CCL would like to defer the profit on what they consider to be "excess" sales generated as the result of the looming price increase. CCL believes that 2001 sales will be lower because of the bottlers' overstocking to beat the January price increase. Management of CCL is convinced that bottlers are overstocking due to the frank and open discussions that they have had with the bottlers.

This means that firms should invest when the sum of the present values of future cash flows exceeds the initial project outlay. With M&A, the shareholder wealth maximization criterion is satisfied from the bidder’s perspective when the added value by the acquisition of a target company exceeds the cost of acquisition i.e. the transaction costs and the acquisition premium. Likewise, managers of targets would engage in M&A activity only if it results in gains to the target shareholders.
