Practical Guide to Mergers, Acquisitions, and Divestitures
Mergers and acquisitions (M&A), driven by globalization, long-term markets, and various barriers to growth, often result in new organizations whose financial and strategic options are much improved. Thus, mergers and acquisitions can be a valuable tool by which companies can quickly attempt to increase revenue. This course discusses all facets of M&A and divestitures, such as types, structures, the process, valuation methods, tax implications, essential compliance requirements (e.g. SEC filing, accounting rules), and financial analysis of combinations.
