In the constantly evolving world of finance, a solid technical foundation is an essential tool for success. Until the welcomed arrival of authors Josh Rosenbaum and Josh Pearl, no one had taken the time to properly codify the lifeblood of the corporate financier’s work through the essential lens of an investment banker. With the release of Investment Banking, Third Edition: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts, and Mergers & Acquisitions, Rosenbaum and Pearl once again have written the definitive book that they wish had existed when they were trying to break into Wall Street. The Third Edition includes both the technical valuation fundamentals as well as practical judgment skills and perspective to help guide the science. This book focuses on the primary valuation methodologies currently used on Wall Street: comparable companies analysis, precedent transactions analysis, discounted cash flow analysis, and leveraged buyout analysis.
The new edition will include two new chapters on Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), as well as edits throughout that reflect changes in the M&A and financing environment. The Workbook and Focus Notes will also require updates for the new IPO chapters and new market dynamics.
