Both of the previous ‘disappear’ into the new organization. Shares in the previous entities are commuted into new stock, usually revalued to account for the new market value. • Acquisition: It is a joining of unequal partners. A large organization purchases all (or a controlling share interest ) in a smaller business and then subsumes it into its structure.
  • 8. Deepali Goel MBA (G) Difference In the pure sense of the term, a merger happens when two firms, often about the same size, agree to go forward as a new single company rather than remain separately owned and operated. This kind of action is more precisely referred to as a "merger of equals." Both companies' stocks are surrendered, and new company stock is issued in its place. For example, both Daimler-Benz and Chrysler ceased to exist when the two firms merged, and a new company, DaimlerChrysler, was created. •CHRYSLER WD AMC—acquisition •DAILMER N CHYRSLER---merger
  • 9. Deepali Goel MBA (G) • When a company takes over another one and clearly becomes the new owner, the purchase is called an acquisition.

The transaction is valued at approximately $57 billion (USD) making it the largest acquisition in P&G history • TISCO acquires Nat steel: Tata Iron and Steel Company Ltd (TISCO) has acquired Singapore-based steel company Nat steel ltd by subscribing to 100 per cent equity of its subsidiary Nat steel Asia PTE Ltd (Nat steel Asia). • SBC Acquires AT&T: SBC Communications Inc. has acquired AT&T Corp. in a $16 billion deal that would create the nation's largest communications company
  • 10. Deepali Goel MBA (G) Varieties of Acquisitions • Agreed Acquisition: It is where the directors of the target company accept that the offer for the shares are in the best interest of the share-holders and they accordingly recommend that shareholders accept the price offered . e.g -walls n Heinz….Colgate n Palmolive…hotmail n Microsoft • Hostile Acquisition: It is an attempt to acquire a controlling shareholding in a public limited company which is not recommended by the target company’s directors.
