Abstract

The case is investigating the offered price per share in the takeover of a large European health care provider by an investment fund. The case demonstrates several key issues in selecting valuation methods and measuring the financial value of a company in a context of fast external growth. It illustrates the difficulty in using valuation methods when the market value of a company is quite far from the book value. It analyses the meaning of a number of indicators, like P/E ratio and dividend yield. It is recommended that this case be used for Master or MBA students, in an advanced course in corporate finance.
