Classroom rules Cellphones OFF If your phone rings, I get to answer it. (Also true for me). No texting. If I see you texting you will be asked to solve a problem on the board. I prefer no laptops. However, if you take notes on the laptop, please sit near the back

of the classroom so you do not distract students behind you. Chapter 1- Introduction Why are you here? Learning Objectives 1. Identify the three main subject areas in 2. 3.

4. 5. finance Know the different forms of business organization and discuss the agency problem Define the goal of corporate financial management Compare/contrast finance and accounting Understand how cash affects value

Why is finance important? A horrible product (usually) dooms a business. A great product is not enough - horrible financial management coupled with a great product (usually) also dooms a business. 3 subfields of finance

Financial markets and institutions (or Banking) = Middleman Investments = Surplus (they invest money in stock, bonds, and savings accounts) Corporate Financial Management (or Corporate Finance) = Deficit (they take money from investors and buy stuff) *Identifying, managing, and valuing risky

cash flows is the goal of finance* Basic forms of Business Organization Sole proprietorship Partnership Corporation Advantages/Disadvantages? Ownership structures Type Ownership

Ability to Raise Capital Liability 100% owned by a Sole Proprietorship single individual Owner usually manages company

Difficult Unlimited personal liability Partnership Two or more individuals

Less difficult than Sole Proprietorship Similar to Sole Proprietorship Corporation Typical separation of owners and

managers The least difficult Limited to of all forms owners initial investment Also taxation and liquidity differences Agency Problem Getting the agent (the person running the

business) to act in the interest of the principal (the shareholders who own the business). Financial managers goal Maximize value of the firm. Same as maximizing stock price. NOT the same as maximizing profits. Why not?

She accomplishes this goal by two basic decisions: How to get money (raise capital), and what to do with it (real investment). Accounting and Finance Accounting USUALLY deals in Book Value (i.e. cost) Finance USUALLY deals with Market Value (what someone would pay you for it today). Accounting is historical data (annual reports, 10-K

filings, etc). Finance attempts to project future data BUT YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND ACCOUNTING TO DO THIS Cash and Value Value = all future expected cash flows discounted by their riskiness (we will slightly

refine this definition later). CASH is the only thing that matters here! This may seem counterintuitive right now, but should be more clear when we look at Stock Valuation in Chapter 9. Class Summary Why should you care? After the introductory accounting chapters, this entire class is associated with VALUE.

Specifically, how to value a bond, a stock, or a new project for a company. Next class Quiz 1 Math Test
