Course programme


Industrial maps across the world have been constantly redrawn over the years through various forms of corporate restructuring. The most common method of such restructuring is Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A). The term "mergers & acquisitions (M&As)" encompasses a widening range of activities, including join ventures, licensing, spinoffs, equity carveouts, tracking stocks, restructuring, alliances, and other corporate interactions such as network relationships. Industries facing excess capacity problems witness merger as means for consolidation. Industries with growth opportunities also experience M&A deals as growth strategies. There are stories of successes and failures in mergers and acquisitions. Such stories only confirm the popularity of this vehicle. The course is designed to impress upon the participants about the different facets of mergers and acquisitions, with a major emphasis on financial issues in M&A.
