Hi,

I will get 3 financial statements and have to perform a DCF on a paper with the help of a very small & not so modern pocket calculator in 1 hour.

Any tips on how to do it the quickest?

Thank you and have a nice day!

Hi,

It's a very common task for Private Equity firms and investment banks. "Training the street" had an amazing course on how to do the valuation on paper.

Best!
