Capital Structure (LBO) Modeling
This hands-on course focuses on the skills required to build and incorporate a complex capital structure into a financial model. Participants will recapitalize a company’s balance sheet and then forecast specific pieces of debt and equity so that the model can be used for credit purposes or as a Leveraged Buyout (“LBO”) model.
This course builds on "Building a Financial Model (of a Company)", so participants may want to complete that course prior to taking the "Capital Structure (LBO) Modeling" session.
