Overview

This course will provide delegates with the fundamental building blocks to enable them to read and interpret the financial data relating to their organisation. Starting with how a company is financially structured, how it trades and how it is funded, the workshop will go on to look at the primary financial statements. We will then look at some of the key ratios that will allow delegates to read and interpret the financial information for their organisations. The workshop will examine in detail some of the financial concepts in use within companies such as opex, capex, accruals, prepayments and depreciation before translating these concepts into budgeting and forecasting techniques. Finally we will look at the concepts of investment appraisal (including DCF, NPV, IRR and the WACC) and the fundamentals of asset valuation and the generation of goodwill. Delegates are encouraged to bring the financial statements and their management accounts for their organisations to the course to enable them to relate the concepts covered back to their own companies.
