Transaction Comps

Wall Street Prep
Updated Feb 28, 2019

Course Overview

Transaction comps analysis arrives at a company's value not by building a discounted cash flow or looking at the trading values of peers, but by looking at the purchase prices of recently acquired comparable companies. In this step-by-step course, you’ll learn how to select comparable acquisitions and find important disclosures in filings. Next, you will spread real transactions on your own. We’ll finish with a discussion about how to interpret the comp outputs and how the model results are presented in practice.
