OverviewBUSINESS ANALYSIS & VALUATION: USING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, TEXT & CASES, 5E by Krishna Palepu and Paul Healy allows you to undertake financial statement analysis using a four-part framework

(1) business strategy analysis for developing an understanding of a firm’s competitive strategy;

(2) accounting analysis for representing the firm’s business economics and strategy in its financial statements, and for developing adjusted accounting measures of performance;

(3) financial analysis for ratio analysis and cash flow measures of operating; and

(4) prospective analysis. Then, you’ll learn how to apply these tools in a variety of decision contexts, including securities analysis, credit analysis, corporate financing policies analysis, mergers and acquisitions analysis, and governance and communication analysis.

This text also offers one Harvard case per chapter as well as an entirely separate section (Section 4) for additional cases

Business Analysis and Valuation 2e: IFRS Edition

The new edition of Business Analysis and Valuation  by Krishna Palepu and Paul Healy builds on the strong success of the first IFRS edition, providing students with the knowledge of how to use financial statement information to assess a firm’s financial performance, value, and creditworthiness.

The distinctive strengths of this text include a large number of real-world cases used to illustrate theory; the step-by-step analysis methodology, and the extensive discussion of strategy analysis. The presentation of material is based on business analysis before financial analysis, which ensures that financial analysis is approached in a real-world manner and is driven by strategy. The pedagogy is geared toward helping students to develop strong practical skills using current applications and supported by the extra interactive material on the companion website.
