This workbook is designed for use both as a companion to our book, Investment Banking: Valuation, LBOs, M&A, and IPOs, Third Edition, as well as on a standalone basis. Investment Banking focuses on the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street-namely, comparable companies analysis, precedent transactions analysis, discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, leveraged buyout (LBO) analysis, mergers & acquisitions (M&A) analysis, and initial public offering (IPO) valuation from both a sell-side and buy-side perspective.
Our workbook seeks to help solidify knowledge of these core financial topics as true mastery must be tested, honed, and retested over time. We envision the workbook being used as a self-help tool for students, job seekers, andexisting finance professionals, as well as in formal classroom and training settings.
