Assignment 1:

 

Dale Emerson served as the chief financial officer for Reliant Electric Company, a distributor of

electricity serving portions of Montana and North Dakota. Reliant was in the final stages of

planning a takeover of Dakota Gasworks, Inc. a natural gas distributor that operated solely

within North Dakota. Emerson went on a weekend fishing trip with his uncle, Ernest Wallace.

Emerson mentioned to Wallace that he had been putting in a lot of extra hours at the office

planning a takeover of Dakota Gasworks. On returning from the fishing trip, Wallace met with a

broker from Chambers Investments and purchased $20,000 of Reliant stock. Three weeks later,

Reliant made a tender offer to Dakota Gasworks stockholders and purchased 57% of Dakota

Gasworks stock. Over the next two weeks, the price of Reliant stock rose 72% before leveling

out. Wallace then sold his Reliant stock for a gross profit of $14,400.
