Business Valuation is the process of determining the worth of a firm, and it is fundamental to the operation of the capital markets as it forms the basis of share trading and corporate finance activities including capital raising, mergers, acquisitions, de-mergers and disposals. Since companies are valued in the context of the broader stock market, it is necessary to revisit the valuation tools used by analysts using the lens of the effect of the pandemic on both internal and external factors that determine prices.
This course will equip participants with an understanding of the effects of the ongoing pandemic on the value of businesses and valuation methods. It will also help participants to build a solid conceptual foundation and apply this in practice through hands-on case studies, group discussions, and exercises.
