Mergers and acquisitions : a guide to creating value for stakeholders by Michael A Hitt( Book )

19 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1999, MCI WorldCom and Sprint agreed to merge. Valued at $129 billion, this expected transaction was the largest in history. However, it fell victim to regulators in Europe concerned with the potential monopoly power of the merged firm. This M & A action was merely the latest in a growing trend of "blockbuster" mergers over the past several years. Once a phenomenon seen primarily in the United States, mergers and acquisitions are increasingly being pursued across national boundaries. In short, acquisition strategies are among the most important corporate-level strategies in the new millennium. The need for a clear, complete, and up-to-date guide to successful mergers and acquisitions has never been greater." "This book more than fills that need. Looking at successful - and unsuccessful - mergers and acquisitions in a number of different industries, Mergers and Acquisitions: A Guide to Creating Value for Stakeholders explains how to conduct an acquisition and how to avoid pitfalls that have doomed many such ventures. The authors take the reader step-by-step through the process, starting with the elements of a successful merger, due diligence to ensure that the target firm is sound and fits well with the acquiring firm, and how mergers and acquisitions are financed. They move on to explore how firms find partners/targets for acquisitions that have complementary resources and how to find partners with which integration and synergy can be achieved. Finally, they discuss the potential hazards found in M & A's and how to avoid them, how to conduct successful cross-border acquisitions, and how to ensure that ethical principles aren't breached during the process."--Jacket

28 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes the concept of strategic entrepreneurship, which fuses the insights of entrepreneurship and strategic management. The editors believe that in the competitive landscape of the 21st century, those who wish to succeed will have to combine opportunity-seeking and advantage-seeking behaviours. To illustrate this mindset, they have invited entrepreneurship and strategic management scholars to contribute chapters on key issues that are influencing research in both fields, and to integrate findings across the two. The collection investigates the overlap between entrepreneurship and strategic management in the context of six distinct domains: resources and organizational learning; innovation; alliances and networks; internationalization; strategic leadership; and growth. Within this framework, the contributors use both traditional and contemporary theoretical approaches in try to further the reader's understanding of wealth creation in the current business environment

18 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research-based investigations of creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship have the potential to inform each other and enrich our knowledge of each of these areas, particularly with regard to cognitive processes and effective behaviors. Yet, while these research streams have increasingly received a great deal of attention, they have developed largely independently of one another. The Oxford Handbook of Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship addresses the critical need to integrate these three interrelated literatures. The handbook features contributions from the leading scholars in these research areas. As a group, the chapters examine the intersections of these topics to synthesize contemporary research and provide direction and stimulation for further interdisciplinary investigations of organizational creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship
