The Cleveland Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) held a day-long merger advisory competition in which they invited teams of graduate students from five schools–Baldwin Wallace, Case Western Reserve, Cleveland State, Kent State, and Ohio State–to participate in a week-long analysis of a real-world merger case developed by Houlihan Lokey, a boutique investment banking firm based in Chicago and Los Angeles. 

This case was used by dozens of ACG regional competitions across the country including the competition held on January 15, 2010 at the Union Club.  The event involved twenty minutes student presentations to a panel of judges, and a group who role played the Board of Directors and family owners of the target company.  The panel of judges included senior professionals from investment banking, consulting and private equity (LBO) firms such as Riverside Capital and Kirtland Capital.

The Weatherhead School of Management was represented by two teams:

Team 1–Brice Banctel (Accelerated MBA), Alex Manders (Part-Time MBA), Nick Perini (Full-Time MBA) and Keith Rohr (Full-Time MBA)

Team 2–Oswin Anthony (MS-Finance), Junling Chen (MS-Finance), Ming Lin (MS-Finance) and Fabian Sandi (Exchange MBA)

Both teams did an outstanding job and represented themselves and the Weatherhead School of Management proudly.  Team 1 placed first overall, winning a cash prize, an invitation to the Cleveland ACG Deal Maker’s Award dinner, and an all-expense paid trip to Miami for Intergrowth, the national ACG conference.

Team 1 were honored on Thursday, January 21, 2010 at the 14th Annual ACG Cleveland Deal Maker Awards.
