We will learn how to read financial statements and how to use them for decision making.

A primary tool we will use is ratio analysis. Ratio analysis is a very useful skill in a wide area of topics, and financial analysis is a great place to learn the skill.

Ratios are necessary when measuring performance, including most any job performance. For example, we must apply ratio analysis when measuring the job performance of sports athletes. Similar ratio analysis will apply to most any job performance, and also apply to the performance of corporations.

Once we analyze the past performance of a corporation, we can use this knowledge to predict future performance, helping us make decisions about the company, whether those decisions be investment-related, creditor related, or managerial.

This course will include many example problems using both a presentation format and a spreadsheet format.

Corporate finance is a wonderful tool to learn, improve, and practice Excel or Google Sheets spreadsheet skills. Every spreadsheet practice problem will include a downloadable Excel file, that can be opened with Google Sheets, containing at least two tabs, one with the answer, the other with a preformatted worksheet to be filled in along with a step by step instructional video.

Students: 18880, Price:  Paid

This course will cover the core concepts of corporate finance.

You will know the differences and similarities between the field of finance, accounting, and economics. Accounting is generally using past data to construct the financial statements in accordance with accounting standards. The financial statements are critical to the field of corporate finance but the the focus is different. Corporate finance will generally use data from the financial statements to make forecasts about future performance driving decision making.

Economics is a broader topic about the conditions of a market. Economics is also important to corporate finance because economic conditions must be estimated during the decision making process.

We will be able to list and discuss different forms of business organizations.

Learners will understand the primary financial statements including the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows. The financial statements are one of the primary tools used in corporate finance. They are generated from past data and we use then to make predictions about future performance.

The balance sheet tells us where we stand at a point in time, while the income statement gives us an idea of performance over a time range.

This course will include many practice problem examples, including examples using Excel worksheets. Excel worksheets will be provided that generally have at least two tabs, one with the answer, the other being preformatted allowing learners to work the practice problems in a step-by-step format along with instructional videos.

Ratio analysis helps us project future performance and where the organization may stand in the future.

This course will demonstrate concepts using many practice problems, including problems using Microsoft Excel. Each Microsoft Excel problem will include a downloadable worksheet with at least two tabs, one being the answer key, the other being a preformatted worksheet that can be used to work the problem in a step-by-step format along with instructional videos.

Learners will know what ratio analysis is. They will understand the DuPont System of analysis.

We will demonstrate the concept of return on investment (ROI) and apply it to many scenarios.

The course will demonstrate return on asset, total asset turnover, & profit margin calculations.

We will discuss return on equity and debt to equity ratios and how they can be used.

Learners will understand how to calculate the accounts receivable collection period.

We will also cover times interest earned and fixed charge coverage calculations.

The course will demonstrate return on equity trend analysis.

Each Excel worksheet problem will include a downloadable Excel worksheet that has at least two tabs, one having the answer, the second including a preformatted worksheet that can be populated in a step-by-step process along with the instructional video.

To forecast and budget we need to make predictions and projections about the future. This is often done by first taking information from the past as our starting point. The starting point will generally be our prior financial statements, including our prior balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows.

We will then consider changes that we expect to take place, including those we plan on making and changes to the economy and business environment.

When constructing our budgets will need to go in a systematic order. We usually need to start with a sales projection because other projections will depend on it.

Our budget process can then consider the production plan. We can then move to the capital budget, cash budget, and budgeted income statement. The budgeted income statement is our primary performance statement.

Once we have the beginning balance sheet and the projected income statement, we can create the projected balance sheet, the statement representing where we expect to be at the end of the budgeted time frame.

In this course we will cover the concepts of leverage and break-even analysis from a corporate finance perspective.

Leverage is a critical component of decision making in corporate finance and is an area of debate as to the optimal amount of leverage. Finding the best level of leverage may allow a business to grow much faster.

We will discuss the concepts of operating leverage, financial leverage, and combined leverage and include practical practice problems related to these critical concepts.

Break-even analysis is a fundamental tool in decision making. Learners will understand the concept of break-even analysis, including the tool of breaking costs up by their behavior, labeling them fixed costs and variable costs. Labeling costs by category of fixed and variable can seem unnatural at first, because we often label costs by function, what the cost is designed to do, like operating expenses and cost of goods sold. Labeling cost by behavior helps us see how the cost changes with relation to increases in production level, a useful concept for projecting into the future.

The course will show how to calculate the break-even point and the cash break-even point. We will also discuss the concept of nonlinear break-even analysis.

This course will include many practice problems, often including downloadable Excel worksheets. Each Excel worksheet will have at least to tabs, one with the answer, one with a preformatted worksheet that learners can populate along with step-by-step instructional videos.

This course will discuss company financing decisions from a corporate finance perspective.

Financing is often a critical component to company growth, optimal financing allowing companies to grow much faster while mitigating risk.

We will consider general financing patterns of a corporation.

Financing options can be broken down into short-term financing needs and long-term financing need. To determine financing needs, a company will often have to estimate future sales, future sales allowing them to estimate production levels.

A company may consider production needs from a seasonal perspective or from a level production perspective. In other words, a company that has seasonal sales may attempt to ratchet up production during the busy times of the year or they may choose a level production method. Both production options have pros and cons and have different financing needs.

This course will discuss equipment short term vs long term financing as well as financing strategies related to permanent and temporary assets.

We will have many example problems, some in presentation format and some using Excel worksheets. Each Excel worksheet problem will have a downloadable Excel worksheet with at least two tabs, one with the answer, and another with a preformatted worksheet that you can complete in a step-by-step process along with instructional videos.

Each Excel problem will include a downloadable Excel workbook having at least two tabs, one with the answer, another with a preformatted worksheet you can populate along with the step-by-step instructional videos.

Current asset classes we will consider include cash, accounts receivable, inventory, and marketable securities.

Balancing the asset mix between current assets and long-term assets is critical and helps a company maintain a safe level of liquidity, while maximizing profitability.

Cash management is at the heart of a good current asset strategy, cash being part of every business cycle. Sufficient cash will be needed to pay out obligations as they become due.

Collecting on accounts receivable efficiently can help increase cash flow. Company may use strategies like cash discounts to increase accounts receivable turnover. When using cash discounts, a company needs to compare the benefit of increased cash flow to the cost of the discount.

Finding the ideal level of inventory turnover will also improve performance greatly. A reduction in the period of time inventory is held can reduce holding costs and lesson the chance of spoilage or obsolescence.

We will discuss the concept of a just in time inventory system.

Corporate Finance #9 Valuation-Bond, Common /Preferred Stock

This course will cover the valuation of financial assets including bonds, common stock, and preferred stock.

We will include many example problems, both in the format of presentations and Excel worksheet problems. The Excel worksheet presentations will include a downloadable Excel workbook with at least two tabs, one with the answer, the second with a preformatted worksheet that can be completed in a step-by-step process along with the instructional videos.

The general concept used to value financial assets is to take the present value of future cash flows from the financial asset. Therefore, we will need to use present value concepts and calculations.

The cash flow related to bonds will generally consist of a series of interest payments and a principal payment at maturity of the bond. We can use annuity calculations to determine the present value of the interest payments and present value of one calculation to determine the present value of principal at maturity.

Preferred stock has characteristics similar to bonds in that the payments are often standardized. However, we do not have a maturity date as we do with bonds.

Common stock can be more complex as we consider the future cash flow of dividends in an attempt to value the securities. The common stock dividends are more likely to change over time and we do not have a maturity date as we do with bonds.

Learners will understand accounts payable and trade credit as options from the perspective of short-term financing. A company’s cash management and financing strategy related to accounts payable would generally be to extend payment terms as long as possible without incurring penalties or straining the relationship with vendors.

We will also discuss credit options from a bank and commercial paper financing. When considering short-term credit options from a bank the company will want to consider the cost of the loan, the interest charged. One type of short-term loan is a term loan, credit often extended for one to seven years. Term loans are often repaid in monthly or quarterly installments.

Commercial paper is generally a short-term unsecured promissory note. Usually issued to the public in $25,000 minimum units.

This course will consider collateral as it relates to short-term financing. Collateral generally represents some form of asset securing the loan. Collateral may be used when a bank believes the loan is a higher risk.

We will also discuss accounts receivable and inventory financing.

Types of security markets include money markets and capital markets. Money markets are short-term in nature, with securities that have maturities of one year or less. Capital markets are long-term markets with securities that have maturities greater than one year. Our focus will be on capital markets.

Capital markets help link up businesses that need money to expand with investors who would like to find a good investment for their money.

Investment bankers often act as a middle person between the company issuing securities and the investors, the investment bankers taking on substantial risk as they play their role in the process. Investment bankers design and package securities, make offers, and sell to the public.

Commercial banks differ from investment banks. Commercial banks usually deal with individuals and small companies. They generate revenue from interest on home mortgages and small business loans.

Investment banks take much larger risks. They deal with large companies and high-risk startups. They act as a kind of bridge between the companies and the investors.

Capital intensive industries often need debt financing to grow, the most common form being corporate bonds.

We will compare and contrast debt financing and equity financing, discussing the pros and cons from the standpoint of the corporation and from that of the investor.

The Excel worksheet presentations will include a downloadable Excel workbook with at least two tabs, one with the answer, the second with a preformatted worksheet that can be completed in a step-by-step process along with the instructional videos.

Capital budgeting decisions involve planning for projects and future cash flows extending more then one year into the future. The common example of a capital budgeting decision is the decision to purchase a large piece of equipment that will impact future cash flow for multiple years.

The typical format of a capital budgeting decision often includes a cash out flow a time period zero, resulting in cash inflows, or reduced outflows due to increase efficiencies, over multiple years.

Because capital budgeting decisions impact cash flows for multiple years, time value of money concepts are used, including present value of one calculations and present value of annuity calculations.

The primary tools used in capital budgeting decisions are the net present value calculation (NPV) and the internal rate of return calculation (IRR). Both of these tools utilize time value of money concepts, and we will spend a lot of time with them.

We will also discuss the payback period calculation and the modified internal rate of return or (MIRR).

Time value of money concepts become more and more important as we consider decisions that will extend further into the future.

Time value of money calculation are usually grouped into four categories, present value of one, present value of an annuity, future value of one, and future value of an annuity.

The calculation of time value of money concepts can be performed using different method, the method used generally depending on the circumstances. It is useful to understand all methods, even if we have a preferred one, so we can communicate to others no matter what method they use.

Time value of money calculation methods can be done using mathematical formulas, using tables, or using Excel & financial calculators.

This course will consider multiple methods, comparing them, showing when each may be used and the pros and cons of each.

Corporate Finance 101: Financial Statement Analysis & Ratios

Students: 3258, Price:  Paid

This is a zoom-in, zoom-out, connect-the-dots tour of Financial Statement Analysis

Let's parse that

  • 'connect the dots': Financial Statement Analysis gets a bad rep because its hard to connect the nitty-gritty of the financial statements to the company as a whole. This course makes a serious effort to do exactly that.
  • 'zoom in': Getting the details is very important in corporate finance - a small typo, or a minor misunderstanding can cost a company big. This course gets the details right where they are important.
  • 'zoom out': Details are important, but not always. You probably don't care about the nitty gritty of accounting for contingent liabilities if you don't know what accounts payable are. This course knows when to switch to the big picture.

What's Covered:

  • Corporate Finance Introduced: partnerships, proprietorships and the corporation
  • The Agency Problem: How auditors, the board of directors and the capital markets regulator play a role
  • Financial Statements: Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Statement of Comprehensive Income and Cash Flow Statement at exactly the right level of detail
  • Ratios: Five important types of ratios: liquidity ratios, leverage ratios, turnover ratios, profitability ratios and valuation ratios
  • Dupont's Identity: Return-on-equity can be decomposed into 3 elements: profits, asset-leanness and leverage.
  • External Financing Needed (EFN) and the Sustainable Rate of Growth: How fast can a company grow if it chooses to forgo external funding? Every startup should know this, really.
  • Common Accounting Shenanigans: The playbook of financial statement cheats has been studied by auditors and regulators - learn from history so you are not condemned to repeat it.

Case Studies:

Understanding a company entirely from its investor filings

  • Facebook: Fast-growing and profitable, this is the dream stock right now.
  • LinkedIn: Versatile, but struggling to break through - the jury seems out on LinkedIn
  • Twitter: Bleeding red and slowing growth - Twitter seems to be in trouble.

These practice examples cover capital allocation across investments, working cash management, manufacturing input scheduling, and inventory order management.
