Abstract

This case considers the hostile takeover launched by Granada Group against Forte Plc. The analysis is centred on Granada Group and covers its background and structure, recent historical development and philosophy and the takeover bid. The rapid growth of Granada Group in recent years by means of mergers and acquisitions and the dynamism of its management team are analysed and the implications for the takeover are highlighted. This case can be used to illustrate a management situation where two different corporate philosophies are confronted and the performance of the management teams used as the main trading value to convince shareholders. Aspects of financial performance and corporate strategy are also analysed and presented.
