This casebook embodies the conviction that theoretical and practical legal education are complementary and no more so than in the setting of M&A transactions, where corporate lawyers are regularly called upon to draw on their substantive knowledge of the law to advise clients on how best to effectuate their business objectives. Accordingly, this book retains the most significant judicial decisions in M&A jurisprudence while also making heavy use of textual explication, sample documentary provisions, and the latest teaching methods to deepen students' understanding of the relevant case law and prepare them for practice. The authors employ three principal pedagogical methods: Questions help students focus on information in the cases that is most relevant to the principles underlying specific topic areas. Problems hone students' abilities to interpret and apply the material to novel situations similar to those they might be asked to analyze in practice. Skills exercises provide time-efficient transactional skills training to students in the context of M&A. Additionally, this title is accompanied by online self-assessment quizzes, tied to the text, that help you gauge your understanding of the material.

Strategic management is now more relevant than ever. We are living in a fast paced world. The enormous advances in the field of communication through Internet and mobile devices have made sure that we are constantly and almost always available everywhere - also for business affairs. The increased degree of mobility ensures that managers can make appointments in Boston, Shanghai and Berlin in the same week. This increase in busyness, of course, has long since been transferred to companies. What is good today and generates high sales may be out again tomorrow and bring a business to the edge of disaster. At such times, responsible leadership is important. For companies, this means that clear visions and strategies must be developed to ensure sustained success on rapidly changing markets. The Internet is full of literature on strategic management. However, one rarely finds the information available very useful for the daily management. It is either too high-level (that often happens when one simply puts some terms and phrases into an online search engine and follows the first results) or much too detailed (why should someone read a 200 pages chapter on one specific topic when one already knows in the beginning that 80% of what is written is of no use at all). That was the birth of this book. The author wanted to write a book that can be used on a daily basis. Every time one thinks about a new problem and is looking for a suitable solution, this book should provide guidance in applying the right principles, thinking into the right direction and not thinking in the wrong direction at all (which is of equal importance). This is quite a burden for a small book like that, but it is a try at least. This book is not meant to be a bible for strategic management. How can one book claim to be that? It also lays no claim to being exhaustive. Rather, it is to be regarded as a collection of the most important tools that every manager should know.

A wave of corporate mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, and similar transactions has created unprecedented opportunities for those versed in contemporary risk arbitrage techniques. At the same time, the nature of the merger wave has lent such transactions a much higher degree of predictability than ever before, making risk arbitrage more attractive to investors. Surprisingly, there is little transparency and instruction for investors interested in learning the latest risk arbitrage techniques. Merger Arbitrage – A Fundamental Approach to Event-Driven Investing helps readers understand the inner workings of the strategy and hedge funds which engaged in this investment strategy. Merger arbitrage is one of the most commonly used strategies but paradoxically one of the least known. This book puts it in the spotlight and explains how fund managers are able to benefit from mergers and acquisitions. It describes how to implement this strategy, located at the crossroad of corporate finance and asset management, and where its risks lie through numerous topical examples. The book is split into three parts. The first part, examining the basis of merger arbitrage, looks at the key role of the market in takeover bids. It also assesses the major changes in the financial markets over recent years and their impact on M&A. Various M&A risk and return factors are also discussed, alongside the historical profitability of merger arbitrage, the different approaches used by fund managers and the results of academic studies on the subject. The second part of the book deals with the risk of an M&A transaction failing in terms of financing risk, competition issues, the legal aspects of merger agreements and administrative and political risks. The third part of the book examines specificities of M&A transactions, comprehensively covering hostile takeovers and leveraged buyouts. Each part contains many recent examples and case studies in order to show how the various theories and notions are put into practice. From researching prospects and determining positions, to hedging and trading tactics, Lionel Melka and Amit Shabi present the full complement of sophisticated risk arbitrage techniques, making Merger Arbitrage a must read for finance and investment professionals who want to take advantage of the nearly limitless opportunities afforded by today's rapidly changing global business environment. The book builds on its authors’ diverse backgrounds and common experience managing a merger arbitrage fund, providing readers with an enriching inside view on M&A operations.
