Critical Acclaim
‘This book does a great job reviewing the most important aspects of corporate finance written in an accessible manner for a wide audience. Non-finance managers that need to grasp the basics, as well as finance-trained folks who simply need a refresher, and all those in between, will benefit from this book.’
– James Linck, Southern Methodist University, US

‘In this book, two of the world's most distinguished financial economists summarize the current academic thinking on three major financial policy questions that face all public companies: How do we value our investment opportunities? How do we finance those investments, primarily with debt, equity, or some combination thereof? And how do we decide when to return capital to our shareholders, and whether mainly through dividends or stock buybacks?’
– Don Chew, Editor, Journal of Applied Corporate Finance
