Capital expenditures, depreciation, and amortization are fundamental forecast assumptions in the financial modeling and valuation processes. This course will cover how to apply these metrics to forecast the fixed assets in the balance sheet, the depreciation and amortization expense in the income statement, and the purchase of capital expenditures in the cash flow statement. You will apply these theoretical concepts to industry and organizational performance to make accurate decisions as they relate to capital expenditure purchases and financial reporting.
