Description of Finance for Executives: Managing for Value Creation: 4th Editon


Key Features


  • The Fourth Edition includes an entirely new chapter on managing corporate risk, which provides a comprehensive framework for this essential topic and explores corporate risk management within the context of creating value--the core objective of the entire text.
  • The chapter devoted to company valuation has been completely revised based on the concept of"enterprise value," which has surged in popularity and gained widespread use among financial analysts, making it an important standard for informed executives to master.
  • A new set of companies--The Home Depot, Inc., and Lowes Companies, Inc.--are now featured in a series of integrated examples that provides a step-by-step illustration of how to perform a financial analysis using key concepts and tools presented in chapters two through five.
  • Every chapter has been extensively updated to reflect the latest financial information, as well as current trends, issues, and tools essential for today's successful executives and leading financial analysts
  • The new edition includes expanded coverage of raising capital and the valuation of financial securities, offering additional insights and greater depth to help students master these important topics
  • This well-balanced text emphasizes rigorous analysis but avoids complicated formulas that have little direct application to decision-making. As such, the text fills a critical gap between overly simplistic introductory accounting and finance manuals for non-financial managers and more advanced texts in corporate finance, which can become bogged down in minutiae
  • The text is organized around the underlying principle that firms should be managed to create value for their owners, a concept that is introduced in the first chapter, which also outlines the structure of the text and explains how each chapter and major topic relates to the central theme of value creation.
  • The authors have extensive expertise in finance and have based much of the text on courses they have taught to more than 2,000 successful managers and executives around the globe.
  • Each chapter is self-contained, providing optimal flexibility for instructors and making the text an ideal resource and reference students are likely to find useful throughout their careers.
  • Topics are presented using a"problem-scenario" approach, which provides the context of a financial management problem that executives are likely to face on a day-to-day basis, making the material much more useful and meaningful for students
