Case 5: Chrysler: Ratio Analysis
[pic]
Before Chrysler merged to become DaimlerChrysler AG, they were presented with a takeover bid of $55 per share by MGM billionaire Kirk Kerkorian and former Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca. Kirk Kerkorian was a stockholder in Chrysler and an experienced takeover financier who apparently found Chrysler to be a good buy. Chryslerrejected the offer, however, stating that the firm was not for sale. Further, many Wall Street experts felt that Kerkorian could not come up with the $20 billion necessary to complete the deal.
After Chrysler rejected Kirk Kerkorian's bid of $55 per share, Kerkorian decided to have his people repeat the analysis of the firm's financial performance over the two most recent years to determine if heshould increase his bid in this friendly takeover attempt. To measure the financial performance of Chrysler over the past two years, key financial ratios will have to be computed and compared with industry averages. To help in this endeavor, Chrysler's financial statements are found on the following pages.
