Practice is key

If you ask most CFA members, they will tell you there is only one way to passing the CFA level 2 exam: practice, practice... and practice like it's the real exam. This is why AnalystPrep's method of teaching is better than other preparation materials out there: AnalystPrep provides you with what you will be seeing in your CFA2 exam - item sets. Each item set is made up of a case statement (usually 800-1000 words long) and 6 multiple choice questions with detailed answers.

Example of a CFA level 2 item set

Alcoa Intellect is an established software firm headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. It recently approached Comodo Solutions - one of its leading competitors - in an attempt to push through a merger that could consolidate Alcoa's position in the market and increase its market share. Unfortunately, Comodo's CEO turned down the offer without giving extensive details. Executives at Alcoa refused to give up. They are even prepared to adopt a hostile takeover approach.

Market reactions to the potential merger were significantly favorable. The market believes the merger would cultivate synergies which would increase future earnings of the firm to three times their current level.

Wary of rejection by Comodo's CEO, Alcoa is considering approaching the target's shareholders directly. This way, instead of purchasing an equity stake in the target outright, Alcoa hopes to convince current shareholders to cast their votes in favor of new directors nominated by Alcoa.

However, the CEO of Alcoa has indicated his preference to acquire Comodo through a tender offering. After thorough evaluation, analysts at Alcoa propose a two for three offering to the target's shareholders. Comodo Solutions currently has 12 million shares outstanding. Stock prices stand at $111 and $37 for Alcoa and Comodo respectively.

The management of Comodo had anticipated Alcoa's interest in its operations and had adopted a number of pre-offer takeover defenses. In its constitution, the firm had indicated that any individual or corporate entity that acquires and holds more than 20% of the shares outstanding will not be entitled to any voting rights. It had also included a fair price amendment stipulating that the floor bid should reflect the stock prices attained over the preceding three-year period. Exhibit 1 displays Comodo's quarterly stock prices over a three-year period.
