This revised corporate finance casebook updates old topics, opens up new topics, and revisits, revises and rationalizes basic materials. The introduction to basic financial economics in the first part of the book has been integrated and simplified. Where the exposition in previous editions relied heavily on excerpts from finance textbooks, this edition deletes much of that material and introduces its own textual treatment. The result is more focus on basics and a more orderly progression of points. In addition, the algebraic designations of valuation are now uniform throughout the book. Reports on practice in the chapters on long-term debt securities and convertible bonds have been updated substantially. Finally, the deal documents in the Appendix have been updated and rationalized and more effectively reflect current practice. Users will find that all of these changes can be interpolated without significant disruption of existing pedagogy. The new edition begins with Huff Fund v. CKx, one of the recent appraisal cases in which Vice-Chancellor Glasscock uses the merger price as the value measure. With CKx, the book finally has a current touchstone case on valuation to replace Atlas Pipeline, which led off in editions 1 through 4. Other new cases include Financial Guaranty Insurance v. Putnam Advisory, a synthetic securitization case accompanied by a note on the Goldman Sachs ABACUS scandal; Kallick v. Sandridge Energy, one of the âeoeproxy putâe cases; MeehanCombs v. Ceasarâe(tm)s Entertainment (currently on appeal), in which the Southern District reads teeth into the Trust Indenture Act; Third Point v. Ruprecht, the Sothebyâe(tm)s poison pill case; MFW Shareholders Litigation, which holds out business judgment review in a cash-out merger; Del Monte Foods Shareholder Litigation, one of the recent investment banker cases under Revlon: and Corwin v. KKR, under which a fully-informed shareholder vote trumps a Revlon claim.

It also continues to emphasize six basic editorial principles: Be lean but not mean, cases edited ruthlessly to produce a readable and concise result. Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planner's perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems. It's a casebook not a treatise. No long, stultifying textual passages. Provide the cases and let the individual teacher use them as he or she sees fit. Try to find cases that are fun to teach. Great facts or a clever analysis are always given first priority in case selection. Provide a teachers' manual that goes into great depth, with analysis of every case and, whenever applicable, offering the disparate views of each author. An exhaustive teachers' manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.
