After the high profile of the volatile 1980s, the mergers and acquisitions arena has returned to the basics. Extensively rewritten to reflect the conditions of today's economic climate, this edition provides corporate executives with advice on realizing successful acquisitions in the 1990s. It reveals realistic strategies and goals and provides the latest information on regulations that have altered the face of mergers and acquisitions. The edition includes a new chapter on restructuring financially troubled companies, explains the unique strategies that apply to the growing area of niche acquisitions and presents material on international mergers, cross-border alliances, and the pros and cons of partial buy-ins.
