Abstract

This case provides information about a very successful corporate raider against a theoretical background which suggests that growth by takeover has, at best, a marginal positive effect on acquirer performance and, at worst, definite negative effects, all the benefits of the takeover being passed to the target shareholders. The case is designed for postgraduate students in either a business policy/strategy course or for use in a specialist elective on takeovers and mergers.
