This supplementary software is to accompany the case. The case centers on the 2011 buyout of China Fire, a NASDAQ-listed Chinese fire protection firm. The MBO, backed by private equity firm Bain Capital, comes amid a wave of 'take China privates' aimed at exploiting valuations depressed by fraud scandals at some US-listed Chinese firms. In response to the USD9 cash bid, China Fire's board has formed a Special Committee to negotiate terms. As the committee's financial advisor, Barclays Capital must conduct financial due diligence, including the valuing of China Fire with various methods.
