Your task is to complete a valuation analysis of the target and buyer and to negotiate a price and exchange ratio with the counter party.

The case has the following goals:

...Contexto del Caso “El Problema” Después de una esforzada carrera y obtener mi título profesional salí a buscar trabajo con un afán de crecimiento personal y profesional. Después de un tiempo de búsqueda logre ubicarme en una empresa que quedaba a dos horas de viaje de mi casa, pero no me importó porque en lo único que pensaba era en aplicar mis conocimientos y empezar mi desarrollo profesional y por ende económico. Gracias a ese trabajo y los múltiples contactos y amistades que fui ganando, me contacté con una empresa que necesitaba un Ingeniero de mis características profesionales. Concerté una entrevista con quien sería mi futuro jefe. En la entrevista, le hice saber a mi futuro Jefe mi intención de seguir estudiando, con lo cual el jefe estuvo de acuerdo y complacido, pues era algo que a la empresa le servía. Ya instalado en mi nuevo trabajo comenzaron los problemas. Lo que en un principio se limitaba a una labor de ingeniero evaluador de proyectos, poco a poco se fue transformando en una carga mayor. Mi jefe al darse cuenta de la eficiencia con que me desempeñaba, comenzó a asignarme tareas de mayor complejidad, sin que esto reportara un mayor beneficio para mi ni profesional ni económico, como un ascenso o aumento de sueldo. Por el contrario, esto demandó que extendiera mi jornada laboral y descuidara mis estudios. Debido a mi poca experiencia no exteriorice mi descontento; sin embargo, un día decidí conversar con mi jefe para explicarle mis problemas......

Flinders Valves and Controls, Inc

...Potential Merger and Acquisition with RSE International Corporation Executive Summary We are presented with the opportunity to evaluate two enterprises, which are in discussion over a possible acquisition.  Flinders Valves and Controls Inc. (FVC) achieved a reputation for engineering excellence from its capability in providing specific applications for the defense and aerospace industries. Because of its reputation and excellence, FVC out-grew its small company, organized in 1980, and in 1996 it went public before a failed merger with Auden Company (which held 20% of FVC Common stock), due to a possible antitrust action.  Since then, no other firms have been able to work out an agreement for a merger with FVC. However, RSE International Corporation (RSE), a public Russell 1000 company, had recognized FVC’s disclosure of a U.S. government contract and felt for an opportunity to focus on diversification through an aggressive growth-by-acquisition program. With both firms having growing concerns about the current state of the economy as they move closer to the opportunity of striking a deal that can be both profitable and affordable for both sides, possible negotiations were within reach.  With this opportunity in focus, we analyze the value of the two firms and discuss three concerns; the effects of a merger, what opening offer RSE should make for the acquisition of FVC, and how RSE can raise the capital for such an offer. Benefits of RSE International Corporation and......

Rse Familiar

...Propiedad Familiar, control y efecto generación y RSC En las últimas décadas, la maximización del beneficio económico para los accionistas ha dejado paso a otros objetivos más amplios, pues a partir de la Teoría de los stakeholders se ha puesto de manifiesto la necesidad de que las compañías cubran las expectativas económicas, legales, éticas y discrecionales de todos los grupos de interés. El creciente interés por una gestión de la empresa que atiende las necesidades de sus stakeholders ha contribuido a la consolidación de la Responsabilidad Social Corporativa (RSC) como disciplina de investigación. A pesar de la no existencia de un concepto unánime de RSC, se podría definir ésta como el conjunto de acciones voluntarias de una empresa para mejorar las condiciones sociales y medioambientales en sus negocios y en su interacción con los distintos stakeholders. Aunque la mayor parte de los estudios empíricos previos sobre RSC se han centrado en la relación entre el desempeño social y el rendimiento económico, diversos trabajos han tratado de analizar los factores determinantes de la realización de actividades sociales. En los últimos años se han llevado a cabo estudios empíricos que consideran la estructura de propiedad como un factor explicativo de la RSC. Distintos estudios, han abordado asimismo la influencia de la identidad de los accionistas sobre la transparencia en RSC. Dentro de los distintos tipos de accionistas, la propiedad familiar y su efecto sobre los resultados...

...Universidad Santo Tomás Facultad de Administración Ingeniería Comercial VISIÓN CRÍTICA DE LA RESPONABILIDAD SOCIAL EMPRESARIAL (RSE) Autor: Ossandón Rios, Sebastián. Santiago, Chile. 2011 Introducción La organización, como cualquier otra institución humana, es susceptible a cambios y perfección en cualquiera de sus entornos, pero en fines comparativos, es más responsable que cualquier otra ya que, se lo impone la ley, porque el mercado se lo requiere y es necesario para dar seguridad y estabilidad a las personas que lo conforman. ¿Cuál es el pecado de la empresa? Hay quien apunta que su pecado original es que “la responsabilidad social de la empresa es que sus beneficios aumenten” lo explicitó Milton Friedman en 1970, destacado economista, intelectual y profesor de la Universidad de Chicago. Principalmente por quienes todavía no saben o fingen no entender cuál es la función de la empresa, qué es el beneficio y cómo funciona el mercado. Crear valor a la sociedad es la función de la empresa y si en su alcance genera beneficios, sueldos y rentas mucho mejor porque, aunque no es su esencia, es mérito añadido y señal de eficiencia. La organización tiene tres imperativos. El económico, o el aumento de valor de la misma, que orienta las decisiones de asignación y la inversión de los recursos; el ético, que colabora con los valores para preparar cómo hacer las cosas; y por último - pero no menos importante- el legal, aquellas costumbres y leyes que definen los......

Flinder Valves

...Appendix I. Statement of the Problem Bill Flinders’ FVC was an outgrowth of a small company organized in 1980 for engineering and developmental work on an experimental heat-exchanger product. In 1987, as soon as the product was bought to the commercial stage, Flinder Valves and Controls Inc. was organized to acquire the properties, both owned and leased, of the engineering corporation. FVC had come to RSE’s attention with the FVC’s disclosure of a U.S. government contract. RSE manufactured a broad range of products including advanced industrial components as well as chains, cables, nuts and bolts, castings and forgings, and other similar products. During the early part of 2008, a series of group meetings had taken place between Tom Eliot and Bill Flinder and their respective advisers. It seemed clear to both parties that both FVC and RSE could profit from the merger. Eliot had persuaded RSE’s board that the company should follow a policy of focused diversification, which would be achieved by an aggressive growth-by-acquisition program designed to create opportunities and entries into more dynamic markets than the ones RSE then served. FVC received various proposals from 1998 on, but none reached the stage of working out an agreement until the advances of RSE International Corporation. By early May 2008, a broad outline of the merger seemed to be developing. Flinder Valves was to become a subsidiary of RSE International—the deal would be structured in......

Flinder Valves

...Flinder Valves and Controls Inc. (FVC) oleh RSE International Corporation (RSE) pada awal 2008. Masa itu adalah masa krisis ekonomi di amerika serikat, kedua perusahaan tersebut merasakan dampak dari krisis tersebut. Tujuan dari dilakukannya akuisisi tidak lain karena kedua pemimpin perusahaan tersebut memikirkan tentang risiko dan peluang dari lingkungan manufaktur yang semakin menantang. Valve memproduksi banyak alat, hanya saja hampir 40% dari penghasilannya dan 50% dari keuntungannya berasal dari aplikasi khusus, yaitu berasal industri pertahanan dan kedirgantaraan. Hal ini tak lepas dari reputasi baik yang dimiliki FVC dalam lingkungan bisnisnya, sehingga mereka memiliki kontrak kerja untuk alat teknis bagi pemerintah. Pada 1980an perusahaan berkembang dibanding perusahaan lain di industrinya. Mereka membeli dan menyewa alat untuk keperluan produksinya, dan akhirnya setelah Bill Flinder melanjutkan tugasnya sebagai presiden FVC, dia mengakuisisi paten yang telah berlisensi. Tak ada masalah yang berarti dalam menggerakkan aktivitas-aktivitas di lingkungan bisnis mereka, baik itu bahan baku yang didapatkan dari supplier yang kompetitif, pemasaran, dan penjualan kepada perusahaan permesinan. Perusahaan Auden merupakan mitra dalam lingkungan bisnis FVC yang mendistribusikan dibawah perjanjian noneksklusif distributor, dimana Auden menjual 15% dari total penjualan FVC. Bahkan penjualan kepada negara asing, baik itu melalui Auden dan staff FVC, mencapai 30% dari total......

La Rse Mejora La ReputacióN Corporativa

...empresas transnacionales cuya imagen y reputación corporativa se ha visto afectada por diversas infracciones referentes a la responsabilidad social corporativa (RSE). Podemos mencionar como ejemplo a la empresa Nike que en la década de 1990 estuvo involucrada en trabajadores mal pagados en Indonesia, trabajo infantil en Camboya y Pakistán y pobre condiciones de trabajo en China y Vietnam (Locke, R., Fei, Q. & Brause, A., 2007); o el caso de Volkswagen EE.UU. que manipulaba los motores diésel para pasar los controles preventivos medioambientales (Del Portal, R., & Calvo, M., 2015), o a Toshiba cuya cultura organizacional presionaba a sus empleados de finanzas para hacer cuentas inapropiadas, pospongan los reportes de pérdidas o muevan costos a otros años. Los ejemplos mencionados tuvieron como consecuencia común lo siguiente: destrucción de la reputación corporativa. Y es que hoy en día es muy difícil ocultar los actos que atentan contra la RSE pues los medios de información y de comunicaciones han evolucionado de tal forma que están a disposición del común de las personas y, son éstas quienes finalmente mandan escritos, toman fotos, graban videos o audios para luego exponer sus quejas ante los organismos de auditoría estatales o a la prensa. Por otro lado, los efectos de las noticias acerca de los actos en contra de la RSE desde finales del siglo XX y ahora en el siglo XXI son más nocivos hacia la imagen y reputación de las empresas puesto que el mundo globalizado......

Flinder Valve Case Study

...W.B. “Bill” Flinder, the president of Flinder Valves and Controls Inc. (FVC), and Tom Eliot, the Chairman and CEO of RSE International are currently in the midst of negotiating a merger of FVC and RSE. Both companies are aware of the benefits, but also remain apprehensive due to the risks of completing an acquisition in the struggling economy. Prior to 2008, the U.S. manufacturing industry had experience a decrease in consumer demand because of tighter borrowing standards and a weak housing sector in the past year, according to a recent analyst. However, before May 2008, the U.S. began to experience better economic conditions, which provided FVC a better environment to introduce its new, hydraulic-controls system called the “widening gyre,” which can be used in the military industry. With this expensive program still under development, Bill Flinder realized the importance of merging with another company that was financially stable. Other factors contributed the negotiation. In addition to nearing retirement, Flinder also believe a merger with RSE would help the transition years for his employees. FVC and RSE should follow-through and complete the negotiation because one company’s strengths make up for the other’s weaknesses. Tom Eliot had recently proposed to the board of RSE to focus on diversification. FVC would help diversify RSE; they had the reputation of opening up opportunities for companies looking to diversify, plant capacity, management efficiency, financial......

Merger

...Flinders Valves & Controls Inc. (FVC) is located in Southern California. The firm manufactured specialty valves & heat exchangers. About 40% of volume & 50% of profit come from special application for the defense & aerospace industries. RSE International Corp was founded by Tom Eliot in 1970. In the year 2008, it manufactured a broad range of products including advanced industrial components as chains, cables, nuts & bolts, castings & forgings etc. The firm is considered a low-cost producer that possessed unusual production knowledge. The main issue discussed in this case study was the idea of merger between FVC and RSE could bring profit to both of the firms. First FVC become a subsidiary of RSE with the deal of preserving FVC identity. Then the two sides have explored some of the governance and compensation issues in the merger. The price of the deal was less clear as FVC traded on the NASDAQ and RSE traded on the American Stock Exchanges. The benefits of merger and acquisition between FVC and RSE were the new firm will have an increased market share which reduces competition. This reduction in competition can be damaging to the public interest, but help the firm to gain more profits. However both FVC and RSE will have no control power. However the question that has been discussed here was does FVC and RSE ready for merger and acquisition. The answered here is no as both firm didn’t analyze their current situation. Next both firm neither don’t have the proper......
