Mergers & ACquisitions
Mergers & Acquisitions can be defined as a type of restructuring or reorganizing the business entity with the aim of achieving positive growth in the organization. Mergers & Acquisitions are both aspects of Corporate Strategy, Corporate Finance and Corporate Management dealing with buying, selling, merging and demerging of different companies and similar business entities into one. This can lead to an extensive growth of the enterprise not only in its own sector or area of origin but also in a new field or a new location. And the best part is that the enterprise can achieve this without creating a subsidiary or getting into a Joint Venture. M & A is a part of the consolidation process the organization undertakes for future prospects in the industry it operates in.
There is a very thin line of distinction between Mergers & Acquisitions particularly with respect to the present economic scenario. From a legal point of view, a Merger is a legal consolidation of two companies into one entity, whereas an Acquisition occurs when one company takes over another and establishes itself as the new owner. Either of the two structures can be helpful in the financial and economic consolidation of the two entities.
