Balachandran, Balasingham and Fazzino, James and Shams, Syed (2020) A case study on Incitec Pivot's acquisition strategy of dyno nobel. Pacific-Basin Finance Journal, 63:101386. pp. 1-10. ISSN 0927-538X


Abstract

We present a case study on Incitec Pivot Limited's (“IPL”) acquisition strategy during a major stock market swing to demonstrate how valuation aberrations can be leveraged to create long term value for shareholders. We discuss the management strategies, structures, and ideology of IPL and critically analyze its acquisition of Dyno Nobel Limited (“Dyno”). Furthermore, we highlight how IPL's acquisition of Dyno transformed its business from an Australian based fertilizer company into the world's 2nd largest explosives company - with operations in 13 countries, 21 major chemical facilities and around 5000 employees.
