Summary

For MBA/undergraduate-level courses Advanced Corporate Finance.

The first text devoted exclusively to modern advanced corporate finance, this book provides a comprehensive exploration of theoretical and empirical literature on corporate financial policies and strategies--particularly those of U.S. nonfinancial firms-- defined in rational, economic terms. The text defines corporate financial policies and strategies broadly to include not only 1) managerial decisions regarding the issuance and retirement of debt and equity securities and the firm's overall capital structure, but also decisions regarding issues such as 2) the firm's governance and ownership structures, 3) contracting between a firm and its management, creditors, and other stakeholders, 4) dividends and stock repurchases, 5) mergers, acquisitions, takeovers, buyouts, equity carve-outs, spin-offs, etc., 6) financial distress and its resolution, and 7) risk management and the design of securities. Throughout, application of theory is often shown in relation to financial decisions made by a specific firm.

Features :

  • Early coverage of the bedrock theories of corporate finance--1) theories under ideal capital markets assumptions; 2) theories related to principal-agent conflicts; and 3) information asymmetry theory.
  • Empirical evidence.
  • Illustrates each theory.
  • Case in Point--Numerous mini-cases throughout.
  • Illustrates the practical application of theory by examining financial decisions made by an individual firm.
  • Numerous articles from the financial press--"Real-World Focus."
  • Provides insights from practitioners' points of view.
  • Avoidance of theoretical and mathematical derivations--But provides references to literature where such derivations can be found.
  • Ensures that students don't get bogged down or lose their focus.
  • An abundance of figures and tables.
  • Illustrates both concepts and empirical evidence related to the theories and hypotheses being discussed.
  • Concise chapter summaries.
  • Provides students with a convenient review and assessment tool.
  • Extensive chapter-end questions and problems--Basic Review Questions and Problems; Creative Thinking Issues; Projects and Analyses.
  • Challenges students to develop their analytical, research, and financial decision-making skills by analyzing data statistically, developing a model, analyzing financial decisions, policies, or strategies policies of a specific firm, etc.
  • Exhaustive lists of references--At the end of each chapter.
  • Encourages students to pursue original sources on theories or empirical studies for more information and the nuances inherent in each.
