Product Description

From the Back Cover

“Simply a ‘must read’ for all persons who require a broad understanding of the various issues involving planning and executing acquisitions and mergers”—Tom Berglund, Professor of Finance, Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration, Helsinki, Finland.

 

 

Creating Value from Mergers and Acquisitions the Challenges is the first book to provide a comparative analysis of the M&A scene in Europe and the US, the two most active markets in the world. Now in its second edition it continues to develop an international and multidisciplinary perspective of M&A, and considers M&A as a process and not a mere transaction. The author draws upon economics, finance, strategy, law, organisational theories to formulate a five-stage model and emphasises the need to understand the interconnected nature of these stages. The book’s central focus in on the challenges to using M&A as an instrument to create shareholder value, how M&A risks can be mitigated and how odds of success in acquisitions can be increased.

 

Classic features:

 

  • Short illustrations in every chapter highlight standard practices and explain complex issues
  • User-friendly tables and figures make complex empirical data easier to comprehend
  • Most chapters contain a short case study to highlight important issues.
  • Case studies and review questions enable further discussion and study
  • Chapter overviews at the end of each chapter highlight the discussions implications for M&A practice
  • Provides a balanced treatment of M&A, drawing upon the conceptual, empirical, and practitioner perspectives
  • Emphasises critical examination and empirical validation of theoretical predictions

 

New to this edition:

Format: Paperback
Initially borrowed this book from the Business School for an MBA course. I would say it is the best book I have found so far for studying M&A related subjects. The author of the book clearly has very extensive experience and deep knowledge of the subject. Topics are clearly explained and cover the whole M&A transaction process. The strategies and tactics descibed are very well described. It is also a very useful book for desktop reference. So I decided to buy the book!

By Culture Enthusiast TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 17 Aug. 2013
Format: Paperback
Outstanding text on M&As, very comprehensive. it touches upon all aspsects of the deals from strategy/synergies, types of mergers to valuation, antitrust legislation and HR issues. I really like the focus on European deals in addition to the US one. The section on defence strategies is by itself worth the price of the book.

The information is up to date and it is a book where also the notes at the end of the chapters add value. It is definetely aimed at people with business experience or/and MBA students.
Such a shame it is not available in Kindle version. One of the best books on M&As on the market (and I have read a lot of them!).

The only minor issue is that there is not a list of the cases presented in the book and if you read something of interest with regards to a case you have to search in the entire book as there is no index.

As the core text book in my MBA course, the five stages is designed to guide my learning process from pre to post M&A activities. This book covers all topics associated with M&A arena and it will equip anyone with a good understanding about the theories, empirical practices and primary and secondary research outcomes. Definitely it is an ideal choice for any MBA student and business manager who are interested in M&A activities in this global dynamic business context. Highly recommended.

This is a great book for anyone who is on or planning to do an MBA and wants to focus on M&A. It takes you through not only the fundamentals but provides lots of examples illustrating the points. Thoroughly recommended.

Format: Paperback
The author is both extensive in his coverage of all aspects of M&A including citing real world examples and simple in his explanation of complex theories and behaviours. Without a doubt, this is a book well worth acquiring if one is interested in M&A either as a student or as business manager about to engage in M&A activity.
