Descripción del producto
"The DePamphilis text is an excellent textbook that provides a full end-to-end view of the process with the appropriate level of detail. I have reviewed many M&A texts, and this text provides an excellent process view rather than just a series of topics." --Stephen G Morrissette, University of Chicago
Reseña del editor
Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities is unique in that it is the most current, comprehensive, and cutting-edge text on M&A and corporate restructuring available. It is current in that it includes many of the most up-to-date and notable deals (e.g., Facebook’s takeover of WhatsApp, the Dell privatization, and Verizon’s mega buyout of Vodafone’s share of Verizon Wireless), precedent setting judicial decisions (e.g., efforts to overturn defenses at Airgas and Sotheby’s), new regulations (e.g., expediting backend mergers), trends (e.g., increasing role of activist investors in takeovers), and new tactics (e.g., two-tiered poison pill) employed in M&As. Most integrative case studies are new for this edition and involve transactions that have been announced or completed since 2013. It is comprehensive in that nearly all aspects of M&As and corporate restructuring are explored. It is cutting edge in that conclusions and insights are anchored by the most recent academic research, with references to more than 200 empirical studies published in leading peer-reviewed journals just since 2012. And the substantially updated content is illustrated with numerous practical exhibits, case studies involving diverse transactions, easy-to-understand numerical examples, and hundreds of discussion questions and practice exercises.
The highlights of the new edition are listed here:
· New Chapters: Two new chapters: Chapter 9 and 14. 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.
· New Cases: Ninety percent of the nearly forty case studies are new and involve transactions announced or completed during 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.
· Latest Research: This edition focuses on the most recent and relevant academic studies, some of which contain surprising insights changing the way we view this subject matter. Recent research has significant implications for academicians, students, M&A practitioners, and government policy makers shedding new light on current developments and trends in the ever-changing mergers and acquisitions market. The market for corporate control and corporate restructuring strategies are constantly changing, reflecting the ongoing globalization of both product and capital markets, accelerating technological change, escalating industry consolidation, changing regulatory practices, and intensifying cross-border competition. 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.
- Includes two new chapters.

Chapter 14 illustrates how complex financial models often are used to support the deal structuring process during M&A negotiations.

My review is intended to warn potential buyers of a couple of flaws in the electronic versions (Kindle for Mac and Kindle for iPhone). They are not fatal flaws, but they do detract a little from the reading experience.
Problem #1. Being a finance textbook, it includes finance equations. On both the Mac and the iPhone, you must use the View Options tool to set the background to Black in order to read the formulas. If you set the background to Sepia or White, those equations render so poorly on screen, that they become unreadable. They look like a low-resolution scan of a scan of scan. Broken, incomplete, moth-eaten. Timeworn, like something out of an ancient manuscript.
In the Mac version, they are not separate images, so they can't be enlarged. In the iPhone version, enlargement is possible and actually exposes the underlying cause of the problem: the Kindle software superimposes a layer of lighter-color text on top of the equations' native black type, thereby making the final result so hard to interpret. I find myself needing to constantly toggle background colors between Sepia (easier on the eyes for general reading) and Black (to read formulas).
To the editor: please either remove the added text layer, or convert the equations to type, in the same font as the remainder of the textbook.
Problem #2. In the iPhone version, touching the footnote hyperlinks only seems to work in one direction: forward. In other words, touching a numbered footnote embedded in the text works as expected (it take the reader to the linked footnote at the end of the chapter), but when the reader attempts to reverse direction and go back to the original reading point, it doesn't work -- the Kindle software merely moves a single page backward.
Perhaps this problem is due to the fact that footnote text is left-aligned, instead of being indented. Since the footnote hyperlinks are so close to the left edge of the phone screen, it seems logical the the software would be unable to tell that the reader's finger is trying to touch a hyperlink, not trying to go back one page.
To the editor: please try indenting footnote text to see whether this fixes the problem.
