About the book

Corporate finance is central to almost every major decision a company takes and yet, due to its complexity, it is only vaguely understood by the majority of company directors and corporate decision-makers.

This jargon-free handbook provides a practical guide to the intricacies of corporate finance in a form that is easily accessible to hard-pressed CEOs and their boardroom colleagues, and is particularly relevant to middle-market UK companies.

Fully revised and updated, this new edition of The Corporate Finance Handbook offers authoritative advice on financing issues related to growth and acquisition, debt restructuring, private and public equity, export expansion, risk management and improving cash flow. It will give senior executives all they need to know both to manage their business finances creatively and to deal effectively with banks, investors, accountants and professional advisers.

A wide range of expert contributions includes advice on:

-financing growth;
-debt and structure finance;
-private equity markets;
-MBOs (and buy-ins);
-flotations;
-mergers and acquisitions
-management issues in generating investment
