This textbook is called Strategic Corporate Finance because it includes not only the theory and key areas of corporate finance and the range of techniques that may be used and applied in practice, but also the appropriate financial strategies that may be adopted in order to optimise the use of the scarce resource of money (or cash flow).

One of the main objectives in writing this book was to produce a clear and user-friendly text, which embraces both the core principles and practice of corporate finance and also financial strategy.

The text comprises 18 chapters, and is structured into two parts: corporate finance, and financial strategy.

Key Features include:

Step-by-step Worked Examples in every chapter, which apply the appropriate techniques to deal with specific business problems; extensive diagrams and charts are used to reinforce learning.

Comprehensive Progress Checks in every chapter facilitate effective learning and provide frequent reinforcement.

6 Case Studies illustrate strategic corporate finance issues in practice, providing the opportunity to apply and develop the techniques, analytical skills and judgement acquired from working through each chapter.

A range of about 15 to 20 graded Exercises, Questions and Discussion Points per chapter link theory with business practice and encourage the use of the techniques and learning points covered in each chapter.

Press Extracts offer insights into real-life business scenarios and include companies such as BSkyB, Marks & Spencer, Umbro, Matalan and Samsung, and provide further links between theory and practice.

A comprehensive Glossary of Financial Terminology with easy reference to when each key term is first used in the book.
