From the Author

Comprehensive
Dear Readers:

Welcome to the wonderful world of M&A financing. J. Fred Weston and I are pleased to publish this guide to sources and instruments for growth.

To give you a flavor of this new work, here is a quote from the book jacket:

"The expansion of a business through merger or acquisition involves experience. Wisdom. The ability to envision how two or more combined companies can equal far more than the sum of their parts. It also involves, more often than not, 'other people's money.' The Art of M&A Financing & Refinancing tells you how to obtain and repay that money. It takes the complex, technical aspects of M&A finance and makes them clear, understandable, and applicable to your situation. Do you need to estimate the total cost of financing a business? Look in Chapter 2. When might preferred stock by more advantageous than subordinated debt? Look in Chapter 3. The special tax issues that you can ordinarily expect in a management buyout? Look in Chapter 10."

As you can see, we have aimed to be comprehensive. For your information, we have listed the Table of Contents below. We hope you enjoy scrolling down….and reading up….on M&A Financing and Refinancing.

In The Art of M&A Financing and Refinancing, today's preeminent M&A authorities Alexandra Reed Lajoux
and J. Fred Weston take you straight to the sources of that money, drawing on their considerable combined expertise to clarify every aspect of the use of outside financing to expand a company. In the clear, concise Q&A format that has become a hallmark of McGraw-Hill's Art of M&A series, Lajoux and Weston explain how to develop a strategic vision for M&A financing and how to use the correct tools to turn that
vision into a reality. They detail key topics such as: how to chosse and locate the most appropriate type of financing debt, equity, or hybrid; the roles of the intermediaries backers, lenders, or underwriters who play such a vital role in M&A financing; legal, tax, and accounting questions commonly encountered while financing a
merger. The financing of mergers and acquisitions, whether local mom-and-pop collaborations or multibillion dollar global megadeals, is indispensable to survival and growth for many companies in today's highly competitive economic climate. The Art of M&A Financing and Refinancing covers the entire spectrum from basic definitions of financing to taxation of international deals and makes understandable
the complex, technical aspects of M&A financing and refinancing.
