M&A

Mergers and acquisitions occur every day in the business world, with major transactions often garnering large newspaper headlines. Even less significant M&A deals are closely followed since their impact is felt on multiple fronts. Your company, in fact, may have been purchased by another entity, or you’re hearing rumors about an impending deal. Abstract’s M&A category covers virtually every aspect of mergers and acquisitions, from the financial particulars to the implications for your workforce. In summarizing the leading books on M&A trends, our writers highlight pertinent information that will broaden your knowledge base. You’ll learn how economic conditions influence decisions to pursue mergers and why M&A strategy ultimately seeks to improve operational efficiency and increase value for shareholders. You’ll read about high-profile mergers that succeeded and others that fell short of expectations.

High Stakes

Mergers and acquisitions is a high-stakes game in which CEOs often put their reputations on the line. getAbstract takes you behind the scenes and into the boardrooms where million-dollar decisions are hashed out and the future of hundreds of employees may hang in the balance. We’ll explain why some mergers and acquisitions are the result of mutually respectful negotiations while others are hostile and fraught with resentment. Though you may not have first-hand experience with a merger, acquisition or takeover, through getAbstract you’ll gain insight and an appreciation of the complexities of M&A. Plus, you won’t be taken totally by surprise if one day a merger or acquisition appears on your horizon.
