Product Description

From the Back Cover

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.
New to this edition- A website dedicated to this book providing additional resources, including self-assessment exercises and questions, further FT articles of interest, and links to other relevant websites and institutions.
Corporate Finance- Principles and Practice is suitable for specialist and non-specialist corporate and business finance courses at undergraduate, DMS and MBA/management Master's level.

Format: Paperback
Economics and finance are not the easiest subjects to understand (well not for me anyway! ). Having looked at all the US finance texts, most of which ressemble the London phone book, it was a relief to find a book that explains the principles of finance in an easy to understand fashion and that gradually introduces you to the more advanced topics. The chapters flow in a logical manner and I found myself almost enjoying studying finance! Finding a book that balances readability and depth is often hard but this book does.

Although a little long-winded in places, this is a good reference book for anyone wanting a slightly more than basic understanding of various corporate finance concepts, talking about derivatives, hedges, ratios etc. It was certainly useful to me obtaining an A in a module in it at university!
