Business Valuation

Using Financial Analysis to Measure a Company's Value (Second Edition)

By Guy Parmentier, Bart Cuypers

What determines a company's financial health and what drives company value? Knowledge about financial analysis and business valuation is not always accessible for non-financial specialists, such as managers with a more strategic focus. Nevertheless, having this intellectual skill-set can leverage one's ability to make better strategic decisions. Therefore, this book has been structured in a way that enables non-specialists to grasp all relevant financial information, using tools that allow efficient financial analysis. For the non-financial experts, the book starts by presenting the essentials of financial analysis and business valuation. More experienced readers may find new perspectives for conducting financial analyses. Professionals who work with relatively 'static' financial data concerning solvability and debt will welcome the more dynamic financial toolset incorporated in the book. This toolset will enable them to get to the heart of the (financial) matter faster by focusing on relevant data. By making the relevant financial analyses, the book provides better insight into a company's value, not just by explaining theory, but by also showing how one can use the output of the financial analyses to challenge the forecasted data that will determine the price one gets or has to pay.
