EY Case Study Prompt

A turnaround specialist has retained your services to help him evaluate a medium-sized lumber company as a potential acquisition.

He wants your help to determine whether the acquisition is worthwhile or not.

Case Study Overview

In this EY-Parthenon case study, your client is evaluating a potential acquisition and has brought you in to help determine whether to move forward or not.

You can solve the EY case study by applying the M&A Framework – but don’t rely too heavily on the basic frameworks. Consulting firms want to see you create a custom framework for the problem at hand, whether in a case interview, or on the job.

This EY case study is a good first-round case to practice with. There are no math diagrams in the case.
