M&As are complex undertakings with lots of moving parts and no end of tricky twists and turns at every stage of the process. This is why, no matter what your role in an M&A, it behooves you to learn as much as you can about their mechanics before entering into such arrangements—or you could come out of it with a lot less than you'd bargained for. Fortunately, Mergers and Acquisitions, Second Edition makes it easier than ever for you to quickly get up to speed on all the M&A basics.

From the initial engagement letter to the final acquisition agreement, Mergers and Acquisitions, Second Edition arms you with the knowledge and tools you need to successfully navigate the M&A process and come out of it with everything you bargain for.
Praise for Mergers and Acquisitions "Buyers and sellers both hope to be winners in an acquisition. But at the negotiating table, there is only one winner for each point and winning may mean a significant change in the deal economics. The insights in this book are crucial for both buyers and sellers and lay out the rationale for both sides of all of the money issues and other important deal points." —Todd Koopersmith, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development, Iron Mountain "This book will help M&A professionals get up to speed on a wide range of deal points. It explains the legal background and transaction structuring issues in M&A transactions that every investment professional must know." —Gregory Burkus, Founder and Partner, Shasta Partners "This book is an essential resource for businesspeople, and the lawyers and other professionals who advise them, to develop a real-world understanding of how the M&A process works. More importantly, it explains why specific deal structures, contractual terms, and diligence procedures are used." —Jonathan Wolfman, Partner, WilmerHale, Boston "As U.S. M&A concepts, documents, and practices become increasingly adopted internationally, this book will be an invaluable resource. It provides an excellent overview of the entire area, and is easily understandable by corporate executives and lawyers outside the United States." —Leo Specht, Founder, Specht Rechtsanwalts-Gesellschaft mbH, Vienna, Austria
