Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.

by William E. Fruhan


This case allows instructors to explore shareholder value creation and transfer opportunities in merger and acquisition transactions. It also invites an examination of corporate governance issues surrounding CEO compensation. This case is quite brief (a total of 4 pages) so the balance between thinking time and reading set-up time for students is quite attractive.
