Overview

The best-selling Fundamentals of Corporate Finance (FCF) has three basic themes that are the central focus of the book:

1) An emphasis on intuition—the authors separate and explain the principles at work on a common sense, intuitive level before launching into any specifics.

2) A unified valuation approach—net present value (NPV) is treated as the basic concept underlying corporate finance.

3) A managerial focus—the authors emphasize the role of the financial manager as decision maker, and they stress the need for managerial input and judgment.

The Tenth Edition continues the tradition of excellence that has earned Fundamentals of Corporate Finance its status as market leader. Every chapter has been updated to provide the most current examples that reflect corporate finance in today’s world. The supplements package has been updated and improved, and with the enhanced Connect Finance and Excel Master, student and instructor support has never been stronger.

Editorial Reviews

Virginia Dwyer
As well as responding to issues raised by the Columbus quincentenary, Utter contributes to the field of Indian literature in outlining the terms of Indian existence within the legal and social systems of this country. A wide range of Indian matters is covered, backed with documentation and commentary from principal players, historical and current. The topics are arranged in sections such as "Tribes," "Culture and Religion," "Land," "Resources and Economics," and "Bureau of Indian Affairs"; Indians in Alaska and Hawaii have separate sections. Most topics are presented in a question-and-answer format. Answers range from long paragraphs to two pages of clarifying information and context for such hot issues as hunting and fishing rights, alcohol use, and Indian mascots. Even legal issues are readily understandable. An upfront list of all questions, nine appendixes, a lengthy bibliography, and an index make the information topical, accessible, and verifiable; a must for general libraries.
