Financial modelling is the most important analysis tool in a company’s decision-making arsenal. This course is specifically designed to provide dealmakers, analysts and other financing professionals with the tools they would require in order to analyze any mining financial model, and prepare powerful summarization outputs upon which decisions would be made.
This course is ideal for fast-tracking industry professionals in their career path – teaching them to analyze existing client models and also create their own models for various applications. The material is well suited to middle-office and front-office professionals, teaching them to assess the risks of funding mining opportunities.
This course blends theoretical principles with real industry insights. Its bottom-up nature is designed to provide a holistic journey, from the initial construction of a model, to the final financial assessment in order to be able to make an investment decision (whether debt or equity related). This would allow participants to deeply analyze potential funding opportunities, structure tailor-made financing packages, and produce comprehensive and concise outputs which summarize bulky raw data.
By the end of the course you will be able to effectively construct a financial model that describes the process flow of your mining business, from raw material extraction, all the way until net profit after tax. You will learn how to itemize all cost and revenue drivers, model tax, working capital, and debt funding.
The concepts taught are based on years of investment banking experience, and billions of dollars worth of project financing deals in multiple jurisdictions.
Students would need to download the ABC Mining Financial Model (provided for free) in order to participate in the course.
I look forward to engaging with you as the course progresses!
