Description for case is given below :
In the summer of 1991, the chairman of this diversified company is contemplating whether to proceed to raise (in British pounds) GBP32 million in new equity following the surprising news that the firm will produce losses for the calendar year. This news represents a dramatic departure from analysts’ expectations for the firm. Should British Aerospace issue shares immediately, before the entire impact of the news is absorbed by investors, or wait? The case can be used to introduce students to the rights-offering method of selling shares of common stock, the principal method of share issuance in Europe. This case is also an excellent vehicle for exploring the moral hazard inherent in the information asymmetry between managers and investors; the situation presented here illustrates the potential for opportunism theorized by Myers and Majluf. The B case presents the epilogue, in which investors react violently to the adverse news and the announced rights offering. The chairman loses his job; the share price settles at half its former value. Ultimately, this case series permits students to explore the possible definitions of success in securities issuance.

Description for case is given below :
In July 2004, Bombardier Aerospace announced its intention to develop a new family of aircraft called CSeries. In May 2007, three years after the initial announcement, the final decision on whether to proceed with the initiative was still pending. Moreover, during this period, the company released several confusing announcements that raised concerns among investors and industry analysts regarding the sustainability of the company’s long-term strategy. In the meantime, Brazilian Embraer had invested heavily in research and development (R&D) and taken the leadership position in the regional aircraft segment from Bombardier. Consequently, Bombardier was faced with a serious dilemma: launch or not launch the CSeries project. Whatever the decision was, it was expected to have a major impact on the future market positioning of Bombardier. Students may be asked to act as advisors to Pierre Beaudoin, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Bombardier Aerospace, and recommend whether the company should proceed with the CSeries initiative. More specifically, students should do a full analysis of the company’s external environment, identify the alternatives available to Beaudoin, assess these options based on internal and external environments and recommend a course of action. For Beaudoin, the recommendation was due before the annual meeting of shareholders, scheduled on May 29, 2007.
