As usual, EADA Business School is participating in the CFA Research Challenge. This competition involves the best Spanish Business Schools analysing and valuing a Spanish public company chosen by CFA Institute. Every Business School presents a team of 5-6 members that must submit and investment written report before the 2nd of March. This report must calculate the intrinsic share value and, in comparison with its market price, express a recommendation whether this share must be bought, held or sold. After a first review by the Tribunal member, CFA Institute selects the six finalist teams that will defend its report through an oral presentation in front the aforementioned Tribunal on Thursday 23rd of March.

These kind of legal forms are tied to a very specific and strict legal regulation quite different from the other corporations. This fact has made more difficult the company valuation process.
