Capital is a scarce resource. Access to capital and its efficient use are critical to business success. This course discusses how capital can be raised and allocated within corporations to the advantage of corporate shareholders. Topics include: allocation of capital for investments, measurement of the opportunity cost of capital, capital structure, cash-distribution policy, corporate restructuring, and long-term financing. At the end of course, you will know how to value a company. On the way the topics we shall cover those that are important to all managers whether or not they specialize in finance: (1) procedures for analyzing companies’ financial data to determine how efficiently they have been run; (2) methods for projecting funding needs based on principles of good working capital management; (3) rules for choosing the maximal safe, or optimal, level of debt in the structure of capital used for funding company operations; (4) figuring the costs of the various types of funds that a company uses and its weighted average cost of capital; and (5) combining all the foregoing into a methodology, to wit, discounting free cash flows and adding salvage value, for establishing a company’s value or price.
