The format for the presentation and report is as below:

1. Industry overview
2. SWOT analysis of the company
3. Financial statement analysis (ratios, Dupont-type analysis and their trends) over the
past 3-5 years
4. Firm and equity valuation using one or more of the methods discussed in class: DDM,
DCF and Residual Income. You can use analysts' consensus forecasts for coming up
with the value. In case you have used only one valuation method, you have to justify
the choice: in case you have used more than one, suggest which is more appropriate
and justify. Also, show how you arrived at the cost of capital you have used. You may
want to use the Fama French factors on value (HML), size (SMB) as well as
momentum (MOM). The data is available at:
http://mba.tuck.dartmouth.edu/pages/faculty/ken.french/data_library.html.
5. Sensitivity analysis: provide a range of equity values for the companies based on
variation in one or more of the valuation parameters. Discuss the results.
6. Accounting and governance flags: separately discuss accounting quality and any
concerns about the corporate governance of the company.
7. Based on the analysis above, you should have a buy/hold/sell recommendation.
However, I am also looking for how well you have understood the firm's past
performance and what is expected in the future. So try to have some compelling
arguments to support your conclusion - both when you present it to the class as well
as in your report. Comparing and contrasting the two companies is required.

Objectives
The objective of the course is to aware students about the various strategic ways to achieve
superior corporate performance. Many Indian companies have adopted maximising longterm shareholder value as the central corporate objective. Enhancing long-term shareholder

value involves managing costs, driving margins, managing capital structure, and inorganic
growth through acquisitions and divestiture. The course would start with cost management
issues- making students aware that cost consciousness is vital to sustain profitability. Then it
would discuss several value creating strategies- creating shareholder value to unlocking
shareholder value. Finally, we would study the linkage between employee performance and
corporate objective- how employees can be motivated to act as owners.
