The introductory chapters of this textbook discuss basic finance concepts, including accounting statements, security markets, interest rates, taxes, risk analysis, time value of money, and the basics of security valuation. Subsequent chapters explain how financial managers can help maximize their firms' values by improving decisions in such areas as working capital management, capital budgeting, and choice of capital structure. The fourteenth edition splits the valuation chapter into separate chapters on bonds and stocks.
