issues, the degrees of freedom in their management, and their impact on company performance and value. Investment bankers and consultants will use this book for training, and as a general reference guide. Finally, students who wish to better understand how their corporate finance knowledge, skills, and tools might be put to use in the real world should read, and re-read, this book.
