Abstract

The RBS consortium's approach could become a trend and open up potential corporate holdings that were previously thought out of reach.

This paper looks at the advantages and drawbacks of group bidding, such as the problem of diversification for conglomerates and the market's tendency to value them at a discount to more focused companies.

Keywords: consortium, hostile, takeover, strategy, corporate, finance
