Major Focus of Midterm

  • Basic finance principles discussed so far:

    • Goal is to maximize shareholders’ wealth

    • Corporate governance developed to achieve goal

    • Wealth is the present value of consumption and wealth is increased with positive NPV projects

    • Value is the present value of cash flows at the risk adjusted discount rate

  • Cash, time, risk determine value


Principles and techniques l.jpg

Principles and Techniques

  • Six present value formulas are techniques needed to estimate values and accounting for timing

  • Applications of simple present value formulas are used as techniques to value fixed-income securities since cash flows are contractually specified

  • Stock (equity, share) values do not have fixed cash flow patterns but formulas useful in studying stock values and P-E ratios


Estimating future cash flows l.jpg

Estimating Future Cash Flows

  • A financial decision to invest is analyzed in terms of its impact on incremental cash flows

  • Revenues, costs, taxes, working capital, and capital expenditures are the important elements of cash flows for business decisions

  • Revenue and operating assumptions are necessary to estimate each of these elements
