Mergers and Acquisitions
Text and Cases



November 2006 | 464 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Mergers and Acquisitions: Text and Cases provides guiding frameworks and information on Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), complemented by a set of well-matched cases.  The purpose is not to rehash the existing set of M&A books, but to provide real-world examples of situations that allow the reader to utilize the core concepts and processes in M&A.  The authors present a process-based framework of M&A, within which the reader is given in-depth information about the steps in doing deals.  The reader then has the ability to apply these concepts and frameworks to the full-length cases.  The book can be used as a stand-alone text because it provides good coverage of the entire M&A process.  In order to more specifically focus on any particular aspect of M&A, the text can easily be supplemented with focused materials.
