Mergers & Acquisitions

What are Mergers & Acquisitions?

The merger of commercial companies takes place in the form of merging of more than one company under the roof of one of them without liquidating their assets, or the merger of companies to be merged into a newly established company. In case a corporation takes over another corporation or more than one corporations, the merger takes place in the form of an acquisition.

The Importance of Mergers & Acquisitions

The importance that corporations attach to mergers and acquisitions processes in order to achieve their commercial goals is increasing day by day. The main reason why corporations prefer the merger and acquisition process is the desire of corporations to increase their profitability and efficiency.

Company mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, joint ventures and reorganizations are essential parts of the economy and commercial life.
