Financial Analysis: EVA and the Altman-Z Score
Do you want to brush up your financial analysis skills? This session focuses on two sophisticated analysis tools – EVA and the Altman-Z Score.

Understand why these metrics might belong in your analytical toolbox.
Strategic Cash Management: Capital Structure and Long Term Cash Needs
Businesses depend on having adequate capital and cash flow. While someone else may handle day-to-day cash management procedures, the CFO must take the lead in strategic cash management decisions. Those who can't manage cash strategically are often replaced when a company goes into a growth mode. Attend this session to gain insights that will allow you to function at the highest level.

Which is the 'best' for a given business? Program content includes crucial topics such as: the absolute single best metric, the Cost of Capital, the capital asset pricing model and Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC), Valuation methodologies (income, asset and market approaches), Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) and many more. CPAs and Corporate Financial Managers can’t afford to miss this session.
Crowd Funding: What Every CFO Should Know
The internet provides several new ways to raise money. These methods, called crowd funding, allow organizations to raise money through donations, pre-sales, debt and equity, often from large numbers of people. Crowd funding is getting easier due to emerging regulations the JOBS act provides. While not appropriate for all organizations, crowd funding has no shortage of success stories. However, risks, advantages, disadvantages and costs exist. This session provides a crowd funding overview for finance professionals who want to learn about this new financing method, including key considerations for each crowd funding type.
