Abstract

Duncton Plc is a medium-sized car leasing business in the UK that has experienced double-digit growth over the past 4 years, and has now become a significant provider of sub-prime vehicle financing in the UK. The case examines a period of time when the company was facing the need to refinance as their lender had just provided notice that it would no longer be able to provide financing for Duncton''s fleet of vehicles. The case study is ideal for final year undergraduate management students and MBA students. The case addresses a real life situation whereby a small to medium-sized enterprise is dealing with its owners'' determination as to what the appropriate next step might be in growing the company, while at the same time addressing the appropriate exit strategy for the owners over that same period. A common dilemma for owners and managers of small and medium-sized enterprises, the students will find that they need to address the environments, both externally and internally, that the company and its owners face. The case involves discussion of the sub-prime market for lending, a contemporary topic for business students.
