9780814413838: Mergers and Acquisitions from A to Z

Mergers and acquisitions represent a successful growth strategy for many companies, but, while potentially profitable, M&A transactions are complex and often risky. Covering the latest trends, developments, and best practices for the post-Madoff era, this comprehensive, hands-on resource walks readers through every step of the process, offering practical advice for keeping deals on track and ensuring postclosing integration success.

Filled with case studies and war stories illustrating what works and why, the third edition of Mergers and Acquisitions from A to Z offers valuable tools, checklists, and sample documents, providing crucial guidance on: preparing for and initiating the deal; regulatory considerations; due diligence; deal structure; valuation and pricing; and financing even during turbulent market conditions.

M&A transactions can quickly spell a company’s doom if they are not conceived and executed carefully, legally, and sensibly. This is the classic guide to mergers and acquisitions, now completely updated for today’s market.
