or alter the course of action? Why?
Which factors are key to consider in order to make an informed decision about
this case? Why?
(Max. 500 words)
Start writing here:
The capital management company, blue wolf has the strategy of investing in
distressed companies, which have a probability of being turn around. Thus the company
seeks to find companies which are in distress, but have a strong business as its core and
has the probability of being turn around in the future.
The company Pictou pulp was for sale in the year 2008, which was the beginning
of the global recession. The recession caused by the housing bubble along with the
credit crisis affected all the industries and spread to almost every country. Thus due to
the global recession many lumbering industries went for a closure, while some had to lay
almost most of their employee to still be in business.
The competition in the industry was getting reduced due to the closure of many
companies in the industry. Thus, it would lead the company to get an advantage over the
industry due to less concentration. However, at that point of time since every industry
was going through a recession, a turnaround of the economy is possible in the future
which can lead to the rise in the profits for the company.
