The M&A environment has never been more unforgiving, as target companies work harder than ever to maximize their worth, and acquiring companies fight to avoid overvaluation—the "winner's curse." In Valuation- Avoiding the Winner's Curse, two leading practitioners offer a hands-on, practical guide to valuation as it's practiced right now. The authors focus on the most crucial issues you face in valuing companies, offering expert advice and proven "rules of thumb" you simply won't find elsewhere.
The authors introduce and illustrate both traditional and alternative valuation models, drawing on recent experience to illuminate the key accounting, reporting, and tax issues you must face in order to value a company accurately. They walk through several examples and case studies, including Eli Lilly, Quaker Oats, and Air Products and Chemicals-and clarify many key points with actual data for the Nokia Corporation.
Whether you've moved valuation in-house or you're scrutinizing the work of your outside consultants far more closely, Valuation- Avoiding the Winner's Curse gives you crucial skills for minimizing risk-and maximizing shareholder value. "The new economy-creation machine of U.S. venture capital in the last decade has resulted in a lot of stranded technology assets. Consolidation and rationalization has stepped in to address the overly productive results of technology creation, but extreme caution should be used here. Valuation is one of the most essential determinants for separating road kill from productive assets. Valuation- Avoiding the Winner's Curse should be required reading for any manager and analyst concerned about valuation issues. It clearly presents the relevant issues that are just beginning to become evident to the larger community and does so by informing and educating the reader in a clear, concise, and easily understood manner." —Samuel May, Senior Research Analyst, U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffray"Overall the quality of exposition is very high. There is a nice mix ofvaluation from a pure finance view as well as accounting issues that comeinto play but are often ignored by other books on valuation. The level ofdetail is not so much as to be overwhelming."—Scott Smart, Clinical Associate Professor of Finance, Indiana University
