Mergers and acquisition – often shortened M&A – cover consolidation of two or more firms and purchasing another companies throughout various types of financial transactions. Acquisition describes processes that includes taking over an entity by another company. In this case the target company ceases to exist, so the overtaking company absorbs the target business. In the case of merger two approximately equal entities join forces and establish a new entity. Acquisition and merger are two different terms with distinct legal consequence but both have more variations.
