Art of M&A Valuation and Modeling: A Guide to Corporate Valuation

Book Description

An M&A “dream team” of experts explains how to conduct due diligence in the first, most important step in the process—determining exactly what a company is worth

"What's it worth?" Valuation is the common thread that unifies every M&A transaction, regardless of a company's industry, financial condition, or stage of development. The Art of M&A Valuation and Modeling bridges the gap between M&A valuation in theory and as an appraisal practice. It shows how to perform objective analyses, address all parties’ subjective interests in the transaction, and use practical financial models to complete a smooth transaction that benefits everyone.
