advanced merger modeling - assignment


New solution updates


"Work: Final assignment: please see atatchments The best way to gauge how much work it will be would be to observe the two attachments I have sent. Those are sample finished products of the project. All that you would have to do is select a new target company and fill in the appropriate data into the model that is already given by the sample excel sheet. Due: 2 days strictly Budget: 25$ Document Preview: Your final assignment: You are an investment banker hired by Microsoft. Microsoft wants to expand into new markets and/or grow the customer base/sales or just acquire a company that has a great patents technology you believe can change the industry. You should find a target you believe will be a good fit to achieve these goals or one of the goals. You can focus on one goal or find a company that will cover all of the goals.

My suggestion is to first select the target (after watching the videos in the “DEAL COMMENTARY & PITCHBOOK” folder as explained). Then my suggestion would be to watch the videos in other folders (YAHOO! OPERATIONG MODEL, YAHOO! VALUATION and YAHOO! MICROSOFT MERGER MODEL) and as you watch the videos work on the excel model as the model follows the videos. I think that is the best way to optimize your time -...
