Mergers, takeovers and restructuring have become commonplace phenomena in the new economy and force companies to grow larger. A recent example is the takeover of Arcelor by Mittal Steel (two of the main players in the steel market). The question is whether these takeovers actually create value for the firm.
In this skills training you will take part in understanding shareholder value-based thinking in the context of M&As by performing case work that focuses on valuing and assessing takeovers, synergies, option-like deals, and buyouts.
Other teaching methods: 3 written case studies.
Other examination method: assignments/cases.
