Abstract:
Pernod Ricard is the world's third largest spirits and wine company behind Diageo and Allied Domecq. Its founder Chairman Ricard has transformed the French pastis business into a multinational wine and spirit maker by diversifying into other businesses like fruit juice manufacturing through a series of acquisitions. However, due to the declining profits and increasing debts, the company decided to focus on its core business, and began to divest its non-alcoholic operations since 2001. In 2004, Pernod Ricard was named the 'Best Company in Europe' by Global Finance magazine. In April 2005, the company announced a deal to buy Allied Domecq, which would transform Pernod Ricard into the second largest player in the industry.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To highlight the growth strategies of Pernod Ricard over the decades
  • To discuss the success of Pernod Ricard's acquisition of Allied Domecq and the prospects and challenges for the company.
