Can you please explain your reasoning of why you choose those numbers? Like I said, I understand that it is a subjective process and that there... Read More

Minority Interest
Why is this thought of as Debt? Wouldn't it be more accurate to think about minority interest as another form of equity? They participate in ownership of the assets on the consolidated balance sheet, as well as the earnings on the consolidated income statement. It's more of an ownership, so they par... Read More

Five questions (merger premiums, capex, leveraged beta, etc.)
1. Do merger of equals usually have premiums paid close to zero? 2. Page 41, to calculate Unlevered Free Cash Flow, it is used net capital expenditure, but to calculate Unlevered Free Cash Flow in the Hilb, Rogal & Hamilton case, it is used capital expenditure instead. Why? 3. When do you use... Read More

Corporate Valuation: DCF valuation
Just a quick question,, is it fair to conclude that the DCF Valuation is the most important method and the most popular one used by firms? At least, as a Beginning point to the valuation process? Thanks, Noor

Total debt when calculating enterprise value
When we calculate enterprise value, the total debt includes long term debt and current portion of long term debt. However, when looking at the SEC, there are "shortterm obligations" and "other liabilities" under liabilities. My questions is, how do we determine what to include a... Read More

MI and DCF valuation

Are these the correct adjustments/impact if my consolidated P&L and BS factors in MI already? 1. WACC is build up from ratio of debt and e... Read More

Classification: am I right to say that the redeemable portion is temporary equity hence on the > statement of equity: the net income number that shows up is after subtracting the temporary equity portion? > balance sheet: only nonredeemable portion of non controlling interest shows up under shareholder's equity? where does the redeemable portion show up in balance sheet? 2. When calculating TEV: do you add the whole non controlling interest (both redeemable and nonredeemable)? 3. In the case of a non controlling stakeholder that holds a redeemable stake, can you explain how it flows through the financial statements in the case when he redeems? Say his stake is worth $10. If he redeems this over 5 year period say $2 per year, then in a. Year 0  reclassify redeemable non controlling interest into liability: this $10 becomes amount owed to the holder under liabilities ($2 under account payable as it is payable in a year) whereas remaining $8 is under other long term liabilities (payable in future after 1 year lapsed). On cashflow statement, you have increase in payable of $2 so additional cash under CFO so net change is +2. no change in CFI and CFF. On BS you have on the current liability side +2, other long term liability +8, and under retained earnings 10 so no change in asset. Is this correct? b. Year 1  you start expensing $2 (assume stays the same but this could have fluctuated year on year depending on the performance of the firm that minority shareholder has a stake in) P&L: 2 under interest expense or other expense so after tax of 40%, net income is $1.2 CFS: under CFO, 1.2, and since payable is down 2 this year so net CFO cash is 3.2 ,under CFI and CFF  no change. Balance sheet: asset side: cash 3.2 and liability side 102=8, equity side =1.2 (from net income), so asset side is 3.2 and liability+equity = 81.2 = 6.8 QUESTION: this is not balancing, what is wrong here? 4. what is the risk with a firm with a huge noncontrolling interest as part of the net income eg 50% of net income from from noncontrolling interest in general (whether there is redemption or not)?
