The ACG Cup is a case study competition designed to give students from leading MBA programs across the country real world experience and invaluable insights into mergers and acquisitions, investment banking, financial advisory and private equity. Each case study provides students with a unique opportunity to present valuation, capital markets and M&A strategic advice to a panel of seasoned M&A professionals from within the ACG community. The competition is carried out through a series of intra-school and regional competitions, with regional winners awarded the prestigious ACG Cup title and cash awards.
My work at ACG Cup was part of the Sierra Securities team, one of the top 4 teams at UC. The M&A strategy for ITGroup involved fundamental valuations through DCF, Market and Transaction Analysis models and a long-term growth strategy for next five years.
