Mergers, Acquisitions, and Industry Consolidation: A Case Study [Kellogg]

Between 2003 and 2010, the printing industry, hobbled by excess capacity, high leverage, price erosion and electronic substitution, was transformed through successful combination transactions that created two industry leaders poised for further growth. The CEO who led the design, negotiation and execution of those transactions, and the successful integration of many large corporations, brings to life the proxy statements that explained those transactions to, and created billions of dollars in value for, shareholders. Students will learn the real world aspects that make business combinations successful as they follow transactions from idea creation and initial proposal, through due diligence inquiries, negotiation, legal and financing implications, closing, and business integration. The case study highlights and analyzes some of the necessary elements of successful mergers and acquisitions: integrity, accountability, work ethic, deal making, team building, leadership and a ferocious will to win. Some of the sessions will include appearances by principals and professional advisors who were involved in the subject transactions. Evaluation: Take home final examination. Teaching Method: Some lecture and discussion. Class attendance is integral to success on the final examination. Pre-requisites: None. Course will be taught on University calendar and will meet at Kellogg.
