I want you to research activist hedge fund company Starboard Value’s methodologies (I’ve provided some valuable links below) and to find a company that you think is a prime target for major restructuring like Yahoo and Olive Garden (two of Starboard’s more recent and famous takeovers.) APA format 6-7 pages.
1. Research and discuss Starboard’s criteria and methodology. How do they select a company? What are its criteria? How do they go about their process of exerting control over the company.
2. You are a Senior Analyst working there. Find and investigate a potential company you think would be a suitable target for Starboard. What characteristics make the target company a good candidate based off your research? Conversely, what might make them not such a good candidate?
3. Assuming you gained a strong position in the company’s equity, what problems do you see with the company that need to be overcome. What corrective actions would you suggest the company make?
