9780071628853: Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft Excel (McGraw-Hill Finance & Investing)

Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® visualizes spreadsheets as an effective management tool both for financial analysis and for coordinating its results and actions with marketing, sales, production and service operations, quality control, and other business functions.

Taking an integrative view that promotes teamwork across corporate functions and responsibilities, the book contains dozens of charts, diagrams, and actual Excel® screenshots to reinforce the practical applications of every topic it covers. The first two sections— Financial Statements and Cash Budgeting— explain how to use spreadsheets for:

  • Preparing income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements
  • Performing vertical and horizontal analyses of financial statements
  • Determining financial ratios and analyzing their trends and significance
  • Combining quantitative and judgmental techniques to improve forecasts of sales revenues and customer demands
  • Calculating and applying the time value of money
  • Managing inventories, safety stocks, and the allocation of resources

The third and final section—Capital Budgeting— covers capital structure, the cost of capital, and leverage; the basics of capital budgeting, including taxes and depreciation; applications, such as new facilities, equipment replacement, process improvement, leasing versus buying, and nonresidential real estate; and risk analysis of capital budgets and the potential impacts of unforeseen events.

Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® takes a broad view of financial functions and responsibilities in relation to those of other functional parts of modern corporations, and it demonstrates how to use spreadsheets to integrate and coordinate them. It provides many insightful examples and case studies of real corporations, including Wal- Mart, Sun Microsystems, Nike, H. J. Heinz, Dell, Microsoft, Apple Computer, and IBM.

Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® is the ideal tool for managing your firm’s short-term operations and long-term capital investments.

From the Back Cover:

Executive guidance for enhancing business management through spreadsheets

Learning from spreadsheet models is cheaper, faster, and less hazardous than learning in the real world. Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® contains numerous examples demonstrating how to use spreadsheet models to help you manage more effectively under a wide range of conditions and assumptions. You’ll learn how to use Excel’s powerful tools to:

  • Perform sensitivity analysis and alert managers to the financial impact of unexpected conditions that might occur
  • Identify the best strategies to maximize profits, minimize costs, and achieve other goals
  • Use Monte Carlo simulation to provide a complete picture of the risks and probabilities of doing business in an uncertain environment

Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® provides practical, real-life examples to help you relate to both the quantitative and qualitative sides of business management. In addition to using spreadsheets for analysis, you will learn how to apply them in management presentations that are convincing, and be able to justify your recommendations.

Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft® Excel® helps you become a better manager and decisionmaker? not just a skilled spreadsheet programmer. In today’s evolving markets, it is a must-have toolbox of skills for every manager.
