It will examine the accounting and valuation aspects of M&A activities, discuss the alternative theories of M&A and review the relevant empirical tests. M&A activity is evaluated in terms of the strategic alternatives faced by the firm. Restructuring, leveraged buyouts, share repurchases and takeover defenses, etc. are also studied not only from a finance perspective but also from a strategic perspective. Cases are used and a term paper is required.
