Corporate Finance and Canadian Law

Canadian corporations utilize increasingly sophisticated financing structures and instruments - things they never told you about in law school. This unique primer helps explain some of the foundational finance principles that underlie the recent explosion in corporate financial technology - all within the legal context so crucial for the busy practitioner. Topics covered include:
  • The "Pooling" v. "Purchase" accounting controversy
  • Financial derivatives such as swaps, options, futures and forwards and the recent policy initiatives by the OSC with respect to over-the-counter derivatives and debt-like derivatives
  • Economic theory such as Efficient Market Theory, the Modigliani-Miller Theorem and the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)
  • Simple bond and share valuation, NPV (Net Present Value) and IRR (Internal Rate of Return)
  • The role of Canadian financial institutions, including a concise summary of key features of Bill C-38, as well as a discussion of the forces underlying global consolidation in the financial industry and the recent failed Canadian bank mergers
  • The role of securities exchanges including Canadian stock exchange restructuring and the April 2000 demutualization of the TSE.
Let this introduction to corporate finance principles help you get a competitive edge in the practice of corporate finance law.
