The Fifth University Edition of Valuation: Measuring and Managing the Value of Companies continues the tradition of its bestselling predecessors by providing up-to-date insights and practical advice on how to create, manage, and measure the value of an organization. This textbook is filled with expert guidance that managers at all levels, investors, and students have come to trust.
New chapters are dedicated to finding the real engines behind value creation, whether it be key management decisions or mergers and acquisitions. The authors have also written a new chapter on corporate finance fundamentals that they feel are missing from everyday business decisions. The university edition contains the same text as the cloth edition, but is well-suited for the college market with its suite of ancillary tools for professors to use in the classroom.
Valuation, University Edition, Fifth Edition remains true to its roots with an extensive discussion on the complexity of measuring corporate performance to assess historical financial results properly and to gain insight into a company's ability to create value in the future (its corporate "health").
