Mergers and Acquisitions are considered as a significant exercise in the corporate restructuring. With the rise of the financial crises in organisations across the world, there has been an augment in the number of corporate invasions and mergers. Therefore, the announcement of this strategy has become a part of a successful business. In the challenging international business environment and damaged economy, all organisations are seeking such kinds of eccentric techniques for comparative advantage. However, this announcement has both positive and negative impacts. Between two firms, the practice of Mergers and Acquisitions changes the share prices of both acquirer and target firms.
In this chapter, we first provide coverage of expansion through corporate takeovers and an overview of the consolidation process. Then we present the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations followed by limited coverage of the purchase method and pooling of interests provided in a separate sections.
Mergers and acquisitions have become a growing trend for companies to inorganically grow a business within its particular industry. There are many goals that companies may be looking to achieve by doing this, but the main reason is to guarantee long-term and profitable growth for their business. Companies have to keep up with a rapidly increasing global market and increased competition. With the struggle for competitive advantage becoming stronger and stronger, it is almost essential to achieve these mergers. Through research I will attempt to dissect the best practices for achieving merger success.
Merger motives that are questionable on economic grounds are diversification, purchase of assets below replacement cost, and control. Managers often state that diversification helps to stabilize a firm's earnings and reduces total risk, hence benefits shareholders. Stabilization of earnings is certainly beneficial to a firm's employees, suppliers, customers, and managers. However, if a stock investor is concerned about earnings variability, he or she can diversify more easily than the firm can. Why should Firm A and Firm B merge to stabilize earnings when stockholders can merely purchase both stocks and accomplish the same thing? Further, we know that well-diversified shareholders are more concerned with a stock's market risk than with its total risk, and higher earnings instability does not necessarily translate into higher market risk.
The goals of mergers range from reducing the number of competitors, to access of new products (Belcourt et al., p 330). Statistics show that 80% of new product developments fail (Howells, 2011), partly due to challenges and conflicts with human resources functions. Mergers and acquisitions are the fastest way to enter new markets. “It is estimated that 1/3 of all mergers fail due to faulty integration of diverse operations and cultures,” (Chhinzer, 2013). Therefore, the success of a merger or acquisition lies in the ability to guide, motivate, retain, and effectively use
According to the researchers the increased value results from an opportunity to utilize a specialized resources which arises solely as a result of the merger (Jensens & Ruback, 1983; Bradle, Desai and Kim , 1983). For creating operational and financial synergies managers believe that two enterprises will be worth more if merged than if operates as two separate entities. Thus, the two companies, A and B:
Haspeslagh and Jemison (1987), argue that what determines the success of a acquisition is not the actual purchase itself, but the development of the acquisition strategy the supports. Unfortunately, many executives face the acquisitions as an end, not a means to achieve that end. According to this author, the acquisition is only one strategy business growth. There are others as internal growth, joint venture, partnership, franchise and strategic alliance. All should be evaluated by the company before implementing a business development strategy. A proper analysis of the acquisition goes beyond the study's own candidate company. It must include a contribution from the analysis of potential acquisition for the strategic development, as well as

Careful thinking about what it means for an acquisition to succeed, coupled with an analysis of why deals fail, can lead to some practical advice for managers, thus helping them to develop a more refined view. More specifically, in order for acquisitions to pay off, they ought to pass four tests. I describe the tests below, showing how each offers a way to head off common sources of merger malfunction.
Issues investigated in this report will be discussed neutrally and objectively. However, there are still numbers of limitations in this report due to many factors. First of all is the biasness of the information collected from the interview of employees in the company. These information may not be neutral and trustworthy; or even misleading. Also, lacking of time is another limitation of this report. Since this consulting report is conducted within a limited time, the consultant cannot address all issues but major points preventing the merger goes smoothly. In addition, financial issues, which can also be a factor
This critique will review the article “Stock or Cash? The Trade-Offs for Buyers and Sellers in Mergers and Acquisitions” by Alfred Rappaport & Mark L. Sirower. The purpose of this article is to offer managers and stockholders a new way to think through the process of acquiring or selling a company. Also, this article provides insight about when it would be helpful to use cash, stock, or a mixture of both. According to the article, mergers and acquisitions have become a new means for a company to grow. In years previous, mergers were paid for entirely in cash. Now however, mergers are seen being paid for all in stock. This article allows managers and stockholders to ask themselves necessary questions in order to make the decision that is
Merger and acquisition is a corporate strategy entailing the selling, buying, and combining or dividing business entities in a bid to facilitate rapid recovery or growth. A merger is distinguished from an acquisition in the sense that an acquisition entails a take-over. A merger involves a combination of business assets of two companies forming an entirely new one ADDIN EN.CITE Mehnert2008259(Mehnert, 2008)2592596Mehnert, M.Negotiation: Definition and Types, Manager's Issues in Negotiation, Cultural Differences and the Negotiation Process2008Santa Cruz, CA 95060Hammer, Patrick, Tanja Hammer, Matthias Knoop, Julius Mittenzwei, Georg Steinbach u.
