What are Mergers and Acquisitions?

If you’re not familiar with the term, mergers and acquisitions, it’s okay! Here’s the lowdown of what we’re talking about. According to our friends at Investopedia, mergers and acquisitions is a “general term that describes the consolidation of companies or assets through various types of financial transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, consolidations, tender sales, purchase of assets, and management acquisitions.” Thanks, Investopedia.

To break it down even further, when a company buys another company completely outright, that’s considered an acquisition.

On the other hand, when two companies combine to form a new legal entity under one name, that’s considered a merger.
