Financial Modeling and DCF Modeling
Intermediate Proficiency Using Excel Required

Learn how to model and build a five-year Income Statement projection model from scratch for valuation purposes or for analyzing mergers and acquisitions. You will be provided with a 10K (Annual Report) and a list of advanced Excel shortcuts and customized macros. With a focus on incorporating and fusing your accounting knowledge into the mechanics of Excel, you will input publicly available information and learn various shortcuts to construct a five-year income statement projection model from revenue down to earnings per share. Combined with your knowledge of the basics of corporate finance and valuation, you will translate the model into a discounted cash flow analysis. In addition, you will build and analyze current market valuation and multiples analysis at various prices including proper way to treat and account for dilutive options. Leave the classroom with an easily scalable and customizable model that can be immediately applied to other companies.

Prerequisite: Intermediate proficiency using Excel and a sold grasp of basic accounting, finance and valuation fundamentals are required. This Financial Modeling class is a technical workshop.
