HERE’S JUST SOME OF WHAT YOU’LL GET IN THIS COURSE

LBO: The Big Picture (14 video lessons, 1 case)

In this module, there are 14 video lessons provided to introduce LBO to you at a very high level. You will be learning the fundamental theories in LBO before we dive into practices including leverage, debt paydown & return, key drivers of return and internal rate of return. This module wraps up with a  "Paper LBO" exercise and a leveraged buyout of Nike case.

Sources and Uses: The Theory (14 video lessons)

In this module, we use 14 video lessons to provide you with an overview of sources and uses of cash in an acquisition, as well as help you build a robust understanding of fundamentals you need to know. You will be focusing on the theories, learning about key terms and definitions, but don't worry, the applications are in the next module...

P&L Projections & LBO Adjustments (3 video lessons)

In this module, there are 3 video lessons to walk you through some of the key changes in P&L and adjustments made for LBO. You will be given the opportunity to practise your modeling and linking skills for the income statement and cash flow statement.

Valuation and Transaction Assumptions (5 video lessons)

The 5 video lessons in module 2 provide you with a basic understanding of valuation and transaction assumptions we make when building LBOs. You will be learning adjusted EBITDA, acquisition multiple, building enterprise value to equity value, implied share price and other key assumptions.

Sources and Uses: Application to Nike Case (4 video lessons)

In this module, we will apply the fundamentals to a real-life application. This is the fun part...you will work on financing assumptions, fill in the uses and sources for the Nike case. 

Debt Schedule (16 video lessons)

In this module, there are 16 video lessons that teach arguably the most important part of an LBO. This module provides a walkthrough on how to build a debt schedule in excel and also includes a variety of topics such as calculation of cash flow available for debt service, revolver schedule, subordinated debt schedule, credit metrics and so on. 

Taxes (7 video lessons)

In module 9, there are 7 video lessons cover taxes and their impact on LBO. You will be learning about 2017 Tax Reform, discussing limitations around interest deductibility, calculating disallowed interest carryforward & accelerated Capex expensing, building Net Operating Losses, and completing the tax schedule.    

Bonus Modules

Three bonus modules, 24 video lessons, 3 additional topics related to an LBO...They cover purchase price accounting, dividend recap and add-on acquisition build. Each bonus module will dive into its topic and discuss how each topic applies to an LBO specifically with excel model exercises.

Apart from the DCF, most IBs want you to know the LBO model. LBO valuation was in all of our proposals. This course helps you with understanding the landscape and the financial modeling side of things. Very good.

The course is very straight forward and easy to follow! It will teach you how to construct your first LBO model and a process to be used when practicing different models. The instructor walks very thoroughly through each of the sections speaking to the implementation and background of an LBO model.

There are questions at the end of each section that could be improved upon, but it's a modeling course not exam prep so it is understanable.

Overall, I would recommend this course to someone interested in learning LBOs.

This was a very hands on approach to an LBO. Definitely worth it if you are planning to move to a PE role. I very much like the professional experience of the teacher and the way the course is paced is perfect for somebody who has no experience in LBOs to understand and learn all the necessary information and tips to impress your manager.

I Chose the modelling course because everybody knows that you don’t learn excel at school, you need to practice by yourself. The course takes you step by step from the most bac financial statement construction to detailed DCF financial modelling. Even if you don’t know anything about excel everything is very clear. I was scared that I would lack some excel proficiency when I first started my M&A internship last September but thanks to this class I was even helping my intern peers when they were struggling and impressed the analysts and associates in charge of me. Moreover, being proficient in excel modelling helped me focus on other tasks and occasionally finish sooner in the evening

The LBO modeling review was very effective and helpful - there are an abundance of videos to watch and take you through each step of designing an LBO. Think the one of the most beneficial pieces are the handful of case studies provided to practice after the course

Very in-depth course that does a great job covering everything you'd need to know to feel comfortable with LBO's. Instructor was great and gave a lot of tips that I use on a daily basis.

An accessible walk-through LBO modeling with industry instructors.

Received this as part of a bundle (fantastic value, I might add), and this was the perfect walk through for someone that knows theoretically what an LBO is, but wants a nuts and bolts perspective. Very accessible and quickly brings you up to speed. A very high yield course.

If you have little or no experience in constructing LBO models, this is one of the most complete finance career related program that you can opt for. The instructor left no stones unturned in teaching the fundamentals of the LBO as well as many of the assumptions and details that goes into building an LBO model. This program with its theoretical knowledge along with its real life application will potentially level you up before you apply for you dream job. Thank you WSO! Always looking forward to learn more!

As a new joiner to the PE space from strategy and audit, this course got me up to speed on all the considerations that go into modeling for LBOs. It was especially helpful due to the increased PE activity in the current market (low-interest rate, lots of distressed deals due to covid, etc). My boss was extremely happy that I hit the ground running. Thank you WSO team for making such useful courses! I've used their other courses before this and like always, I've never been disappointed.

As leveraged finance practitioner in BB bank can only fully recommend WSO LBO modelling course to all who needs practical experience of using leveraged finance and understanding model in detail - whether you'e at sells-de or buy-side. Course also comes at great value of money, specifically if you take is as a package with other courses. No brainer.

Extremely thorough treatment of LBO modeling (contains 120 lessons, none of the lessons are fluff). I like that they added some useful tips to keep in mind when creating an LBO model in Excel. Unfortunately I am not a finance professional so I can only review this on the basis of a casual learner who was curious about finance. I am not sure how applicable it would be to real world careers but I can definitely say this is a deep introduction for further studying, at the very least.

I am not sure how it compares to other LBO courses in terms of value for money (if there are even other LBO online courses out there), but I do want to emphasize that it is an extremely dense course compared to most other online/MOOC courses so the price (probably) scales accordingly compared to standard online course prices from other services.
