Mergers, acquisitions, and restructurings make up a huge portion of the financial sector. Most new professionals have only an understanding of their “slice” of the M&A pie and are ignorant about the big picture and the processes and strategies employed. With experts projecting a recovery in the U.S. economy by early 2010, interest in M&A activity is likely to surge. The resulting increase in hiring on Wall Street and elsewhere will be perfect timing for these books to meet the increased demand in the professional market for quick read background books. These are targeted toward new entrants to M&A worlds, hedge funds, and other finance companies where M&A has huge impact on their work.
The books are paperback, with lots of charts and figures, short illustrations from current events set aside in boxes, illustrating the main points in the book. A bibliography will point readers wanting more in-depth information to appropriate sources. Each chapter will end with a real-life business case involving companies and/or events from the news that illustrates the principles in that chapter.

  • Describes a broad view of the mergers and acquisition process to illustrate agents' interactions
  • Simplifies without overgeneralizing
  • Bases conclusions on empirical evidence, not experience and opinion
  • Features a recent business case at the end of each chapter
