The increasing complexity of the modern corporate financial manager's responsibilities, combined with ever-changing economic climates, have made the formulation and implementation of financial decisions more and more difficult, and their timing even more critical. This looseleaf volume provides information for handling areas of corporate finance, including investment opportunities, sources of funds, managing working capital, financial control systems, dividends, financing operations, mergers and acquisitions and international financial management. It also examines major economic factors such as inflation, interest rates and taxation and shows how they effect financial decisions. The book contains graphs, charts and examples to illustrate key points and reflects changes and developments through an updating service. It is intended for use by finance directors and managers, corporate treasurers, company secretaries and accountants.
