This is part of a case series. In spring 2012, Jordi Alves was facing some tough decisions. A year earlier, after a process that had lasted longer than expected, he had successfully raised the first search fund in Spain. He had then dedicated a full year to searching for a company to acquire and he now had what seemed like two good acquisitions on his desk. The question now was how to proceed. Which acquisition should he commit to? Should he proceed at all? Moreover, he was unclear about how to account for the current economic turmoil in Spain when evaluating the deals.
