Synopsis
With the recent international growth of mergers and acquisitions, this book presents what drives corporate performance amid the controversy under different economic conditions, both in the US and across the globe. Mergers and Acquisitions can play a key task in maintaining the efficiency of world markets due to economies of scale with corporate restructuring playing a very important role in the corporate financial setting. The contributors further examine the role that target firms and acquiring firms assume, whether value and synergy is created, and the legal environment and the regulation effect of financial markets on mergers and acquisitions on a global basis. Cases from around the world, including Canada, Australia and China, are also presented and discussed. Within the context of the explosive growth in the international mergers and acquisitions arena in recent years, this book investigates the effects of changes in corporate control under varying economic conditions. In countries all around the globe, mergers and acquisitions play a key role in increasing corporate value while corporate restructuring serves to reallocate assets to their highest valued uses. This volume examines the role played by both target firms and acquiring firms in these transactions, the effects of mergers and acquisitions on value, and the effects of the legal environment and market regulation on mergers and acquisitions in a global setting. In addition, case studies of specific mergers in different countries are examined to provide an in-depth view of these transactions. Greg N.
