Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FINANCE FOR EXECUTIVES: MANAGING FOR VALUE CREATION, 3e is ideal for the future manager or experienced executive who recognizes the importance of using financial information to maximize firm value. Respected authors Gabriel Hawawini and Claude Viallet have translated their wealth of experience into a concise, analytically sound introduction to financial management that is neither too simplistic nor too theoretical. Based on modern finance principles, the book presents the most recent financial data and latest references with a level of practicality and rigorous analysis appropriate for today's experienced executive - without complicated formulas that have no direct application to decision making. Each chapter is self-contained - providing ultimate flexibility for teaching and making the book an excellent source for reference or self-learning beyond the traditional classroom. This book is perfect for executive education, executive MBA courses, or any course where you want to translate theory into practice or use a case approach. A strong problem-scenario approach presents concepts within the context of financial management problems that executives commonly face. In addition, consistent case studies analyze the same set of companies throughout the text to provide a common thread that reinforces learning.

Book News Annotation:

An introductory text written specifically for executives involved with financial matters and financial management, intended to fill the gap between introductory accounting and finance manuals for non-financial managers and advanced texts in corporate finance. Material emphasizes rigorous analysis but avoids complicated formulas that have no direct application to decision making. Mathematical derivations of formulas are given in appendices. Most chapters are self-contained. Coverage includes balance sheets and income statements, financial diagnosis and management, investment decisions, financing decisions, and business decisions. Includes a glossary and review problems. The authors are affiliated with the European Institute of Business Administration. This second edition includes new case studies.

Table of Contents

"The unique aspect of this text is its acceptance that there is some validity to financial statements and [their] managerial focus. Chapters 3, 4, and 14 are unique contributions that are important for the type of course I teach which focuses on a managerial rather than theoretical approach to the topics.""This chapter (Chapter 10, Estimating the Cost of Capital) is always a difficult area for students to understand. I think the authors have done a commendable job in not making the discussion too technical.""This chapter (Chapter 10, Estimating the Cost of Capital) is always a difficult area for students to understand.
