Handbook of International Mergers and Aquisitions
Mergers and acquisitions continue to grow rapidly in transaction numbers and volume worldwide, bringing about radical changes to the corporate landscape. The enactment of mergers and acquisitions, particularly in cross border transactions, involves complex economic, legal, technical, and social procedures, closely interlinked and embracing several sectors and disciplines. This comprehensive and interdisciplinary handbook addresses the issues involved in effecting mergers and acquisitions internationally. The authors' practice-oriented approach follows the normal course of the transactions through the planning phase, the execution phase and the post-merger integration/implementation phase, providing managers, investment bankers, legal advisors, accountants and academics with an in-depth understanding of the factors necessary for success and the means to understand and improve transaction management and create new economic values.
