It also shows interactive graphs where the students can analyze the effects of equity beta asset beta and the financing mix of the company on the WACC and the NPV. These graphs are complemented by several exercises.
At the end of the tutorial a simple practical case about the correct procedure to use for calculating the WACC when a company is going to float on the stock market is included. This section is complemented by links to websites where the financial information needed to complete the exercise can be found (equity betas from different sectors and their financing mix).
INVESTING WITH TALENT DF2-123-I
This material, which is introduced with a biblical parable comparing today’s shareholders and managers to the protagonists of the parable, explores different alternatives to invest investors’ wealth. It explains the theoretical underpinnings of investing with talent and emphasizes that the manager must make investments that increase the investors’ wealth more than they could do on their own. Using the example of the Gemini project, the case walks students through the methods frequently used by finance directors to figure out if the Gemini project or an alternative would be the most profitable. To do so, it covers forecasts, free cash flow on operations, future value, NPV, IRR and ARR and then wraps up by analyzing the Gemini Project by applying the various methods.Academic Area:Finance
