yea that could be or i am thinking Northern Rock
I wouldn't have thought Nothern Rock because my business teacher knows the chief examiner and he says that the papers are normally written well in advance. I'd have guessed it would have been written before the whole Nothern Rock episode. This is why I like the sound of Tescos. It was big news months ago, easily before the paper would have been written.

Lol. No, unfortunately, I do not have any tip offs from any dodgey people. I am simply guessing! Someone else posted on this forum that they thought it was going to be on Tescos. I am just saying that it would definitely be a feasible company to have in the case study on Tuesday! No don't worry Tescos have not gone under! Do you not remember when Tescos was covered in the news a lot? When they published their profit figures and they were classed as Britain's biggest retailer? It was a big business news story that AQA could easily base their case study on. Would you not agree?

They will always mention anything you need to know in the exam, dont waste time learning about them incase htey dont come up because that could be valuable time actually learning stuff such as contingency plans.

Anything we need to know should be in the case study. So even "if" the exam was on tesco, you don't need to worry about that now. Again, I AM NOT SAYING it is on Tesco for sure.

Management buyouts are simply when managers of a firm decide to buy its shares so that they actually own the business. The implications include: higher motivation for the managers because the success or failure of the business now has a bigger impact on them. Also they get to make all the decisions and owning the shares in the business means they keep all of the profits too. The major downside is that in order to finance buyouts, it you usually requires heavy borrowing. Therefore the high gearing ratio could have a major impact on the profitability of the business due to the high interest repayments. Its fairly simple topic. Does that help?

I need about 90 ums marks to get an A overall in this exam argggg scarey!

Management buy out is when the managers of a business take it over by buying a controlling interest in its shares. It might happen when the original owners feel the performance of this firm is likely to decline in the future - but the managers believe it can be successful.

However, managers will need to finance a buy out - so may have to borrow money as it is unlikely that they have enough personal funds to deal themselves.

Buy outs = high gearing (loans) and high interest payments. This can put pressure on the managers to ensure the firm performs well to cover these costs.

Buy outs are also stressful. By taking over the firm, managers will become totally responsible for the success/failure of the firm. They must take all decisions and if the business does fail they will personally lose money.

So overall:

Advantages
- managers role has changed, more control and therefore higher profits (if successful)
- If business is successful they'll keep the rewards - this is motivating

Disadvantages
- Need money to finance buy out
- means high gearing, and high interest payments
- if it fails, managers will lose personal money
- stressful

Not sure what else sorry!
