Context and Requirement Context

This assignment draws upon topics covered in Theme 5 of the programme. In the current financial environment Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) activity is high and conglomerate as well as cross-border (international) mergers are common. In any M&A activity it is imperative that the management of the acquiring firm persuade the shareholders of the target firm that their offer is best and will enhance value in the longer run. It is generally believed that shareholders in the target company gain more in the short and medium terms compared to shareholders in the acquiring company.
