Re: Basic idea about MERGER and ACQUISITION

Basically if we talk about merger, then it is the purchase of one firm by another and if we talk about the term acquisition is the grouping of two firms into a new authorized unit. Here a new company is being formed. Merger and Acquisition culture seems to come through increasing globalization. This is what i would like to tell you about the merger and acquisition.

Re: Basic idea about MERGER and ACQUISITION

I would like to say few things about the acqusition. When two companies combine together to form a new company altogether, then it is known as acquisition. An acquisition can be private or public. I would like to give you an example of the acquisition. The merger of Chase Manhattan Corporation with J.P. Morgan & Company and the name of the new company formed as a result of the merger is J.P. Morgan Chase & Company. I think i have provided you bit info.

Re: Basic idea about MERGER and ACQUISITION

Talking about merger there are three types of merger-
  1. Horizontal merger:- In this type of merger the two companies are of the same business area.
  2. Vertical merger:-In this type of merger the two companies involved in different stages of creation of the same product.
  3. Conglomerate merger:-In this type of merger the two companies are of the different area business area.
