More About Mergers & Acquisitions
Acquisitions involve what the name implies: taking over the majority stock in a company that you acquire. In this type of transaction, the two companies often do not change their names or structure. This type of transaction can be done through a cash purchase of the acquired company’s shares or through exchanging stock.
Mergers combine two companies through shareholder approval. Once it is acquired, the acquired company not longer exists but becomes part of the other. Mergers can be structured in various ways, such as horizontal mergers between two competitors, vertical mergers between a company and one of its suppliers or customers, or congenic mergers between two companies serving the same consumers in two different ways. Other mergers can occur between companies that sell the same products but in different areas or between two companies that sell different products that are somehow related in one area.
