Abstract

This is the third of a four-case series (397-019-1 to 397-022-1). Peter Dawe and Chris Batterham, managing director and finance director of Unipalm PIPEX plc, were wrestling with the possibility of the company being acquired by UUNET, the largest US commercial Internet provider. Although Peter thought that the acquisition would make a lot of sense for the company, he was beginning to wonder about his future role in the company; Chris was more concerned about how to structure the deal, given that UUNET were making a wholly share based offer for the company. Both were concerned about the financial implications of exchanging Unipalm PIPEX shares for UUNET shares.
