Mergers & Acquisitions.

Sometimes the best way to improve your competitive position in the marketplace is through a merger or acquisition.

What are mergers and acquisitions?

Wondering “What are mergers and acquisitions?” and why might you need them? Allow us to explain…

The term ‘merger’ describes the joining of two companies of the same size which are then owned and operated as one company. Both companies surrender their stocks to a new company stock which replaces them.

The term ‘acquisition’ describes when one company (let’s call it ‘Company A’) takes over another (‘Company B’) and is established as the new owner under the Company A’s name. From a legal perspective, Company B is absorbed by Company A and ceases to exist, no longer trading under its prior ownership.

Not only are these complex and time consuming processes, but if the decision to merge or acquire is not well researched and skilfully negotiated it could make matters worse, not better.
