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. Writtten 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..
Students and professionals around the world who are studying or working in mergers and acquisitions. The book is especially useful for readers who seek material that lies between intensive and superficial coverage of these subjects. It requires only passing acquaintance with finance, economics, business law, and accounting.
