FINANCE SIMULATION: M&A IN WINE COUNTRY
To solve quantitative and qualitative research in business finance. In this multi-player simulation, students each play the role of a CEO at 1 of 3 publicly traded wine producers: Bel Vino, Starshine, or International Beverage. Bel Vino and Starshine consider a merger-of-equals transaction while International Beverage considers acquiring either Bel Vino or Starshine. Students review confidential information to determine the value and set reservation prices before negotiating deal terms. Stock prices rise and fall in reaction to the formal bidding process and help create a dynamic and competitive negotiation environment. The simulation is entirely web-based and a built-in chat feature allows students to negotiate privately online.
