Exercise – from a given set of cash flows, calculate NPV, IRR; then add the effect of a residual value and a given tax rate
Exercise – from a given set of criteria, perform a lease vs buy analysis
Exercise – from the previous calculations, add an MRA into the calculation and re-calculate the results
Exercise – from a pair of given cash flows and debt profiles, calculate the above and contrast the two deals
Exercise – from previous exercises, perform a risk analysis using the above format
The course is designed to support middle and senior-level employees dealing with financial models from different sources, to enable them to assess risk, profile debt and sensitise modelled data for use in aircraft finance evaluations.
The principal aim of the course is enable participants to assess the cash flow profile, returns and risks in a financing proposal, and use these skills to support credit approvals and reviews. This will be done by reviewing the principles behind the buy vs lease decision, and using tools to highlight areas of risk and to perform sensitivity analysis.
The learning methods used are a combination of the didactic and practical; the principles will be discussed with the aid of examples and new learning cemented effectively through practical exercises. Suggested solutions to each exercise will be provided and discussed, and participants will be encouraged to review their work independently. As the time available is very limited, each section will not be covered in depth, but supporting materials will be available for further in-depth learning and post-training refreshing.
Participants will require a laptop with a USB port.
