<p>Mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring transactions reveal the inner workings of our economy. Every student and professional should understand their parts, what they are intended to accomplish, and what their competitive, strategic, and value consequences are. In the 8th Edition of <i>Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities</i>, Donald DePamphilis looks into the heart of current economic trends. More than 90% of the nearly 40 case studies are new and involve transactions that have been announced or completed in the last three years. These cases represent friendly, hostile, highly leveraged, and cross-border deals in ten different industries, involving public and private firms as well as firms experiencing financial distress. All end –of-chapter case studies begin with a “Key Objectives” section indicating what the student should learn from the case study and include discussion questions and solutions available in the online instructors’ manual. This substantially updated content offers the only comprehensive exploration of today’s business transactions.</p><br><br><ul><li>Includes two new chapters. Chapter 9 discusses the basics of applying financial modeling methods to firm valuation and assists the reader in understanding the power (and limitations) of models in analyzing real world situation. Chapter 14 illustrates how complex financial models often are used to support the deal structuring process during M&A negotiations.</li><li>Teaches about the financial, legal, accounting, and strategic elements of mergers and acquisitions by concentrating on the ways their agents interact. </li><li>Highlights international mergers & acquisitions activities.</li><li>Focuses on the most recent and relevant academic studies, some of which contain surprising insights changing the way we view this subject matter. While continuing to be relevant, empirical research covering the dynamics of the M&A markets of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s may be less germane in explaining current undercurrents and future trends.</li><li>Features practical exhibits, case studies involving a diverse range of transactions, easy-to-understand numerical examples, and hundreds of discussion questions and practical exercises.</li> </ul>
