This course adopts the standpoint of the user of financial accounting information, taking the firm's financial statements, notes and other accompanying information as a basis for understanding the firm's past business activities and forecasting its future business activities. From the perspectives of (external) equity investors and financial analysts as well as creditors (banks, rating agencies), it will cover traditional financial ratios as well as basic forecasting and equity valuation techniques in order to develop a fundamental assessment of a firm's profitability, financial stability and prospects, thereby ultimately assessing firm value. Because the focus of this course is on analysis and valuation from a financial accounting perspective, it will adopt a specific accounting perspective on the valuation and forecasting process.
