Financial Management is so crucial for any organization––public or private sector––as profit maximization and increasing the shareholder value depend, to a large measure, on efficient and effective financial management of the company or firm. With this end in view, Professor Bhabatosh Banerjee, drawing from his expertise and his rich and long years of experience, gives a masterly analysis of the fundamental principles of financial management along with their applications.

While retaining the distinguishing features of the previous edition, the book is now a much more comprehensive one on Financial Management. Significant changes have been incorporated into the chapters relating to cost of capital, analysis of leverages, capital structure theories and planning, capital budgeting decision, working capital management, changes in financial position, accounting ratios and financial statement analysis, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance for further value addition of the book.

The book is logically organized into five parts—Part I: Basic Concepts, Part II: Financial and Dividend Decisions, Part III: Investing in Long-term and Short-term Assets, Part IV: Performance Analysis and Measurement, Part V: Contemporary Topics—to enable the students to understand the concepts, with suitable cases, chronologically and more effortlessly.

This book is primarily intended as a text for the students of commerce and management courses. It will also be highly useful for those appearing in CA and ICWAI examinations. In addition, the text will benefit practising finance and accounting professionals, corporate managers, and participants in management development programs.

With an insider's view of the mind of the master, Mary Buffett and David Clark have written a simple guide for reading financial statements from Warren Buffett's succccessful perspective.

Buffett and Clark clearly outline Warren Buffett's strategies in a way that will appeal to newcomers and seasoned Buffettologists alike. Inspired by the seminal work of Buffett's mentor, Benjamin Graham (The Interpretation of Financial Statements, 1937), this book presents Buffett's interpretation of financial statements with anecdotes and quotes from the master investor himself.

Potential investors will discover:

• Buffett's time-tested dos and don'ts for interpreting an income statement and balance sheet
• Why high research and development costs can kill a great business
• How much debt Buffett thinks a company can carry before it becomes too dangerous to touch
• The financial ratios and calculations that Buffett uses to identify the company with a durable competitive advantage -- which he believes makes for the winning long-term investment
• How Buffett uses financial statements to value a company
• What kinds of companies Warren stays away from no matter how cheap their selling price

Once readers complete and master Buffett's simple financial calculations and methods for interpreting a company's financial statement, they'll be well on their way to identifying which companies are going to be tomorrow's winners -- and which will be the losers they should avoid at all costs.

Destined to become a classic in the world of investment books, Warren Buffett and the Interpretation of Financial Statements is the perfect companion volume to The New Buffettology and The Tao of Warren Buffett.
