  • Summarize the key points of the article in one typed page or less.
  • Develop a profile of the firm discussed in your article, including stock price graphs, leverage and profitability history, and competitive position.
  • Write an essay which relates the issues in the article to specific topics studied in Corporate finance or to value creation in general.

Additional outside sources may also be included if relevant and helpful. The article should be fairly recent, such as from the past year. Expect to read a number of articles as you attempt to select the one that you use for this project.

Keep in mind: Major articles that focus on a specific company event will work best.
