Examining how M&A fits in corporate growth strategies, Maximizing Corporate Value through Mergers and Acquisitions covers the various strategic reasons for companies entering mergers and acquisitions (M&A), with a look at those that are based on sound strategy, and those that are not.

  • Helps companies decide whether M&As should be used for growth and increased corporate value
  • Explores why M&A deals often fail to deliver what their proponents have represented they would
  • Explains which types of M&A work best and which to avoid

With insider guidance on what boards of directors should be aware of when evaluating proposed deals, Maximizing Corporate Value through Mergers and Acquisitions provides a sound foundation for understanding the risks involved in any mergers and acquisitions deal, before it's too late.
