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.

Featured Excerpt from the Preface of the Sixth Edition of Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities
Mergers, acquisitions, business alliances, and corporate restructuring activities are increasingly commonplace in both developed and emerging countries. Given the frequency with which such activities occur, it is critical for businesspeople and officials at all levels of government to have a basic understanding of why and how such activities take place. The objective of Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities is to bring clarity to what can be an exciting, complex, and sometimes frustrating subject. It is intended to help the reader think of the activities involved in mergers, acquisitions, business alliances, and corporate restructuring in an integrated way.
While all of the chapters in the book contain new content and have been revised and updated, 14 of them have undergone pervasive changes. Many of the finer details in each chapter have been moved to footnotes, resulting in a more streamlined, shorter, and less complex text. The chapters contain the latest academic research, with increased focus on recent empirical findings. Additional numerical examples have been included in more chapters to illustrate the application of important concepts.
About one-fourth of the book is devoted to business valuation and financial modeling. Chapters 7 and 8 are totally focused on commonly used alternative valuation methods. Chapter 9 addresses important modeling issues not covered in prior editions.
Chapters 10, 13, 16, and 17 deal with specialized valuation applications, including valuation of private firms, leveraged buyouts, distressed companies, and cross-border transactions. These chapters describe in detail the context in which these specialized situations occur.
