Product Overview

What are the agency costs of management-owner conflicts? In this case, Tyson Foods attempts to acquire WLR Foods. But WLR management and the poultry farmers who own 20% of it actively oppose the takeover. A B case (UVA-F-1466) and both student (UVA-F-1465X) and instructor (UVA-F-1465TNX) spreadsheets are available to enhance the learning experience.

Learning Objectives

The case provides data that allows students to estimate stand-alone and with-synergies DCF valuations of WLR Foods. It is designed for use in a first-year MBA finance course, but is also suitable for executive and undergraduate audiences.
