The second edition of this successful textbook addresses the essentials of the theory and practice of corporate finance in a concise and readable style, and provides the ideal structure for any corporate finance course, particularly where there are time constraints due to modular delivery.
The book provides students with an integrated understanding of the three decision areas in finance- investment, financing and dividends. These themes are introduced in the opening chapter and explored throughout the book with reference to the overall picture given in the Introduction. Finally, three integrated chapters cover mergers and acquisitions, the management of interest rate and exchange rate risk, and international investment decisions. The book is well illustrated and is full of features to help students assimilate knowledge, including-
· Numerous FT case vignettes to bring an authentic feel to the subject
· Learning objectives and key points
· Worked examples
· Short and longer questions with answers
· References to academic literature
· Recommended reading
· A comprehensive glossary of corporate finance terms
· Additional discussion questions with answers, given in a Lecturer's Guide.
