Digital Finance Value Creation


Course Overview

For the past several years, investors have once again been piling into shares of companies with fast growth and high uncertainty—especially Internet and related technologies. The rapid rise of many such stocks, underpinned by the digital transformation acceleration as a result of Covid-19, raised questions about the disconnect in the stock market that appeared to assign higher value to companies the more their losses mounted.

The module aims to provide more precise valuations critical to investors, and how to adapt well-established valuations principles for high-growth companies and tech start-ups. The core principles of economics and finance apply even in uncharted territories.

Participants will learn about value creation concepts, understand valuation techniques including a recent IPO valuation case-study to solidify the key takeaways.

  • Understand shareholder value creation and the core value principle
  • Analyze valuation techniques for high growth companies and start-ups
  • Solidify key takeaways using a recent IPO case study
