CIBC Investment Banking Competition

CIBC Investment Banking Competition

The CIBC Investment Banking Case Competition tasked teams of four with 48 hours to work on a simulated buy-side mandate for a leading Canadian restaurant brand. Most teams faced issues with structuring an accretive transaction with various combinations of cash, stock and debt. The process involved quantitative methods including DCF, comparables and LBO analysis. The finalists were invited to present their recommendations in front of CIBC Directors. Following the event, all participants were invited for an informal cocktail reception to connect with CIBC representatives. The top three teams were awarded with cash prizes.
