Course Details

The course emphasizes a practical approach to using financial statements to analyze and value a company's business. We will develop a four part framework based on: 1) industry analysis, and how this can be used to understand a firm's competitive position; 2) accounting analysis, to better understand some of the accounting decisions made by management; 3) financial and ratio analysis to check financial health, monitor progress, and locate potential problems, and 4) forecasting and valuation. You will learn how to apply this framework to gain insight in a variety of situations, such as equity investing, credit analysis, capital policy analysis, merger and acquisition analysis, and for corporate governance and communications. The course will rely on a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises based on the most recent financial statements released by Japanese companies. Active class participation is encouraged, especially for case studies. Upon completion, you should gain much confidence in your ability to extract information from financial statements and use this for equity, credit, or other types of analysis.
