This book provides a ''macro'' overview of mergers and acquisitions, business alliances, and corporate restructuring. It concentrates on the processes and their players - investment bankers, business brokers, accountants, attorneys, tax experts, managers, investors, and others - and a dynamic series of actions with often-unforeseen implications. Written for those who seek a broadly-based view of M and A, this heavily illustrated mix of theoretical and empirical work eschews descriptions of individual events in favor of presenting an integrated portrait of a team effort in which the skills of various participants combine to achieve consensus among the parties to the negotiation.
This title describes a broad view of the mergers and acquisition process to illustrate agents'' interactions. It simplifies without overgeneralizing. It bases conclusions on empirical evidence, not experience and opinion.
It features a recent business case at the end of each chapter.
