Without any argument, Investment Banking is considered as the most glamorous career in financial markets. We consider Investment Banking as an art rather than a science. Investment Banking is all about deal making and deal making involves several skills like a heightened sense of the overall business and financial environment, Equities Analysis, Valuation, Legal Infrastructure and reasonably good negotiation skills.
We will first understand the nuances involved in various types of transactions such as acquisition, mergers, amalgamation, fund raising etc. In this course we will take quick overview of Ratio Analysis and have a detailed understanding of Company Valuation techniques. We will understand how to do a top down analysis of business environment for the company under transaction. We will understand how companies report their earnings and how to read between the lines. We will understand the importance of control premiums and synergies in any Investment Banking deal. We will see how simple measurements like Price Earning Ratios have profound meaning and several interpretations. We will understand how sum of the parts works in such transactions and how to capture and appreciate the big picture. We will also understand some trading related aspects like how to manage large orders and how much and what to expose to market at large. We will also understand the role of debt, leverage and derivatives in much more detail and see how they can play a role in Investment Banking transactions. We will see how balance sheet of one company is used to raise money for another.
We will practically dissect many transactions to understand how they have worked in real life and see why Investment Banking is one of the most sought after professions in financial markets.
Last but not the least; we will focus on some softer aspects like how to negotiate in Financial Markets, how to acquire shares and how to induce passive sellers to sell their stake etc.
