Abstract

Labatt's team attempted major acquisitions in the UK, then on the Continent. When those efforts failed, the team settled on two small Italian brewers, Prinz Brau and Birra Moretti. The deals were ready to close when serious problems were discovered at Prinz. Labatt's board had approved the two acquisitions as a package; Prinz could not be omitted. And the window of opportunity for any acquisition seemed to be closing rapidly as a major shareholder pressed Labatt for cash.
