M&A Most Commonly Used Software / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Sumeet_Manhas

Generally, M&A activities involve the transfer or consolidation of a company's ownership, other business organization, or one of its operating units. 

Strategic management consists of many components, among them M&A, which allow an enterprise to expand or contract and change its nature and value proposition. 

Mergers and Acquisitions are a part of strategic management, allowing for expanding businesses into new markets, the expansion of services, the exploitation of synchronizations, the reduction of costs, the increase in financial leverage, or the simplifying of operational procedures.

During an acquisition, a company or business may be purchased by another or other entities.

The Whole Foods And Amazon Merger Is A Sign Of The Major Trend Every Investor Should Be Aware Of / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : If you are a shareholder in either Amazon (AMZN) or Whole Foods Market (WFM), their combination ought to please you.

Business Mergers Soar in 2015 / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: BATR

What does a CEO do when the economy is in a persistent down turn and your business cannot expand or grow? Jump at the time tested strategy of acquisition to gain market share seems to be the response in 2015. Yet a merger is no sure thing. Anyone remember AOL’s deal to buy Time Warner. How did that turn out? Just how much additional efficiency can be squeezed out of any company? In the era of part time contract workers and low wages, all the fat has been long gone. As for research and development in new technology or products, how will such innovation be marketed in an economy infatuated with the promise of Amazon Prime drone deliveries?

WhatsApp and the Wild, Weird, Wacky World of Investing / Commodities / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

Recently, in a conversation with another investor, I referred to a company’s management as being “extremely honest.” I was corrected, that honesty is binary and cannot be described with an adjective — a person is either honest or not.

The same applies to the word insane — you cannot be insane a little. Insane is, however, the word I would use to describe the valuation that Facebook paid for WhatsApp. You see, beyond a certain point at which the boundaries of reason have been thoroughly breached, quantifying the valuation paid for WhatsApp is like putting an adjective in front of infinity.

WhatsApp With Facebook? / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Peter_Schiff

Two pieces of business news announced this week provide a convenient frame through which to view our dysfunctional and distorted economy. The first (which has attracted tremendous attention), is Facebook's blockbuster $19 billion acquisition of instant messaging provider WhatsApp. The second (which few have noticed) is the horrific earnings report issued by Texas-based retail chain Conn's. While these two developments don't seem to have much in common, together they shed some very unflattering light on where we stand economically.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: The proposed mega-merger of Glencore International PLC and Xstrata PLC will create a global powerhouse with the potential to shake up the mining industry overnight.

If completed, the $90 billion deal will form a mining behemoth with control over one-third of the global market for thermal coal, and make it the world's largest producer of integrated zinc production. It will also rank as the world's third-largest copper producer and fourth-largest nickel producer.

More Mega-Deals to Come as M&A Activity Returns to Pre-Crisis Levels / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: A flurry of early-year deal making has helped drive global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity to its highest level since before the financial crisis. And the M&A market still hasn't hit full stride.

Cash rich companies and greater confidence in the overall economy are two big reasons for the turnaround. But international, cross-border deals have offered another catalyst for the spectacular growth.

Biotech Stocks Will be Fueled by Takeovers in 2011 / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: While a number of companies are on the verge of hitting the market with exciting new drug products or medical treatments, the biggest 2011 profits for investors in the biotech stocks are more likely to come from mergers and acquisitions (M&A) than research and development (R&D).

That's because mergers and buyouts in the industry have far outpaced the sector's overall growth rate, which in recent years has been sluggish. Indeed, IMS Health, a leading research and analytical firm serving the pharmaceutical and medical industries, projects only a slight increase in worldwide growth in 2011 - 5% to 7% versus a pace of 4% to 5% this year - with a similarly restrained outlook stretching out to 2015.

M&A Set to Accelerate in 2011 After a Late November Surge / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: A flurry of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in late November could presage the biggest surge in deals since the economy tanked three years ago.

In just the last week, nearly $25 billion in M&A deals were announced. BP PLC's (NYSE ADR: BP) sale of its majority stake in Pan American Energy, which went for $7.1 billion, was at the top of the list. With that sale, BP will have secured about $21 billion of the $30 billion it hoped to raise from asset sales to help cover damages from its oil spill disaster.

By: Money_Morning
