Abstract

This case is part of the ADP-GSI case series on mergers and acquisitions. This case presents the alternatives available to GSI (Generale de Service Informatique) in the summer of 1995. Former senior manager Gluntz has returned in February after a 10-year hiatus and created a plan to turnaround the company. By summer, it's obvious that the option of selling GSI to an appropriate acquirer must be evaluated, given the mounting pressure of financial investors. The case places the reader in Gluntz's shoes to determine whether to resuscitate the company from crisis or sell to one of three alternative buyers, one being ADP (Automatic Data Processing).
