Mergers and Acquisitions

The phrase Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) refers to the aspect of corporate strategy, corporate finance and management dealing with the buying, selling and combining of different companies that can aid, finance, or help a growing company in a given industry grow rapidly without having to create another business entity.

The firm engages in active research in the field of mergers and acquisitions. This research focuses on merger strategy and the valuation impact of the adoption of specific merger strategies. The firm’s work in this area includes independent research on the factors that cause some mergers to succeed and others to fail. This research is based upon the experience of companies who have successfully pursued certain merger strategies as well as those whose mergers have failed. We help our clients learn from the collective experience of other companies so that they do not make the same mistakes that other companies have.
