In late November 2014, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Weight Multiplier (WM), Ms. Anne Konneman, was sitting in the office with her management board, discussing the two acquisition proposals the company had received. She believed that WM’s €28.21 share price before the offer announcement was underpriced but her task now was to maximise the shareholders’ value and to determine the desired deal structure. A number of investment banks were invited to assist on the deal including Rothschild’s Financial Advisory, Credit Suisse, and J.P. Morgan.
