M&A Case Competition
This year, YUDI held its first annual M&A Case Competition to provide members with the opportunity to apply the skills they learn through our educational program. Teams of 2-3 members were given a hypothetical scenario where they serve as investment bankers and pitch a strategic acquisition for a company of their choosing. Teams had to build a full merger model, multiple valuation models, and a comprehensive slide deck with comprehensive industry research and an investment thesis.
Over 40 teams competed this year, submitting exceptional presentations and models. Teams had to defend their acquisition theses in multiple interviews, including a final round held by industry professionals.
