Financial modelling + Consulting Written Interview?

Anonymous A asked on Apr 28, 2018 - 1 answer

Hi,

In a couple of days, I will have to do a written case (2hr prep, 1 hr presentation) for a consulting firm. This is with the firm's private equity performance improvement group (focuses on pre and post-integration strategies of portfolio companies), and will involve a mix of financial modelling and traditional case consulting. Does anyone have any experience in this type of exercise and resources I could use to practice? Thank you!

Hi, did anyone else have any experience on this type of case or know where to find good practice material? — Anonymous B on Sep 03, 2019

Hi,

Usually, in PEs these cases will be much more detailed in financial part. Depending on the company you'll need to:

  • Find the relevant information in P&L and Balance sheet
  • Do the simplified valuation using NPV: calculate cash flows and make assumptions about growth rate and discount rate
  • Do the valuation using comps - you'll have to explain which comps you will use and why

Good luck!
