Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1, Lancaster University, course: MSc Finance, language: English, abstract: The empirical research in this thesis aims to better understand two complimentary components. First, whether there is a significant difference in the performance of accounting-based valuation models when examined across different industry types (i.e. cyclical or acyclical) and economic states (i.e. growth or recession). Second, how analysts use accounting-based valuation to justify investment recommendations and whether this changes across the samples aforementioned.

Praise for the First Edition of Quantitative Business Valuation A Mathematical Approach for Today's Professionals "Jay Abrams' book is close to the equivalent of several graduate dissertations rolled into one book. For each topic (covered), he presents a scholarly summary of past research, new empirical research of his own, and his conclusions. It is a well-documented contribution to in-depth understanding of important business valuation issues, and should not be overlooked by the serious practitioner." —Shannon Pratt, DBAManaging Director, Willamette Management AssociatesCoauthor, Valuing a Business "A must-read for the serious business appraiser." —Jay E. Fishman, ASA, CBAPresident, Financial Research, Inc. "The problem of simplified valuation procedures and coherent theory still remains complex and is ever evolving. Jay Abrams deals very effectively with this complexity through the use of mathematical formulas. Input to his models is explained with clarity and effectiveness, which adds to the overall value of this advanced text on business valuation." —Terry A. Isom, Chairman, National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts "Jay Abrams' book strives to provide mathematical modeling for what practitioners often do by reasoning alone. This book is a must-read for practitioners who are searching for additional techniques for dealing with some of business valuation's imponderables." —David M. Bishop, FIBA, BVAL, ASA, MCBAPresident, American Business Appraisers, Inc. "Jay Abrams' book will not only challenge the top theoreticians in the field; his step-by-step explanations will make advanced quantitative techniques available to the many appraisers who are not capable of independently creating the underlying mathematical analysis." —Kent Osborne, ASAChairman, Editorial Review Board of the American Society of Appraisers "While a proliferation of business valuation treatises and guides exists in the market, most are very general in nature and do nothing more than rehash fundamental concepts. I am unaware of any author who has stepped into the unknown as Jay Abrams has and compiled and developed a treatise of extremely useful analytical tools for the serious valuator." —Robert J. Grossman, CPA/ABV, ASA, CVAPartner, Grossman Yanak & Ford "Jay Abrams develops unusual approaches which merit consideration when 'cookie cutter' methodologies are inadequate. This manuscript contributes to the dialogue among practitioners and strengthens the theoretical foundations of business valuation." —Herbert T. SpiroPresident, American Valuation Group, Inc. "There is no question about it, the use of rigorous quantitative methods is the cure for subjective valuation analysis. This book not only satisfies this need—which has grown considerably in recent years—but is chock-full of new tools that have been carefully developed." —Edward MurrayValuation Partner, Arthur Andersen, LLP

Equity Valuation using Accounting Numbers in cyclical and acyclical Industries

Master's Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Accounting and Taxes, grade: 80,0, Lancaster University (Lancaster University Management School), course: MSc of Accounting & Financial Management, language: English, abstract: The aim of this master thesis is to understand if a firm’s dependency on the over-all business cycle impacts the performance of accounting-based valuation mod-els. I evaluated stock- and flow-based valuation models and their performance across cyclical and acyclical industries and found that multi-period flow-based models perform well for cyclical firms, while acyclical firms are more accurately valued via market multiples (P/E-multiple). In extension of the empirical findings, an analysis of valuation models used in analyst reports points out that practitioners do not necessarily employ the theoretically superior valuation technique to generate their target prices - while practically used and empirically superior valuation models are consistent in acyclical industries, they significantly differ in cyclical industries. Furthermore, the analysis in this master thesis highlights that analysts show the tendency to adopt different valuation models dependent on the actual cycle phase.

Business Valuation Discounts and Premiums There is often more money in dispute in determining the discounts and premiums in a business valuation than in arriving at the pre-discount valuation itself. Discounts and premiums affect not only the value of the company but also play a crucial role in determining the risk involved, control issues, marketability, contingent liability, and a host of other factors that can make or break a deal. It is essential that every appraiser know when discounts and premiums apply and how to quantify them. Shannon Pratt's Business Valuation Discounts and Premiums compiles all the key information you need to successfully and accurately determine discounts and premiums in business valuations. It explores the three areas of discounts and premiums-income valuation, market valuation, and the asset approach-explaining how different discounts or premiums may be applicable, depending on the basic valuation approach used, and how each approach can affect the outcome. Filled with many never-before-published studies, the comprehensive coverage includes: * Strategic acquisitions * Extensive empirical data * Pre-IPO marketability discount studies * Merger and acquisition negotiations, empirical evidence from completed transactions, and positions taken by courts in litigation * Strategic acquisitions on premiums * Studies on minority discounts, available for the first time Written by a recognized authority on business valuation, this book will help you master the complex issues and exploit the numerous uses for premiums and discounts to their utmost. www.wiley.com

In the introduction to the first volume of The Arithmetic of Elliptic Curves (Springer-Verlag, 1986), I observed that "the theory of elliptic curves is rich, varied, and amazingly vast," and as a consequence, "many important topics had to be omitted." I included a brief introduction to ten additional topics as an appendix to the first volume, with the tacit understanding that eventually there might be a second volume containing the details. You are now holding that second volume. it turned out that even those ten topics would not fit Unfortunately, into a single book, so I was forced to make some choices. The following material is covered in this book: I. Elliptic and modular functions for the full modular group. II. Elliptic curves with complex multiplication. III. Elliptic surfaces and specialization theorems. IV. Neron models, Kodaira-Neron classification of special fibers, Tate's algorithm, and Ogg's conductor-discriminant formula. V. Tate's theory of q-curves over p-adic fields. VI. Neron's theory of canonical local height functions.
