Overview of valuation approaches
Other valuation issues
Valuing commodity companies and sectors
This advanced valuation and modelling course looks at the valuation approaches to be taken to enable participants to value sectors which may be at differing stages of development and growth profiles. Traditional valuation techniques assume a simple two or three stage growth profile and a terminal value or basic multiple based valuation tools. This course looks at some of the more difficult companies to value based on the underlying fundamentals of the sector in which the company operates.
The course covers commodity companies, identifying the issues with sectors such as resources, energy and chemicals companies. As well as discussed some of the current issues with traditional cash flow and multiple based valuation approaches the course will cover more advanced valuation approaches. The course will also consider the role of risk assessment in the valuation process and how macro-economic analysis can affect the valuation approach taken.
Examples are provided to illustrate each issue.
Participants will be required to bring a laptop to the course.
