10 pages
December 2006
Reference: IMD-3-1647

D3 is a private equity investor who took over AMT and intended a fast turnaround. The case is the exact mirror image of the A case, but written from the investor’s point of view to illustrate how subjective reality and perceptions may be. Several corporate governance dilemmas emerge when the investor got involved and when tough means were necessary to ensure a successful turnaround.
