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.

The objectives of the Seventh Edition are twofold: to help the student understand the substantive law of sales and develop the skills of statutory analysis in the context of a comprehensive statute that contains critical definitions and numerous cross references. The materials consist of cases, text, and problems. The cases are selected because of their effectiveness as teaching materials, presenting difficult legal questions and explaining the business background of the disputes. The notes elaborate on the background and push the student to question the rationale of the court. The problems further explore the soundness of the court's decision and present new issues of statutory analysis for the student to consider. They require the student to dig deeply into the language of the statute and the Official Comments, working back and forth among the various sections that are relevant to solving the problem. For teachers who so prefer, the course can be taught almost entirely through use of the problems.
