This set of CPE courses moves from traditional financial reporting, interpretation, and analysis to consideration of non-financial objectives in the larger context of key stakeholders and Integrated Reporting methods. The course identifies the three key decisions in financial strategy and considers the factors involved in the decision process of using various debt and equity financing methods. Additionally, there are considerations for risk management, capital structure, ratio analysis, and the effects of dividend policy on shareholders. Finally, the course investigates mergers and acquisitions, and looks into factors such as tax implications, competition authorities, and divestment. Next, it scrutinizes business valuation and methods used to calculate such values. The course concludes with the nature of mergers and acquisitions, the various stages of negotiating, planning, and dealing with hostile and in-house bids.
