DIFFERENT FORM OF MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS

 

  • Vertical mergers where two firms are in different stages of production of a product, e.g. a crude oil producer and an oil refining company

 

  • Horizontal mergers where two firms are in the same line of business

 

  • Conglomerate mergers where the firms are in unrelated line of business

 

  • Concentric mergers where the firms are involved in different but related line of business

 

  • Reverse take-over where the bigger firm acquires a smaller firm through share swaps and the smaller firm ends up controlling (taking over) the bigger company.
