Investment in China


This is an interactive multimedia case that details the acquisition of a Chinese company by a Spanish one. In the analysis certain variables are considered that apply to this international context.

After carrying out the valuation a simulator is presented that uses the Monte Carlo method to define the following variables: exchange rate country risk premium and sales. The value of the company and the profitability of the operation are obtained using a probabilistic method running a thousand iterations in which these three variables change following pre-established patterns.

The results of the equity and the profitability of the operation are presented in accordance with their associated probability through interactive charts and graphs.
