Number SA 340 734 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2013 Fall 2013 Show Details Private Equity in Developing Countries This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding of how private equity investments are originated structured valued and eventually exited focusing primarily on developing countries Private Equity PE refers to a range of financing techniques that provide long term capital to companies usually before they are able to issue publicly traded securities including venture capital for early stage companies equity for well established small and mid size firms and mezzanine debt that has some equity characteristics PE investors expect to generate high financial returns because these financings are characterized by illiquidity and high levels of risk compared to publicly issued securities Because of these risk factors and the relatively long term nature of the investments PE investors are exceptionally rigorous and demanding in the screening due diligence valuation and negotiations that precede a decision about each investment and then they remain actively involved with their portfolio companies until an exit is completed Three premises have heavily influenced the design of this course First the vast majority of companies in developing countries have limited or no access to medium and long term capital creating an opportunity for PE to play an enormously important role both for the profitability and competitiveness of individual firms as well as for overall private sector development and macroeconomic growth Second private equity especially in developing countries is about much more than supplying scarce capital to worthy firms successful outcomes hinge upon the investor s capability to be a hands on contributor to long term value creation in its portfolio companies And third PE in developing countries should be viewed as a significantly different asset class than in developed countries because of a daunting range of additional risks and challenges For example problems of information asymmetry between investors and their portfolio companies are greater legal systems are less reliable corporate governance standards are weaker regulations and public policies often are counter productive and exit opportunities are limited due to small or non existent IPO markets and underdeveloped M A markets But these same risks also create exceptional PE opportunities especially for savvy investors who are able to capitalize on sector and company inefficiencies This course highlights how investors can successfully overcome the risks and capitalize on the opportunities that characterize PE in developing country environments The course begins with a PE industry overview an introduction to the entire PE investment cycle and a hands on review of the common valuation methodologies used by PE investors Once these basic building blocks are covered the course turns to case studies that are based on actual transactions highlighting the challenges and tasks at each stage of the PE investment cycle such as structuring and fund raising for a PE fund originating investment opportunities conducting due diligence and valuation preparing term sheets and other documentation monitoring and creating value in portfolio companies and exiting investments Although most cases focus on the activities of PE fund managers investors some cases focus on other stakeholders such as entrepreneurs weighing the pros and cons of raising capital from PE investors institutional investors e g pension funds university endowments considering whether to invest in emerging markets PE and development finance institutions with a mandate to strengthen the PE industry in developing countries You will learn in this course that although financial analytical skills are a pivotal ingredient for success in the preparation and execution of transactions the PE investment process requires a far broader more multidisciplinary arsenal of skills and sensitivities especially amidst the high level of uncertainty that is characteristic of most developing country PE investment climates Some sessions will require financial modeling and valuation exercises but the overall approach to the subject is more holistic examining all aspects of the investment cycle and the perspectives of a range of PE stakeholders operating in developing country environments Leveraged buyouts which have become prevalent in some Western countries are far less common in developing countries for reasons that will be explored during the course Course Number SA 380 778 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2013 Spring 2014 Show Details

public and private sectors in this process As a part of this analysis the course will look the positive and negative aspects of such partnerships the risks involved and the perspectives of both public and private organizations To ensure that students are exposed to the practical application of the theory lectures throughout the course will include practical examples and grading will include a major practical assignment as well as three case studies A primer in finance with a focus on modeling for PPPs will also be included as this is critical to understanding the decision making frameworks that

requirements for each specialization above the basic and core required courses for the International Economics concentration Specialization in Quantitative Methods and Economic Theory focuses both the technical quantitative skills of economics and the analyticals theoretical aspects of the disciplines Specialization in International Finance focuses on financial markets and financial decision making in the area of international economics Specialization in Infrastructure Finance and Policy focuses on financial modeling economics and policy issues associated with infrastructure investments and other public private partnerships Specialization in Development Economics focuses on a range of issues of transitioning countries with an emphasis on economic growth and development Specialization in Economic Policy focuses on market and regulatory institutional aspects of policy problems of either the micro or macro variety and practical applications of economic thought to policy problems in any of the trade monetary finance or growth development arenas Completion of the requirements in a specialization will result in a formal indication of the specialization on the student s transcript Completion of the requirements for any of the specializations satisfies the International Economics concentration requirement for the SAIS M A degree These specializations do not change the requirement of a concentration in an examination field outside of International Economics They are simply an option for students wishing to indicate a focus of study within the field of international economics It should be recognized that these specializations are significantly more demanding in terms of economic knowledge and workload than the general International Economics requirement Students with no prior background in economics and students who do not fulfill the basic requirements Microeconomics and Macroeconomics before starting their first full semester are discouraged from considering a specialization Double Counting Courses for Specializations Courses that appear in multiple specialization lists may be counted toward only ONE specialization Note on Cross Listed Courses Be aware that the International Economics Program reviews the elective courses listed in each specialization yearly and that non International Economics Program courses may be added or deleted Any

graduate level introductory course in risk analysis and modelin This course is a graduate level introductory course in risk analysis and modeling The course will focus on the nature of risk particularly as it affects decision making in areas such as public policy legislation and regulation economics and finance In that context the use of mathematical models will be explored from simple deterministic models to more complex probabilistic models The conditions under which risk models are most useful will be explored as well as the situations such as the occurrence of black swan events where risk models are prone to failure Course Number SA 340 713 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2013 Fall 2013 Show Details Quantitative Global Economics Quantitative global economics examines

2013 Show Details Private Equity in Developing Countries This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding This seminar is designed to provide participants with a practical understanding of how private equity investments are originated structured valued and eventually exited focusing primarily on developing countries Private Equity PE refers to a range of financing techniques that provide long term capital to companies usually before they are able to issue publicly traded securities including venture capital for early stage companies equity for well established small and mid size firms and mezzanine debt that has some equity characteristics PE investors expect to generate high financial returns because these financings are characterized by illiquidity and high levels of risk compared to publicly issued securities Because of these risk factors and the relatively long term nature of the investments PE investors are exceptionally rigorous and demanding in the screening due diligence valuation and negotiations that precede a decision about each investment and then they remain actively involved with their portfolio companies until an exit is completed Three premises have heavily influenced the design of this course First the vast majority of companies in developing countries have limited or no access to medium and long term capital creating an opportunity for PE to play an enormously important role both for the profitability and competitiveness of individual firms as well as for overall private sector development and macroeconomic growth Second private equity especially in developing countries is about much more than supplying scarce capital to worthy firms successful outcomes hinge upon the investor s capability to be a hands on contributor to long term value creation in its portfolio companies And third PE in developing countries should be viewed as a significantly different asset class than in developed countries because of a daunting range of additional risks and challenges For example problems of information asymmetry between investors and their portfolio companies are greater legal systems are less reliable corporate governance standards are weaker regulations and public policies often are counter productive and exit opportunities are limited due to small or non existent IPO markets and underdeveloped M A markets But these same risks also create exceptional PE opportunities especially for savvy investors who are able to capitalize on sector and company inefficiencies This course highlights how investors can successfully overcome the risks and capitalize on the opportunities that characterize PE in developing country environments The course begins with a PE industry overview an introduction to the entire PE investment cycle and a hands on review of the common valuation methodologies used by PE investors Once these basic building blocks are covered the course turns to case studies that are based on actual transactions highlighting the challenges and tasks at each stage of the PE investment cycle such as structuring and fund raising for a PE fund originating investment opportunities conducting due diligence and valuation preparing term sheets and other documentation monitoring and creating value in portfolio companies and exiting investments Although most cases focus on the activities of PE fund managers investors some cases focus on other stakeholders such as entrepreneurs weighing the pros and cons of raising capital from PE investors institutional investors e g pension funds university endowments considering whether to invest in emerging markets PE and development finance institutions with a mandate to strengthen the PE industry in developing countries You will learn in this course that although financial analytical skills are a pivotal ingredient for success in the preparation and execution of transactions the PE investment process requires a far broader more multidisciplinary arsenal of skills and sensitivities especially amidst the high level of uncertainty that is characteristic of most developing country PE investment climates Some sessions will require financial modeling and valuation exercises but the overall approach to the subject is more holistic examining all aspects of the investment cycle and the perspectives of a range of PE stakeholders operating in developing country environments Leveraged buyouts which have become prevalent in some Western countries are far less common in developing countries for reasons that will be explored during the course Course Number SA 380 778 Campus Washington D C Term Fall 2013 Spring 2014 Show Details Organization and Regulation of Infrastructure The

Infrastructure Through Public Private Partnerships This course analyzes the ways in which the public and private sectors work toget This course analyzes the ways in which the public and private sectors work together to develop infrastructure in developed and developing economies After an introductory lecture it will begin by examining infrastructure what it is and why it is so important to long term economic growth and development It will then review the way infrastructure projects are developed through public private partnerships PPPs and the role of the public and private sectors in this process As a part of this analysis the course will look the positive and negative aspects of such partnerships the risks involved and the perspectives of both public and private organizations To ensure that students are exposed to the practical application of the theory lectures throughout the course will include practical examples and grading will include a major practical assignment as well as three case studies A primer in finance with a focus on modeling for PPPs will also be included as this is critical to understanding the decision making frameworks that are used by both the public and private sectors Course Number SA 380 752 Campus Washington D C Term Spring 2014 Program Activities Learning Beyond the Classroom The International Economics Program offers students the opportunity
