The objective of the case is to introduce students to the world of leverage buyout. Baring Capital is a private equity specializes in buyout, it is now targeting a subsidiary of Aacova Radiateurs. The problem at hand is to determine an appropriate price for the company in an international setting. The report should cover, but not limited to, the following aspects of the valuation process: 1) Is Acova a good candidate for leverage buyout?
2) Use the FCFE method to evaluate Acova and determine what it is worth. Feel free to supplement your analysis with other valuation method. 3) Like many buyout funds, BCI requires a very high hurdle rate, 30% to 35%, from its expected investment project. Is such requirement reasonable in Acova’s case?
For lead groups, the valuation method for this case is relatively straightforward, so again I look forward to you to present the case. Please prepare a 10-15 minutes presentation to discuss the case. PowerPoint slide is recommended, and feel free to provide Tables/Slides/Graphs to aid your discussion.
