Product description

From the Inside Flap

Now in its seventh edition, Mergers, Acquisitions, and Corporate Restructurings is the revised seminal work that includes an all-inclusive guide to mergers and acquisitions and clearly shows how restructuring can be used to an organization's advantage. As the field of mergers and acquisitions continues to undergo tumultuous changes, this updated resource offers the most recent information on the topic. The text presents the history of mergers and acquisitions, a thoughtful analysis of the strategies and motives that lead to M&As, outlines the legalities involved for each step of the process, and presents the offensive and defensive techniques used during hostile acquisitions.

Written for CFOs, CEOs, controllers, and other financial professionals, the new seventh edition has been thoroughly updated and redesigned to be more approachable, manageable and concise. It includes the latest research, graphs, and case studies on the private equity market, ethics, legal frameworks, and corporate governance. The revised edition also contains an expanded chapter devoted to the valuation of businesses, including the valuation of privately held firms. This is an important topic, as a proper valuation can be the key between a successful and a failed transaction.

The author, Patrick Gaughan—a noted expert in the field—takes an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to highlighting material from the world of corporate finance, he draws on the most relevant information from the fields of law and economics. Bridging the gap between the practical and the academic, this important text integrates the skills and knowledge of finance practitioners with the current research from the world of academic finance.

The Seventh Edition of Mergers, Acquisitions, and Corporate Restructurings is the essential resource for anyone who is thinking of navigating successfully in today's highly competitive global marketplace.

I'm sure this would be a good, informative book were it not the fact that every other spread, from beginning to end, is rendered illegible and unreadable by a printing error.
