Debt modelling (with LBO)

Category: MASTER COURSE

Discover how to construct a flexible model capable of analysing the suitability of target businesses for a leveraged buy-out.

Who should attend?
Finance professionals who need to create, analyse and interpret simple debt cash flow models. The course is set in the context of an LBO transaction, but is relevant to any form of debt modelling.

What you will gain
During this one-day course, you will construct a debt cash flow model in the context of an LBO transaction. The inputs to the model will be the operating cash flows of a business alongside some typical LBO debt constraints, and via the modelling of the debt cash flows, the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of the transaction will be determined (and subject to a sensitivity analysis). Best practice financial modelling will be applied throughout.

Laptops are provided.
