Since the first of its ten editions appeared in 1963, Erich Helfert's seminal Techniques of Financial Analysis has provided business students as well as financial practitioners with a concise and practical overview of financial analysis tools and concepts. What sets this classic text apart then, and continues to distinguish it today, has been its focus on the continuous interrelationship between management decisions and the economic value of a business, explained in a unique systems context.

Financial Analysis: Tools and Techniques adapts this seminal reference to today's fast-changing professional market and establishes a new benchmark for direct, concise, and practical financial analysis information and interpretation.

Specifically addressing key analytical needs in the tumultuous twenty-first-century business environment, it comments on valuable business applications of the tools and concepts with insights from Erich Helfert and his consulting clients.

Providing focused analyses of the economics of business investments and valuation, presenting discussions of cash-flow trade-offs and time-value analysis against the strategic backdrop of the business system, and emphasizing enhancement of shareholder value through value-based management (VBM), Financial Analysis: Tools and Techniques will help all nonfinancial managers to make sound investment, operating, and financing decisions. Concise yet sufficiently detailed, it covers the full range of financial analysis issues, including:

Managing the business as a system

Financial statements

Funds cycles for manufacturing, sales, and service

Cash management

Ratio analysis and performance

Pro-forma financial statements

Financial modeling


Financial growth plans

Time value of money

Analysis of investment decisions

Using return standards

Cost of capital

Financing choices

Definitions of value

Shareholder value and value-based methodologies
