Tl;dr: Part of a collection of real examples of M&A investment banking slides. This blog covers Share Price Analysis. See the PowerPoint presentations investment bankers are paid millions for. No matter your job, or your aspirations, you can learn from these slides.
This is part of a collection of 67 free M&A presentations from the top 20 banks (based on ranking, and also the quality of presentation for you to learn from).

Is this blog for you?
Why the heck should you care? Investment banks (historically) attracted the best and the brightest.
- Slide structure/design: Learn how complicated concepts are structured and designed in PowerPoint
- Analysis approach: See exactly how complex financial methods are presented
- Strategy and communication: M&A deals are not (normally, other than many Duff and Phelps decks) cookie cutter. There’s a host of topics that need to be dealt with
- Morbid interest: I used to do this for a living, but it’s still interesting to see how PPT are made… but then maybe it’s just me and so FML 😉
Who this will help:
- You want to work in banking: There’s a lot of applicants. Knowing the job helps you answer questions
- You work in banking: Even if you’re an MD, you need to know how the best are structuring their thoughts/analysis
- You write presentations: You can’t buy learnings like this. You can learn from the slides
- You have a curious mind: Good for you
About Share Price Analysis
If you’re a public company then you can be certain that your clients care about their share price. Why? Well, their bonus is typically dependant on the share price going up (often that term is TSR or total shareholder return). You’ll see that decisions they take are based on “will the share price go up?”, or will some other share price-related item such as EPS (Earnings Per Share) go up? This relates to another blog about accretion/dilution.
There are lots of kinds of share price analysis that you can do and for different reasons.
- Your client: are we undervalued, what can we do to increase our share price? How are we trading in comparison to our peers? Would it make sense to do a share buy back if we are trading low? Can we use our high price to raise more money?
- An acquisition target: Are they trading low compared to history. What has affected their share price? What do we think we could buy them for?
Why these slides are made
If you have a client that is public, you’re pretty much always going to do some kind of share price analysis. Personally, I can’t say that these are slides that clients obsess about and the takeaway is sort of simple “are they high or low?” But these slides are always going to be in at least one presentation you will do.
As you can see, annotated share prices are really common.
Comments on making these slides
This is just about the simplest kind of analysis you’ll do. In fact, you probably won’t even be explained how to do it, you’ll just figure it out.
