Learn how to build a financial model for mergers and acquisitions from the bottom up.

In this course, you will look at both the acquirer and target stand-alone models, and address the assumptions that drive this analysis and financial model. Your model will integrate the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow, and supporting schedules for the entire combined business.


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • build your own model
  • assess the impact of the transaction through accretion/dilution analysis
  • analyze how the transaction impacts the implied share price
  • perform sensitivity analysis
  • explain how a change in assumptions impacts future outcomes of the merger or acquisition
