Summary

Foundations of Financial Management is a proven and successful text recognized for its excellent writing style and step-by-step explanations to make the content relevant and easy to understand. The text's approach focuses on the ''nuts and bolts'' of finance with clear and thorough treatment of concepts and applications. There is a strong real-world emphasis presented throughout. This text has definitely stood the test of time due to the authors' time, energy, and commitment to quality revisions. In addition to completing the textbook revisions, the authors also revised ALL end of chapter problems and complete the solutions themselves. Block and Hirt know what works and what doesn't work for students, and they have consistently maintained a high quality textbook that is responsive to the demands of the marketplace.

New Features
  • The 12th edition has continued to provide updated real-world examples, using companies easily recognized by students to illustrate financial concepts in the text.
  • There is a listing of selected Real-World Examples and Boxes among the front matter for easy reference.
  • New Practice Problems and solutions—two practice problems are featured at the end of each chapter. The problems review concepts illustrated within the chapter and enable the student to determine whether the material has been understood prior to completing the problem sets. Detailed solutions to the practice problems are found immediately following the problem.
  • Expanded Finance in Action boxes. Boxed readings highlight specific topics of interest that relate to four main areas: managerial decisions, global situations, technology issues, and ethics (new). Given the corporate scandals and resulting corporate governance issues, the addition of ethics as a new area strengthens the relevancy.

  • The use of technology to manage the investments in working capital added to Chapter 6. The authors discuss the use of sophisticated computer procedures to monitor the investment in inventory as an illustration of the integration of technology into financial management.
  • The use of technology to manage the investments in working capital added to Chapter 6. The authors discuss the use of sophisticated computer procedures to monitor the investment in inventory as an illustration of the integration of technology into financial management.
