Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) is the name given to the business activity of buying and selling companies and parts of companies. M&A departments in companies handle strategy, corporate finance, and management, to buy, sell and combine businesses which can aid, finance, or help a company to grow. Growth without M&A is called ‘organic growth’.
