Business mergers, as defined by the Britannica Encyclopedia, is when a corporate combination of two or more independent business corporations into a single enterprise, usually the absorption of one or more firms by a dominant one. A merger may be accomplished by one firm purchasing the other’s assets with cash or its securities or by purchasing the other’s shares in the acquired firm. This thus, results in the company acquiring the other company’s assets and liabilities.
There are various types of business mergers. There are vertical forward integration, vertical backward integration, lateral integration and conglomerate. For example, when a sugar factory merges with a supermarket such as TESCO, it is considered a vertical forward integration because it is merging with a tertiary sector while a sugar factory is a secondary business sector – it processes raw materials and sends them off to a retail or wholesaler for goods to be sold. However, when the sugar factory merges with suppliers such as sugarcane factory, it is considered a vertical backward integration because the sugarcane factory is a primary business sector.
Also, if RHB – an Investment bank merges with Commercial banks like HSBC bank or CitiGroup etc, it is considered a conglomerate as commercial banks cater to only individual clients whereas investment banks are financial institutions that assists individuals, corporations and governments in raising capital by underwriting and/or acting as the client's agent in the issuance of securities. Merging these two banks would result in a Universal Bank which participates in many kinds of banking activities.
However, when RHB Investment Bank merges with OSK Investment bank, it is under lateral integration. This is because both RHB & OSK are both at the same level - Investment Banks and are at the same field – Business and this is what I will be talking…...

Taxation of Cross Borders Mergers & Acquisitions: Vodafone Hutch Deal

...Any mergers and acquisitions activity is intricate in its dimensions and would be affected by a plethora of laws and regulations depending on the stakeholders involved. Deal structuring from a tax perspective is one of the critical factors for any business restructuring proposition, such that the transaction is tax neutral or results in minimizing the tax implications. Such acquisitions may be routed through direct investments or through an International Holding Company (IHC). An IHC would be advantageous in case the promoter/company wishes to keep the cash flows generated from overseas operations outside India for future growth needs. In case of direct investments, the entire surplus amount would have to be repatriated to India and the same would be subject to tax in India, thereby reducing the disposable income in the hands of the promoter/company. Income generated overseas could be repatriated to the Indian Company in the form of interest, royalties, service or management fees, dividends, capital gains. Such income when repatriated to the Indian Company by the IHC or to the IHC by the target company would attract double taxation. Double taxation is a situation in which two or more taxes are paid for the same income/transaction which arises because of the overlap between different countries tax laws and jurisdictions. The liability is then mitigated or off settled by tax treaties between the two countries. An ideal location for an IHC would be one with......

...Mergers And Acquisitions: Shareholder Wealth Effects Mergers and acquisition otherwise identified as M& A defines an aspect of corporate management strategy, as well as corporate finance that deal with the selling, the buying and dividing of the various companies. It also involves combining the various companies and similarly oriented identities which could assist a given enterprise to grow rapidly within its sector of origin, or even a new field or location even without necessarily creating some subsidiary or joint type of a venture. The actual distinction which exists between a merger and an acquisition has been seen to become increasingly blurred in several aspects. This has been seen to be significant particularly in terms some ultimate economic outcome. Acquisition normally refers to the process of significantly smaller firms by a significantly large firm. However, it is notable that in some instances, a smaller firm could acquire some management control of a significantly larger firm or even a longer established firm in an effort to retain the real name of the latter for some past acquisition entity through combined efforts. This normally results into a reverse takeover and affects all the shareholders who are involved within the two firms. According to research study done by Ang and Kohers across the US territory, a reverse merger could also affect the shareholders in significant ways. This is because the merger enables a given private company to become......

...Dating from October 1993 to July 1998. American Airlines did identify and correct the violations promptly. The merger of American Airlines and US Airways Group was expected to close in the third quarter of 2013; this would give bondholder of American Airlines Parent AMR 72% of the new company and US Airways Shareholders the remaining 28%. The Airlines would carry the American Airlines name and the headquarters will be consolidated at American’s current headquarter in Texas. This merger will create the world’s largest airline, and along with United and Delta would control three-quarters of the U.S. market. Sean Lane, bankruptcy judge disapproved the 20 million merger stating it as inappropriate. Antitrust lawyer Joseph Alioto brought suit against American representing 33 passengers and travel agents who all claim the merger would render the Airlines too large and would give fewer flights and poor quality service. American Airlines says the lawsuit is “baseless”. August 13, 2013 the United States Department of Justice and attorney general from six states along with the District of Columbia filed a suit to block the merger, the argument being that the merger would mean less competition and higher prices. Both American Airlines and US Airways say they will fight the lawsuit and move forward with the merger once they have the regulatory approval. If this merger moves forward, consumers lose the benefit of head-to-head competition between US Airways and American on......

...Sandeep K Krishnan In an ideal merger, the newly created entity pools the best features of the two merging organizations. A well planned process built on the foundations of an open, honest and consistent communication strategy can pave the way. Mergers and acquisitions have become a common phenomenon in recent times. A merger of the size like HP-Compaq has implications for the workforce of these companies across the globe. Although the merging entities give a great deal of importance to financial matters and the outcomes, HR issues are the most neglected ones. Ironically studies show that most of the mergers fail to bring out the desired outcomes due to people related issues. The uncertainty brought out by poorly managed HR issues in mergers and acquisitions have been the major reason for these failures. The human resource issues in the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) can be classified in two phases the pre-merger phase and the post merger phase. Literature provides ample evidence of difference in between the human resource activities in the two stages: the pre-acquisition and post acquisition period. Due diligence is important in the first phase while integration issues take the front seat in the later. The pre acquisition period involves an assessment of the cultural and organizational differences, which will include the organizational cultures, role of leaders in the organization, life cycle of the organization, and the management styles. The mergers often prove to be......

Merger

...Then authors mention that mergers are still influenced by other national institutions. To begin with, they illustrate the factors such as nation’s legal origin, currency exchange rate and gross domestic product (GDP). Seung Hee Choi & Bang Nam Jeon (2011) found that GDP shows the largest contribution in the merger deal frequency model. When a country is just at the high speed development of economy period, with the increase of GDP, companies will have a better environment to carry on the merger activities. Secondly, authors stress that economic environment will have a significant impact on the acquisition activity. For example, countries who have signed a bilateral investment treaty or a double-taxation treaty would have a different performance according to the data collected by authors.  Huizinga and Voget(2009)state that impose high levels of international double taxation are less likely to attract the parent companies of newly created multinational firms. On the contrary, some preferential policies like tax sparing will motivate the merger activities between nations. Last but not least, authors state that religion, geographic distance and language are vital cultural institutions which have a strong effect on economic results. For example, Piekkari, Vaara, Tienari and Säntti(2005) study that compared to domestic mergers, cross-border deals introduce extra layers of difficulty. Language and communication challenges are intertwined with cultural differences. Under the......

The main issue discussed in this case study was the idea of merger between FVC and RSE could bring profit to both of the firms.

...Individual research objective Recently, there has been a lot of news about companies’ combination deals. Especially, in the telecommunication sector, mergers are the trend of the moment. M&A deals grab headlines, but what does this all mean to investors? This individual research tries to figure out the effects of mergers and acquisitions and what happens to the stock price when a company is bought out. Definition The terms of merger and acquisition mean slightly different things. Merger When two firms, often of about the same size, agree to go forward as a single new company rather than remain separately owned and operated, mergers happen. Usually mergers occur in a friendly setting where executives from the respective companies participate in and try to ensure a successful combination of all parts. Mergers are often financed by an all stock deal (a stock swap). An all stock deal occurs when all of the owners of the outstanding stock of either company get the same amount (in value) of stock in the new combined company. Acquisition When one company takes over another and clearly established itself as the new owner, the purchase is called an acquisition. Unlike mergers, acquisitions happen through a hostile takeover by purchasing the majority of outstanding shares of a company in the open market. Acquisitions can be carried out in a number of ways, including exchanging cash, stock, debt, or combinations thereof. In an acquisition, shares of the acquiring company......
