Vic Young and Fishery Products International (A)
(14 pages of text)
Fishery Products International Ltd. is one of the largest seafood companies in North America. In January 2000, Vic Young marked his 15th anniversary as the only chief executive officer of the company. Under his leadership, the company overcame the collapse of the North Atlantic fishery to become an international seafood company and an important contributor to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy. However, its share price has languished and the company was recently the target of a hostile takeover bid. The bid was unsuccessful, due partly to government regulation on the company's stock ownership, but Young realizes another attempt is possible, and wonders how to maintain shareholder confidence in its current board and management team.
