SKU: 6a63a2ef9e93 Category:

During the last two decades or so, the global industrial landscape had been completely redrawn by the forces of globalization, deregulation and unprecedented technological development. Companies have responded to the competitive pressures unleashed by these forces through extensive repositioning programmes involving mergers, acquisitions, alliances, divestitures and demergers. Back home in India, most Indian companies and business groups would seem to have been caught unawareness initially by the momentous and rapid changes brought about by the economic reforms. However, after the tentativeness of the early years of reform, several of them would seem to have come to terms with the new realities of an intensively competitive domain and have been undertaking extensive restructuring both at the operational and at the strategic levels. In this scenario, it is important that the management students are to be fully alive to the complex issues associated with corporate restructuring based growth strategies so that they, in turn, are able to manage the problem in their professional career. In this context, this book, Corporate Restructuring: Merger, Acquisition and Other Forms, will make useful reading capturing the important concepts and texts of corporate restructuring along with highlighting some practical cases from India and abroad.

The book has been divided into four sections. The first section deals with the concepts and strategy for corporate restructuring. As M&As is the most popular and important form of corporate restructuring, the second section is exclusively devoted for its basics, procedure, issues and aspects, due diligence process, basics of target valuation and its different methods. In addition, this section includes the legal and regulatory framework, accounting aspect and risks management aspect of M&As in Indian context. While the third section of the book portrays other forms of corporate restructuring, viz: demergers, takeovers, strategic alliance, joint ventures, ESOPs and share buybacks; the last section interestingly deals with the most important aspect of these business dealings-the case studies on some of the world`s most remarkable restructuring cases in contemporary times, conspicuously: DaimlerChrysler, Citigroup-Travelerss, Takeover of Raasi Cements by India Cements, Bharti-Wal-Mart Retail, Strategic Alliance of Yahoo! and e-Bay, Tata-Tetley acquisition through LBO, ESOPs by Infosys Technologies Ltd., and Buyback of Siemens Ltd.
