How to Get 6 Brand-New, Free Financial Modeling Tutorials – Plus Bonus Material
Let’s skip the preamble and get straight to the point: we’ve just created a brand-new set of 6 free financial modeling tutorials for you.
These tutorials are all based on a $16 billion M&A deal (United Technologies’ acquisition of Goodrich Corporation) in the aerospace and defense industry, and they are the best, and most helpful, free tutorials that we’ve ever released.
If you’ve signed up for any of the free tutorials here before, this set is approximately 100x better (especially with the additional bonus tutorials).
If you have no interest in learning financial modeling (why are you reading this site, exactly?) you can ignore this announcement.
But if you’re… slightly interested in getting a crash course on key financial modeling topics, you should read on and sign up for your 6 Free Financial Modeling Tutorials over at the Breaking Into Wall Street website.
What’s In It for You
You’ll get 6 free tutorials that cover the following topics:
- Setting Up Assumptions in a Merger Model
- Projecting the Buyer and Seller
- Calculating Accretion / Dilution
- Purchase Price Allocation
- Combining and Adjusting the Balance Sheets
- Calculating Revenue and Expense Synergies – With Limited Information
For more on some of these topics, check out our tutorial on how to calculate Goodwill as well.
You’ll learn how to use SEC filings, equity research, press releases, and other sources to get all the information, and then how to use it successfully in models.
And the merger model is one of the key topics that’s almost guaranteed to come up in interviews, so your time is very well spent here. It comes up on the job all the time as well, whether you’re analyzing a transaction in banking or you’re at a PE firm or hedge fund and you’re looking at a portfolio company’s recent acquisition.
Plenty of other “companies” (I use that term loosely) in this market would charge you for this information.
Our philosophy is quite different: give away for free what other people would charge you for.
And if you keep watching your inbox closely, you’ll also receive additional bonus tutorials:
- How to Calculate Free Cash Flow in Real Life, and why items like “Working Capital” AKA “Changes in Operating Assets and Liabilities” cause so much confusion – and how to understand them properly.
- How to Link the 3 Statements in Real Life, using a “messy” example of a real company, as opposed to some academic construct that exists only in textbooks.
Why Am I Doing This?
Part of the reason this site became popular in the first place is that I take a “no-BS” approach and tell it like it is (yes, if I were a doctor I would have a horrible bedside manner).
The financial modeling courses we’ve created have done very well and continue to do well.
Over 13,866 people have signed up so far, and more are joining every day.
If I really wanted to, I could slack off and not add much in the way of free material… and also not improve on what we already have.
And since this site and the courses are established, no one would notice for a long time.
But I am not satisfied with that approach.
There is always a better way to do things – always a better way to explain concepts, and always a better way to help you learn and retain material.
So we’re taking the opposite approach: this new set of free tutorials is just the beginning.
You’ll see some fairly massive updates and surprises over the next few months, and if you’ve already signed up for some of the courses you’ll get previews of all that very soon.
