The Definitive Guide to Valuing Hard-to-Value Companies: Now Fully Revised for Today¡¯s Financial Markets
Financial professionals have long faced the challenge of accurately valuing companies that are difficult to value using conventional methodologies. Years ago, this challenge was most keenly felt in the dot-com industries, and many professionals fell victim to the dark side, creating values that were simply unsustainable. Now, amidst today¡¯s global financial crisis, the same challenge applies to a far wider spectrum of enterprises and assets, ranging from Asian equities to mortgage-backed securities and financial services firms. Aswath Damodaran has thoroughly revised this book, broadening its perspective to consider all companies that resist easy valuation. He covers the entire corporate lifecycle, from idea and nascent growth companies to those in decline and distress, and offers specific guidance for valuing technology, human capital, commodity, and cyclical firms. Damodaran places special emphasis on the financial sector, illuminating the implications of today¡¯s radically changed credit markets for valuation. Along the way, he addresses valuation questions that have suddenly gained urgency, ranging from Are U.S. treasuries risk free? to How do you value assets in highly illiquid markets?
