9780123854858: Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities

Two strengths distinguish this textbook from others. One is its presentation of subjects in the contexts where they occur. Students see different perspectives on subjects and learn how complex and dynamic the mergers and acquisitions environment is. The other is its use of current events. Of its 72 case studies, 3/4 are new or have been updated. The implications of Dodd-Frank and US Supreme Court rulings affecting the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, among other regulatory changes, are developed to enhance teaching and learning experiences. Other improvements to the 6th edition have shortened and simplified chapters, increased the numbers and types of pedagogical supplements, and expanded the international appeal of examples. With a renewed focus on empirical and quantitative examples, the 6th edition continues to demonstrate how people work together on mergers and acquisitions and why the actions of specific individuals have far-reaching implications. It presents an integrated approach to the activities involved in mergers, acquisitions, business alliances, and corporate restructurings. All chapters have been revised, updated, and contain new content, and 14 include more extensive changes. Structural revisions make chapters more streamlined, shorter, and less complex. Case studies cover a dozen industries, and 75 per cent are new or have been updated. All include discussion questions and answers.

Review:

"Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities, 6th ed. delivers an essential understanding of the corporate restructuring processes by combining insights from many case studies with academic rigor. The book points out how M&A can create value as well as the ways it can lead to value destruction. In addition to the state of the art valuation techniques, it also explains the regulatory corporate governance framework for both the US and Europe. It's an excellent text, and I highly recommend it." - Luc Renneboog, Professor of Corporate Finance, CentER, Tilburg University "Great text book that in a simple and straightforward manner combines the latest insights from academia with contemporary industry practices. It fits perfect in a class of MBA students or executives. I will for sure use it next time I teach M&A." -Karin Thorburn, DnB Nor Professor of Finance, Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration "DePamphilis has masterfully covered in one book all relevant managerial, strategic, financial, accounting, legal and tax aspects of M&A into an easily understood roadmap for any M&A transaction, large or small. With totally up-to-date material, he provides the crucial information that is necessary in today's rapidly changing M&A world." -Lloyd Levitin, Professor of Clinical Finance and Business Economics, University of Southern California "Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities is quite simply an outstanding text. Don DePamphilis delivers a comprehensive guide to the M&A process from start to finish. The reader is exposed to the latest thoughts on valuation methods as well as the myriad of alternative corporate asset restructuring decisions available to today's managers and how to best evaluate each. The book is punctuated with numerous up-to-date case examples as well as case study problems for analysis, giving the reader an immediate connection between the textual discussion and what we observe in practice. I have no doubt the book's content will appeal to a wide audience including students, instructors and practitioners. I particularly like the chapters on valuation methods and the fact that the text is accompanied by excellent Excel spreadsheet models for executing a complete analysis. In sum, Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities is a comprehensive, up-to-date, outstanding text." -Scott C. Linn, R.W. Moore Chair in Finance and Economic Development, the University of Oklahoma "After teaching M&A for ten years, I was relieved when last semester I finally switched to DePamphilis' text. His single book replaced numerous other sources that I had to use before. DePamphilis' academic rigor is combined with his deep personal experience as a deal maker, and thus the textbook is highly valuable to both newcomers and those being involved in transactions for many years." -Viktoria Dalko, Global Professor of Finance, Harvard University Extension School
