Mergers & Acquisitions
The terms mergers and acquisitions are often used interchangeably.
When one company takes over another and establishes itself as the new owner, the purchase is called an acquisition.
On the other hand, a merger describes two firms, of approximately the same size, that join forces to move forward as a single new entity, rather than remain separately owned and operated. A purchase deal will also be called a merger when both CEOs agree that joining together is in the best interest of both of their companies.
