Reference: IMD-3-1233

The (B) case is the second in a two-part series on how Gautam Thapar restructured Ballarpur Industries, the flagship of his family’s group of companies. The (B) case closely examines Gautam’s restructuring program and efforts over a period of three years and his decision to acquire a competitor. Despite his hard work, the company’s share price did not regain its pre-restructuring levels. The (B) case closes with the question: is this acquisition the right move from a timing, financial and strategic perspective?
