"Information in the book is clearly presented. A good read which will enable you to approach corporate valuation with confidence." (Lloyd′s List, 4th November 2000) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

Valuation Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies Second Edition The bestseller that opened the eyes of corporate America to the importance of measuring, managing, and maximizing shareholder value is now expanded and updated to help managers boost their company’s value in a vastly altered business climate. In the global economy of the 1990s, investors move their money quickly and easily around the world in search of the greatest return. This expanded edition of Valuation describes the valuation process and explains the differences between valuation and accounting practices in the United States and those in other countries. It illustrates how to take advantage of the American tradition of maximizing shareholder value, demonstrates how value–based management contributes to improved strategic thinking, and shows managers at every level in any corporation how to create value for their companies. In addition, this book provides:
  • A new chapter featuring insights into the strategic advantages of value–based management
  • Strategies for multibusiness valuation, valuation of international businesses, and valuation for corporate restructuring, mergers, and acquisitions
  • International comparisons of the cost of capital, differences in accounting procedures, and how valuation works in different countries
  • A detailed case study showing how valuation techniques and principles are applied
  • A disk featuring a sample valuation model for Lotus 1–2–3 and EXCEL
The accompanying disk provides a unique opportunity to view a company through the eyes of financial experts. The model enables managers to calculate a company’s current value based on forecast assumptions. Numerous analytical reports will help managers evaluate company performance and develop forecast assumptions. Truly the crossroads where corporate strategy and finance meet, this book contains the latest information on new ways to apply valuation and value–based management to maximize any company’s appeal to investors and other capital sources. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I have to strongly disagree with another reviewer who said this was not a good book for professionals. I have used this book professionally for several years and find it very, very valuable. And I have encountered a number of professionals who fail to look at corporate value in a disciplined enough way because they have not learned some of the basic lessons in this book.
Chapters 2, 3, & 4 alone are a thought-provoking essay on how corporations create shareholder value through good planning and execution, or how they destroy it by not paying attention to the basics. Any corporate finance professional, corporate strategist or banker thinking of undertaking (or funding) a corporate acquisition should read this part of the book. Plus, any non-finance professional who wonders what his bankers and corporate finance department are up to should be familiar with this thinking as well.
Much of the rest of the book is a how-to guide that describes how to value companies, and how various moves (such as restructuring, mergers or international expansion) can add or subtract corporate value. Granted, it is at a pretty high level, and if you are actually trying to build a complex valuation model you still have to think through a lot of the detail on your own. But it is inspirational in encouraging the professional to become more serious about valuation, and describes enough of the framework to serve as a very good guide to getting very far down the path. Those who need to get more detailed can find more specialist texts to take them to the next level of complexity.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides excellent information about the DCF Valuation process. The reader will learn how to develop the model and where to input the various data, as well as understand how to justify some of the assumptions such as cost of equity. The disk that accompanies the hardcover addition will be very useful to some practitioners, although analysts with strong modeling skills will likely want to create their own spreadsheet. The book, however, is not a comprehensive guide to valuation, as it does not discuss other methods such as the peer group comparison. Nonetheless, it is an excellent reference book on the topic of DCF Valuation, and it belongs on every financial analyst's desk.

I am an MBA student in the midst of my summer internship trying to calculate the value of an international company. After borrowing this book from a coworker, I am ordering my own. It explains the material that my profesors were unable to impart to me this past year. I have never read a finance related book so clearly written and with plenty of examples to reinforce the concepts. Well organized, easy to read, easy to understand. Buy the book - skip the class!

after reading this book my understanding of value concept has changed compeletely. Real life examples and detailed explanations of models helps you to understand the concepts clearly. Additionally, all models and formulas suggested in the book can be applied easily in excel formulas. In my opinion, each business strategist and consultant and finance managers should read this book. All concepts in the book can be applied to real-life business life.

Format: Paperback
The techniques relied upon are crucial to corporate valuation. Best of all, the book combines these techniques with company strategy and practical examples. Worth reading this in conjuntion with other books, such as M.Porter and B&Myers.
