Below is some great content about different business valuation methods. If you are looking for some advanced modeling literature, I can highly recommend this modeling package which I have found extremely useful in helping me mastering both Excel and financial modeling - which works as a stable knowledge base in my investment banking carrier.

Term loan / leveraged loan

A term loan, called “leveraged loan” when non-investment grade, is a loan with a specified maturity that requires amortization according to a defined schedule. Like a revolver, a traditional term loan for LBO financing is structured as a first lien debt obligation and requires the borrower to maintain a certain credit profile through compliance with financial maintenance covenants contained in the credit agreement. Unlike the revolver a term loan must be fully funded on the date of closing and once principal is repaid, it cannot be re-borrowed. Term loans are classified by an identifying letter such as A, B or C etc. in accordance with their lender base, amortization schedule and term.
