American Greetings is a case study given out by Crestview.

This case study follows the standard three statement LBO model and investment memo format. Similar to other case studies that use this format, what will differentiate a candidate is their ability to properly grasp the most important drivers of the underlying business and succinctly summarize what makes the opportunity attractive and how potential risks could be mitigated.

Within the "Strategic Evaluation" portion of the case there is a question on what major concerns lenders may have about the business. It is crucial that a candidate provide a fleshed out answer to this question, as procuring significant leverage is a key driver of returns for this business.
