Both executives and expert practitioners of business law routinely encounter financial issues, such as capital structures, the valuation of businesses and financial claims, and the relationship between firm value and the contractual environment. Although the successful management of such matters is of high strategic importance and can have extensive impact, many of these encounters take place without a firm understanding of corporate finance basics.

Internationally renowned professors, Bo Becker and Per Strömberg, lead this highly interactive and intensive program designed to give you as a participant a solid foundation in corporate finance in a short time with a specific focus on practical applications. After the program, you will have a deeper understanding of corporate finance terminology and will be able to use financial analysis in a professional, competent way. You will also have developed your judgment when it comes to matters of valuation and capital structure.

Program content

The main topics covered during the two days are:
– The fundamentals of valuation: cash flows, discounting and multiples.
– Capital structure theory: how do firms choose capital structures and why?
– Financial contracts: the relationship between financial contracts (covenants, optionality, control rights) and business context.
– M&A and other transactions: synergy valuation, the role of distress in motivating capital structure choices.

The program is highly interactive and requires certain preparation by participants. Please download the brochure for more details.
