From the Publisher
This trailblazing book re-examines the value restructurings offer in building a new generation of companies with the power and resources to compete on a global basis. Pragmatic and comprehensive, it focuses on all the types of corporate restructurings available today such as M&As, divestitures, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, and recapitalizations. The author uses the latest research and case studies in the field to analyze and explain not only the financial aspects of these transactions but the economic, legal, tax, and regulatory considerations as well.
