New Book for Acquisition Finance

This October we are using a new book for our Amsterdam course: Acquisition Finance - Structuring the Deal.  The book is Investment Banking by Joshua Rosenbaum and Joshua Pearl.  The book offers a step by step 'nuts and bolts' guide to valuing and structuring the deal.  The first three chapters review valuation by comparable companies, precedent transactions and discounted cash flow.  Chapters 4 & 5 cover LBOS and the last two chapters view M&A from the sell side and buy side.  It should be fun.  Of course, we will continue to use additional applied cases of actual deals to supplement the text.

A unique feature of our approach is Joe's experience and my academic background.  This produces a combination of sound theory and empirical evidence with lessons from the field.  The book is well suited for this approach.  If the material interests you, we hope to see you there.

All the best,
