Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A)

M&A is an umbrella term used to describe various forms under which companies merge into single entities or where one company takes over another company (the latter can be on a friendly or hostile basis). Investment banks have M&A departments that specialise in advising companies on takeover or defence strategies.
