Making Mergers and Acquisitions Work: From Strategy and Target Selection to Post Merger Integration
For many industries, mergers and acquisitions have become the main pathway for reaching strategic objectives like growth, technological leadership, or efficiency in production and distribution. However, the success rate of most M&A deals is low - and flawed. Unrealistic synergies, wrong target selection, culture clashes and, most of all, weak post-merger integration processes pose huge challenges, and this book addresses the salient question of how to make M&A deals work. The authors offer readers unique access to each stage of the M&A process, with added depth and perspective provided by Prysmian - the global leader in energy and telecom cables. Prysmian's perspective enables the authors to deliver a manual for successful M&A in mature industries that require high levels of integration between operating companies. This collection of existing M&A experiences that identify clear action steps will be an essential tool for managers to develop their growth strategies and accelerate their post-merger integration processes. This guide will also prove useful for practitioners and academics as they seek to improve the ability of firms to conduct M&A, through dissemination in academic and executive classrooms.

Cross-Border Mergers and Acquisitions: UK Dimensions
Cross-border mergers and acquisitions (CBM&As) activity has become an important vehicle for firms' internationalization and corporate restructuring over the past three decades. Despite the huge volume of global CBM&A activity, however, there are few books which carefully explore the strategies, motives, and consequences of global mergers and acquisitions. This book discusses and synthesizes the theoretical literature on the motivation and performance of international merger activities. Focusing on the UK as a top acquiring country in the European Union, the authors explore the recent trends in cross-border mergers and acquisitions, motives for cross-border mergers and acquisitions, the mergers integration process, home and host countries' macroeconomic consequences on mergers and acquisitions, and shareholder's wealth effects on CBM&A. This book explores and sheds much-needed light on the UK CBM&A market, what drives it, and what lessons can be learned for other regions around the globe.

The Globalisation of Indian Business: Cross Border Mergers and Acquisitions in Indian Manufacturing
There are a good number of studies in the Indian context, which have examined the general trends in post-merger performance. However, this is the first book to attempt an analysis of the aforementioned issues, (that is, impact on technological performance, production efficiency and market competition), in detail, using appropriate statistical and econometric techniques. The book takes a comparative perspective, involving domestic and cross-border deals. The author analyses the changing nature of foreign investment in the form of mergers and acquisitions vis-a-vis domestic deals, using a new database on mergers and acquisitions. More specifically, she provides an insight into whether the consolidation strategy adopted by firms has helped them to achieve their desired objectives in terms of improvement in technology, enhancement of efficiency and market power in the context of increasing mergers and acquisitions in India, especially since the 1990s. The book is of importance within the context of Competition Law, which aims to maintain competition and protect consumers' interests without harming that of the producers'. It analyses the role of cross-border mergers and acquisitions in changing the level of concentration and its policy implications and while it cautions the regulators to rethink the efficiency defense argument and become more vigilant on monopolies creation, it also suggests that firms should reconsider their post-merger integration strategy, since consolidation has not led to a sustainable increase in market shares of the surviving firms.

Valuation for M&A: Building and Measuring Private Company Value
Determine a company's value, what drives it, and how to enhance value during a M&A Valuation for M&A lays out the steps for measuring and managing value creation in non-publicly traded entities, and helps investors, executives, and their advisors determine the optimum strategy to enhance both market value and strategic value and maximize return on investment. As a starting point in planning for a transaction, it is helpful to compute fair market value, which represents a floor value for the seller since it by definition represents a value agreed upon by any hypothetical willing and able buyer and seller. But for M&A, it is more important to compute investment value, which is the value of the target company to a strategic buyer (and which can vary with each prospective buyer). Prepare for the sale and acquisition of a firm Identify, quantify, and qualify the synergies that increase value to strategic buyers Get access to new chapters on fairness opinions and professional service firms Find a discussion of Roger Grabowski's writings on cost of capital, cross-border M&A, private cost of capital, intangible capital, and asset vs. stock transactions Inside, all the necessary tools you need to build and measure private company value is just a page away!

M&A Disputes: A Professional Guide to Accounting Arbitrations
Navigate M&A accounting arbitrations with insider perspective M&A Disputes takes you inside the dispute resolution process to help you put together the many moving parts necessary to obtain a successful outcome. With deep insight from experts in the field including valuable advice from the arbitrator's perspective this book guides you through the entire process to explore the variables at work. The high volume of M&A transactions makes post-closing price adjustment provisions and accounting arbitrations a critical part of doing business. Yet, the field is opaque to non-practitioners and important issues can be easily misunderstood without specific knowledge and experience. A resulting award can make or break a transaction; an intimate understanding of the process's inner working can help you plan your position to the greatest advantage. This book explores the many factors that that contribute to a successful resolution across the entire transaction life cycle from contract negotiation through the dispute phase including due diligence, determination of the target net working capital, conception and closing of the purchase agreement, post-closing negotiation and dispute resolution, the impact of accounting practices, guidance, and documentation as well as relevant auditing concepts, and various facts and circumstances surrounding the target business and the transaction that need to be considered. M&A volume remains high and continues to result in large numbers of current and future post-closing M&A disputes. Clients rely on their attorneys and advisers to guide them through the process and counsel them toward a positive outcome. Those professionals will find that M&A accounting arbitrations carry a range of distinctions that require a specialized knowledge base to navigate correctly. This book provides real-world guidance from experts in the field, with invaluable insight for every stage of the process. Walk through the entire dispute resolution process from arbitrator selection through final awardUnderstand how M&A agreement provisions impact the awarded amount as well as the options available to limit the scope of potential disputes and the gaming of the post-closing process by the counterpartyUnderstand the nature of accounting estimates and guidance, their interaction with accounting arbitrations, and how to synthesize facts, circumstances, and GAAP into a persuasive argument to present to the accounting arbitratorGet situation-specific advice for different types of transactionsLearn practitioner dos and don'ts from the arbitrator's perspective M&A Disputes provides transaction parties and their representatives an inside view at the transaction and commonly disputed items through the eyes of the arbitrator to provide them with uniquely valuable insight. In addition to being an invaluable tool for practitioners appearing before an accounting arbitrator, M&A Disputes also provides advice to would-be and experienced arbitrators alike to successfully resolve disputes that can be significant and complex.

Until recently, McClelland and Stewart had been known as The Canadian Publisher, the country's longest-lived and best independent press. Its dynamic leader Jack McClelland worked with successive provincial and federal governments to help draft policies in the 1960s and 70s which ensured that Canadian stories would, for the first time in the nation's history, be told and published by Canadians. M&S introduced Canadians to themselves while championing the nation's literature, bringing to the world Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen, Mavis Gallant, Farley Mowat, Rohinton Mistry, Alice Munro, Mordecai Richler, and many others. When 75% of M&S was gifted amidst great fanfare to the University of Toronto on Canada Day 2000-- To achieve the survival of one great Canadian institution, M&S owner Avie Bennett declared at the time, I have given it into the care of another great Canadian institution --one could've assumed that it would remain in Canadian hands and under Canadian control in perpetuity. But one would have been wrong. In her controversial new book, Elaine Dewar reveals for the first time how M&S was sold salami-style to Random House, a division of German media giant Bertelsmann; how smart businessmen and even smarter lawyers danced through the raindrops of the laws put into place to protect Canadian cultural institutions from foreign ownership while cultural bureaucrats looked the other way; and why we should care. It is the story not just of the demise of the country's best independent publisher, it is about the threats, internal and otherwise, facing Canadian culture. The Handover is more than just a CanLit How-Done-It: it is essential reading for anyone interested in the telling of Canadian stories.

Material Adverse Change: Lessons from Failed M&As
Boost M&A outcomes with less risk by learning from mistakes of the past Material Adverse Change will help you close more successful mergers and acquisitions by analyzing the common root causes of deal failures from before the Great Recession to today. The time between signing and closing a deal is a particularly risky period where the buyer has committed to purchase the company, but the seller continues to operate it while waiting for regulatory approval or funding to close out the deal. A Material Adverse Change clause allows the buyer to back out of the transaction if certain adverse events occur during this period. By designing this safety net into the contract, you re free to take the time to examine records, meet with employees, and fully understand the legal issues at hand. If the target loses value during that time, in certain cases, you re free to walk away. This book explores the full power of the Material Adverse Change clause, and today s M&A in general. You ll dig into the real causes of M&A failure, and discover the traits and practices that lead to poor results as you learn how to avoid these common mistakes and drive more successful deals. Recent case studies highlight common mistakes made and propagated by otherwise intelligent people, so you can identify and eliminate these practices within your own organization. A large acquisition is already a delicate balancing act. Why complicate it with the exponential risk by not doing your homework? This book shows you how to apply best practices to increase your chances of successful deals and avoid potentially career ending mistakes. Explore the true root causes of M&A failures of the past Analyze the personality traits that drive suboptimal outcomes Implement new practices to avoid mistakes and close successful deals Learn why common-sense errors are repeated over and over again The M&A market has grown to become a major factor in the global economy, yet many buyers do less investigation than consumers making everyday purchases. Material Adverse Change shows you how to slash risk and improve your chances of completing better deals.

Why Deals Fail and How to Rescue Them: M&A lessons for business success
Mergers and acquisitions are part of the fabric of business and economic life: they help drive growth in companies of all sizes. Most executives will at some point in their careers experience a takeover, as buyer, seller or intermediary. Yet, despite M&A's obvious attractions, deals often fall short of expectations and, in extreme cases, can go disastrously wrong, with devastating consequences. From their unique perspective as practitioners and researchers, Faelten, Driessen and Moeller have seen it all when it comes to M&A, and they've used this experience to develop their Three Big Mistakes of Deal-Making. Using case studies from a wide range of companies, many household names (Diageo, BMW, Microsoft, Kraft, HP and even Manchester United), and for deals ranging from the highly to the less successful to the downright questionable, Why Deals Fail offers both a commentary on the inexorable tendency for companies to merge, for good or ill, and a guide to the benefits and pitfalls of M&A as a growth strategy. The result is a fascinating insight into why some deals work and why others go awry for anyone interested in how the corporate world works, or contemplating or facing a merger or acquisition themselves.

Barbarians at the Gate
The battle for the control of RJR Nabisco in the Autumn of 1988, which became the largest and most dramatic corporate takeover in American history, sent shock-waves through the international business world and became a symbol of the greed, excess and egotism of the eighties. Barbarians at the Gate recounts this two-month battle with breathtaking pace and flair, and transports back to the Wall Street empire before it crumbled, through the boardroom doors, into the midnight meetings, the betrayals, the deal makers and publicity flaks, into a world where - as Nabisco CEO Ross Johnson put it - 'a few million dollars are lost in the sands of time'. Twenty years on, the world is once again recovering from a period of financial extravagance and irresponsibility. This revised edition brings the ultimate business thriller up to date for a new generation of readers.

It provides a huge amount of information on the principles of coaching and mentoring and some really practical advice on how to apply these principles to improve performance at work. The new edition adds further superb insights and a more reflective dimension - together with concise answers to some frequently asked questions. My favourite coaching and mentoring book! Sue Covill, Coach and former Director of Human Resources With teams of teachers and school leaders The Skilled Helper Model has proved itself to be a robust and flexible tool for frameworking coaching conversations. I use it frequently both implicitly and explicitly with learners. The questions in the 2nd edition of Coaching and Mentoring at Work help explain the stages of the model to learners and provide invaluable prompts for leaders new to coaching. Hannah Jones, BlueKiteCoach Mary Connor and Julia Pokora clearly live by one of the central tenets of their new book - 'effective practice is reflective practice'. They have listened to feedback on the 1st edition and made some pivotal changes. The book has a new structure of four sections that give a cohesive, interlinking framework that works. They have reconfigured the core of the earlier book and augmented it with some new material. I really like the way they have incorporated their own voices into the narrative - there was a real sense of how their current practice has emerged from a range of influences and approaches and is still developing. There is an excellent new chapter on reflective practice and supervision that I anticipate I will be read and re-read many times. They have also brought clarity to me about the confusing world of coaching accreditation in another new chapter. Finally, the FAQ's in the final section are a distillation of pure wisdom. The new edition has exceeded all my expectations. Alan Swann, Consultant Old Age Psychiatrist/Clinical Director for Revalidation & CPD, Newcastle Older Peoples' Mental Health Services We use Coaching and Mentoring at Work as one of our core texts on training courses for the London Deanery Coaching and Mentoring Service. Clinicians and healthcare professionals learn a model and skills which they can use in their everyday leadership, teaching, supervising, clinical and management roles, as well as more formally as coaches and mentors. This book is comprehensive in its cover of how this can be achieved, with examples and wide coverage of contracting and preparation for a mentoring session. I like the definition of coaching and mentoring given in this book as 'learning relationships' which help clients to achieve outcomes that 'they want and value.' It is a paradigm and mindset shift for many doctors who have been taught the medical model which assumes the doctor is the all-knowing expert. In coaching and mentoring we learn to sit on our hands and assume that the mentee is resourceful and knows the answers better than us. I am pleased to see that the second edition has new sections on reflective practice, supervision and accreditation. These are all important in the development of quality coaching and mentoring. Dr Rebecca Viney, Lead, London Deanery Coaching and Mentoring Service The new edition of this popular, practical and authoritative book has been revised and updated throughout, with two new chapters. It features: Nine key principles of effective coaching and mentoring, showing how to apply them Broader and deeper discussion of approaches to coaching and mentoring Answers to frequently asked questions A new chapter on reflective practice, supervision and accreditation Ideas about how to be an effective coach or mentor and how to be an effective client Self development checklists and prompts, and a wealth of interactive case material The Skilled Helper model and how to apply it to coaching and mentoring A range of tried and tested tools and techniques The hot topics of ethical practice, training and developing a coaching culture Coaching and Mentoring at Work is aimed not only at coaches and mentors but also at the other half of the partnership, clients.

Directors' Liabilities and Indemnification: A Global Guide
Directors' liabilities have been a key concern in boardrooms since the various high-profile corporate failures in Europe and the United States over the past two decades, when regulation increased and shareholders' and companies' rights to bring civil claims were extended. The current financial crisis will inevitably bring with it greater risks and challenges for directors. There is an increasingly aggressive environment for civil claims, fuelled by insolvencies, shareholder pressure and public outcry. The attention of the regulators is also ever more sharply focused on directors' conduct. Directors are understandably looking closely at the protection available to them, through both indemnification and directors' and officers' insurance. The exposures faced by directors and the extent to which indemnification and insurance may provide protection vary significantly around the world. This comprehensive second edition features contributions by leading experts on the important aspects of directors' liability, the protection available to directors and the risks of doing businesses in multiple jurisdictions.New to the second edition are chapters on China, the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates. In addition to civil claims and indemnification, each chapter now includes commentary on regulatory and criminal liability. Particular focus is placed on the impact of the credit crisis. The book also features a new section dealing with regulatory issues surrounding global directors' and officers' programmes and their ability to provide cover in all intended jurisdictions. Unique in its approach, this new edition is a powerful tool in assisting directors, officers, in-house counsel and the private practice lawyers advising them to make well-informed judgements about the risks they are taking.
