Overview

Creating Value from Mergers and Acquisitions 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 me increased.

Creating Value from Mergers and Acquisitions is suitable for those studying advanced undergraduate and MBA courses in industrial organisations, finance, business strategy, and corporate governance, as well as those preparing for professional exams. The rigorous integration of the conceptual, empirical, and practical aspects of M&A means that researchers and practitioners will also find this book extremely useful.
