Boot Camp Overview
This boot camp is an intensive instructor-led training program where trainees learn financial and valuation modeling in Excel using an intuitive, step-by-step approach. Participants will use real case studies to build financial models from scratch the way it is done at financial institutions. The program is a synthesis of Excel modeling, navigating through various financial reports, and the application of accounting, corporate finance, and valuation courses.
Financial Statement Modeling
You will develop a 3-statement model completely from scratch, inputting historical data and assumptions to project out financial statements by selecting, locating, and developing appropriate projection drivers.
Participants learn how to value the company step-by-step, including how to estimate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) in the real world, how to implement commonly used approaches to calculating terminal value, and how to use data tables to analyze a broad range of scenarios given different assumptions.
Participants will build a merger model in Excel to reflect the pro forma impact of various acquisition scenarios. Key topics covered include a quick test of accretion / dilution in all-stock deals, pricing structures (exchange ratios, collars, "walk-away" rights), purchase accounting, and the step-by-step allocation of purchase price.
