Accounting and Business Valuation Methods: how to interpret IFRS accounts By Malcolm Howard [Reup]

Malcolm Howard, «Accounting and Business Valuation Methods: how to interpret IFRS accounts»
Publisher: CIMA Publishing (December 14, 2007) | ISBN-10: 0750684682 | ISBN-13: 978-0750684682 | 312 Pages | PDF | 1.33 MB

This book is intended to appeal to junior accountants and entrepreneurs who need guidance and practical analytical tools to enable them to develop business plans, raise capital and assess risk. Readers can initiate their own business plans by copying over 200 lines of formulae that create a 5 year plan that includes an earnings statement (or profit and loss account), balance sheet and cash flow statement. It will also appeal to students taking accounting and finance modules that cover basic accounting techniques, ratio analysis, investment appraisal, as well as company valuation and share valuation. The book demonstrates with four case studies where practice often differs with theory.
Chapter 1 covers basic book-keeping, showing how accounts are reconciled and controlled covering topics such as the working capital cycle and negotiating techniques. Chapter 2 deals with basic business planning and how to use ratio analysis (performance, asset management, structure, and investment ratios) to assess company performance. Chapter 3 explains that published accounts are based on a series of judgements and the effect the relatively new international financial reporting standards and legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is having on corporate governance. Chapter 4 covers risk assessment and valuing companies. Four case studies bring everything together; how investment trusts are valued, the effect of restructuring on share prices, the difference between serious profit warnings and mere compliance with regulation and hostile takeovers.
Via a thorough analysis of published accounts this book will show readers how to: distinguish between mandatory and optional reports; assess the strength of a company's balance sheet; assess the risk factors associated with investment; assess whether or not the market value of a particular company is justified.
* examines the difference between mandatory and optional reports
* explains how to assess the strength of a companys balance sheet
* looks at how to assess whether or not the market value of a particular company is justified
From the Back Cover
Accounts always tell a story..
In this exciting new book, Malcolm Howard breathes life into balance sheets, incorporating the story of a start-up business, from initial conception to final acquisition. Along the way learn about double entry book-keeping, how to prepare a trial balance, profit and loss account and balance sheet as well as the working capital cycle, asset management and how to negotiate with banks.
The author brings a wealth of experience from both a practitioner and academic viewpoint and four carefully selected case studies from recent years (including the company accounts) show theory put into practice in several high profile companies.
This book offers a detailed guide to the several different methods of ascertaining the value of a business, taking into account the move away from UK GAAP towards International Financial Reporting Standards.
Evaluate the true value of a business by fully understanding the narrative of company accounts with emphasis on the judgement that is required to interpret financial information.

The Business Case for Storage Networks (repost)

Bill Williams, "The Business Case for Storage Networks"
Cis.co Press | 2004 | ISBN: 1587201186 | 264 pages | CHM | 1,2 MB

Understand the business case for storage networks and lower your total cost of ownership with this comprehensive guide
Introduces the benefits of storage networks, providing a comprehensive business case for the adoption and deployment of storage networking solutions
Provides a complete overview of the TCO methodology for storage networks
Summarizes the EVA, NPV, and ROI metrics used to evaluate projects, ensuring their financial success
Outlines the best practices for executing a storage migration strategy
Includes a TCO calculator and decision-making checklist that you can use to assess your decision

When adopting a storage networking solution, you need to understand the business case for your decision. Yet this process is fraught with many business and technical considerations. How will the adoption of a storage networking solution affect your current infrastructure? How will your IT team grapple with the addition of a new technology? How can you turn the cost of your storage network into a business benefit, strengthening your bottom line and paving the way for future success?

Storage networking technologies promise a high return on investment (ROI) and have the potential to reduce the cost of corporate IT functions, which can result in significant savings. The increased efficiency associated with networked storage also promises a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for storage, and a lower, fully burdened cost of storage means greater long-term savings for large and small corporate datacenter environments. SAN technologies also offer increased business continuance capabilities for increased uptime and availability.

The Business Case for Storage Networks covers the problem of direct-attached storage (DAS) and the solutions offered by storage area networks. It details the experiences of IT decision makers and implementers who have deployed SAN solutions to address the formidable problems facing their companies, which are now overwhelmed with expensive, inefficient, and difficult-to-manage DAS solutions. The Business Case for Storage Networks addresses the problems of storage growth and increased consumption, the role of the IT department as a cost center, and how SAN technologies can help save money in the long run, helping you make an informed decision about your storage networking investment.

This volume is in the Network Business Series offered by Cisco Press. Books in this series provide IT executives, decision makers, and networking professionals with pertinent information on today's most important technologies and business strategies.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Good Business Leadership Flow and the Making of Meaning

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Good Business Leadership Flow and the Making of Meaning
Publisher: Penguin Books | ISBN: 0670031968 | 125 pages | 2003 | PDF | 8 MB

Csikszentmihalyi leverages his definition of "flow"—-the capacity for full engagement in an activity—-to create a blueprint for a workplace in which bringing out the best in workers comes before products and profit. When leaders select and reward employees who find satisfaction at work, they can create an upwardly moral organization.
In this view, leadership is a privilege that requires checking ego in the coatroom and peering into the mirror to ask tough questions. For example, "How do I determine if something is right or wrong?" Or, "What is my business doing to benefit human well being?" He offers some inspiring stories from leaders who engage employees to go with the flow, including Body Shop CEO Anita Roddick, Patagonia crown prince Yvon Chouinard, and media mogul Ted Turner. Some of Csikszentmihalyi’s advice will sound familiar. Yet he creates a compellingly fresh vision of good business in both a material and spiritual sense. Ultimately, the success of this book lies in its powerful, non-flaky ability to define corporate soul in terms of a company becoming a stakeholder in an entity larger than itself.--Barbara Mackoff --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Asking business leaders to turn a profit in this climate is tough enough, but psychologist Csikszentmihalyi challenges them to do something even tougher: make people happy. The author first explored flow, the enjoyment felt when an individual is focused on a complex task, in 1991's bestselling Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, and he has often returned to the subject (The Evolving Self; Creativity; etc.). Now he wants to show business leaders how to foster flow and use their psychic energy to enhance the happiness of their employees, customers and even themselves. The advice book offers predictable but sound guidance to business leaders: know oneself, set clear goals for employees and consider the consequences of business decisions. Insightful quotes from figures like Aristotle, Dante Alighieri and John Locke provide some historical grounding, but mostly the author focuses on how modern businesses motivate employees and contribute to the common good. By conducting extensive interviews, the author collects the secrets of successful business leaders, including the Body Shop CEO Anita Roddick; McDonald's chairman and CEO Jack Greenberg; and AOL Time Warner's Ted Turner. Roddick, for example, says that looking at company's lavatories and cafeteria can reveal a lot about a firm's corporate culture and the happiness of its employees. If a firm fails to create a clean, healthy environment for its workers, it probably isn't doing much good. Csikszentmihalyi shows how moral responsibility, respect for the environment and clean bathrooms can make a business good and the whole world better.
