Corporate Restructuring Pitch Project Report for Barclays Investment Bank M&A Team

As a member of the M&A team of Barclays Investment Bank, your group of four (groups will be assigned randomly with list uploaded on Blackboard) has just been selected by the department head, Mr. Joshua Kane, and tasked to identify a corporate restructuring candidate for the bank.

Upon successful identification of a suitable corporate restructuring candidate, a FTSE 350 company (with at least 3-years of historical financials), your group/team will be required to prepare a pitch to some of your prime clients for an acquisition in the UK. To convince your clients about the viability of your analysis, it is expected that your group/team will use the pitch to demonstrate substantial value creation through a full-fledged corporate restructuring plan.

To provide you with appropriate support and ensure that you meet the above target, the first requirement necessitates that you prepare a project report to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Barclays Investment Bank and a brief presentation as an appendix (not exceeding 10 slides) to convince him that you did a good valuation exercise. Your ability to convince the CEO qualifies you for a big bonus after the exercise.

The CEO expects to see the following in your report (2,500 words +/- 10%, excluding references and appendices) and will give the following weight allocation for each section of the report: 


1. Brief background analysis of the macro and market environment in which the company operates (up to 5%)

2. Company Analysis: Full analysis of the company’s operational and financial performance over the historical period, including a Du Pont analysis, debt repayment capacity, and internal capital generation analysis (up to 20%)

3. Swot And Pestle  of the company (up to 10%)

4. Summaries your findings from steps 1 to 3 (up to 5%)


Make key recommendations on what is needed to restructure the chosen company and demonstrate in a quantifiable manner how much value will be created based on your recommended course of action, verses if the company were to stay in its as-is situation.

o Valuation of the selected company’s stock should be based on DDM, P/E multiples, and DCF Analysis.

Please explain any calculations you do in a separate file


1. Demonstrate use of any tools applied in this class or in other courses you have covered already (up to 5%)

2. Demonstrate the use of critical thinking through your submission by connecting to useful materials discussed in class or other classes (up to 10%)

3. Your report should be well structured, written intelligently, with an executive summary, table of contents, and loosely follow the DMU report writing structure (DMU, 2019f).  All citations should be in accordance with the Harvard system of referencing and should be presented alphabetically (DMU, 2019a) (up to 5%)

4. Appendix 1: Presentation to the Chief Executive Officer of Barclays Investment Bank (not more than 10 slides) to convince him that you have a winning proposal (up to 5%)

5. Appendix 2: Non-graded. Please make sure to include a group work plan which shows who has worked on which sections of your report.
