The Battle for Cortefiel

This acquisition is made by a Capital Risk Fund that has developed a business plan that will attempt to create value through Cortefiel’s operations and this financial operation funding. At a certain moment, the operation is blocked due to other Capital Risk Funds which are also interested in the group. Students have to analyze the business plan and decide whether or not to increase the price offered. The case presents information about the Group and includes interviews with sector experts that participated in the operation. The last part enables students to solve numerically the case, carrying out all the sections of the business plan and analyzing if the price that they are paying for the stocks should be increased or not.
