Corporate Finance

Theory and Practice

by Vishwanath, S R

Description
This—revised and enhanced—book examines the role of finance in supporting other functional areas while fostering an understanding of how financial decisions can create value. Corporate Finance covers areas related to estimating divisional cost of capital; executing a financing strategy; establishing debt and dividend policies consistent with the company`s strategy and environment; choosing between dividends and stock repurchases; managing high growth and managing working capital. Its new topics include:

- Corporate Financial Flexibility (Real options)
- New Financial Instruments
- Project Finance
- Acquisitions and Control
- Performance Measurement and Incentive Compensation

The goal of this book is to provide a thorough understanding of how and why firms make their financial decisions the way they do and their impact on shareholder value. The central theme of the book is Value Based Management, which assumes that maximizing shareholder value is the governing objective of a firm.

Each chapter of this new edition has detailed and real-life cases to help students easily understand and grasp concepts. The author has also provided the case-map of the Harvard Business School to make this book more user-friendly in classrooms.

The inclusion of several new topics/cases, extensive pedagogical tools and a finance-for-non-finance approach make this book ideal for MBA/CA/CFA/ICWA students and executive education programs.
