Overview[edit]

The book covers a wide range of aspects relevant to corporate finance, illustrated by examples and case studies. The text starts with explaining basic finance concepts of value, risk, and other principles. Then the issues become more and more complex, from project analysis and net present value calculations, to debt policy and option valuation.
