Mergers and acquisitions have become the most dramatic demonstration of vision and strategy in the corporate world. With one single move you can change the course of your company, the careers of your managers and create value for your shareholders. Throughout the last decade mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have dominated the world economic scene. International Mergers & Acquisitions focuses on the financial, cultural and strategic aspects of international M&A activity and has a global, cross-cultural perspective. It presents a strategic view of the M&A process, examining managerial decision making in the planning, execution and post-merger phases. This reader provides a long awaited addition to existing International Business texts. Although there is much research interest in the subject, it is the first of its kind to deliver information in a usable text for courses on mergers and acquisitions from an international point of view. International Mergers and Acquisitions therefore fills a gap and presents a state of the art survey of this vital global phenomenon. Suitable for MBA, MSc and senior undergraduate students of International Business and Strategic Management.
