Highlights

uValue: The Corporate Valuation App  //

uValue is a corporate valuation app for the iPad (now also available in its fully functional form for the iPhone and iPod Touch). The app helps you value businesses using conceptually rigorous, yet practical, widely-used tools. You can value firms using  the ‘weighted average cost of capital’ (WACC, or 'cost of capital') approach, the ‘adjusted present value’ (APV) approach, the ‘dividend growth model’ (DGM), or real option valuation (ROV) techniques. The app also includes a set of handy calculators to value bonds, annuities and perpetuities, as well as to calculate the cost of capital, to forecast exchange rates, to lever/unlever betas, and so forth.
