This case is a relatively straightforward exercise in valuing a potential acquisition target. The case affords students an opportunity to use both discounted cash flow and multiples in their analyses.

The latter two objectives arise if the case is used as an examination. Case Exhibit 1 poses the relevant questions for student preparation.
