Jinwoong Financing an Entrepreneurial Firm in the Wake of the Korean Financial Crisis

Case Solution

Describes T.P. Lee, the founder and CEO of Jinwoong, a 19-year-old entrepreneurial company in Korea that has grown to become the world's largest manufacturer of camping tents. Labeled by Fortune as one of the most promising entrepreneurs in Asia in 1993, Lee faces some serious management challenges by October 1998. Largely due to the Korean financial crisis of 1997-98, Lee must rethink the financing and expansion plans for his firm. To deal with these challenges, he could seek outside funding from two different groups of private equity investors or from a corporate restructuring fund set up by the Korean government. All of these decisions reflect Jinwoong's long-term strategy and Lee's assessment of the different offers.
