Mergers and acquisitions are a global business strategy that enables firms to enter into new potential markets or to a new business area. The main objective of every organization is to get maximum profit every year to increase the wealth of shareholders by giving them high dividends. Every organization adopts different techniques and tools to maximize its profit and can be able to survive in the fast growing market. There exists certain event for which every organization has to respond spontaneously in order to get maximum gains like entering into new markets, launching new products, increasing portfolio etc.
The decision to invest in a new asset would mean internal expansion for the firm. The new asset would generate returns raising the value of the corporation. Mergers offer an additional means of expansion, which is external, i.e. the productive operation is not within the corporation itself. For firms with limited investment opportunities, mergers can provide new areas for expansion. In addition to this benefit, the combination of two or more firms can offer several other advantages to each of the corporations such as operating economies, risk reduction and tax advantage.
