  • Merger,
    Acquisition, and International Strategies

    Choose two (2) public corporations
    in an industry with which you are familiar – one (1) that has acquired another
    company and operates internationally and one (1) that does not have a history of
    mergers and acquisitions and operates solely within the U.S. Research each
    company on its own Website, the public filings on the Securities and Exchange
    Commission EDGAR database (, in the University’s online
    databases, and any other sources you can find. The annual report will often
    provide insights that can help address some of these questions.

    Write a six 6 page paper in which you:

    1. For the corporation that has acquired another company, merged with another
      company, or been acquired by another company, evaluate the strategy that led to
      the merger or acquisition to determine whether or not this merger or acquisition
      was a wise choice. Justify your opinion.
    2. For the corporation that has not been involved in any mergers or
      acquisitions, identify one (1) company that would be a profitable candidate for
      the corporation to acquire or merge with and explain why this company would be a
      profitable target. 
    3. For the corporation that operates internationally, briefly evaluate its
      international business-level strategy and international corporate-level strategy
      and make recommendations for improvement. 
    4. For the corporation that does not operate internationally, propose one
      business-level strategy and one corporate-level strategy that you would suggest
      the corporation consider. Justify your proposals.
    5. Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia
      and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.
