For example, a resolution may be passed requiring 75% or even 80% of the votes in favor of takeover. Therefore, the acquirer company will fail to gain the majority with 51% of the majority limit. e) Restricted Voting Rights Under this strategy, equity ownership above some threshold level, i.e. 15% or 20%, results in a loss of voting rights unless approved by the board of directors. This strategy greatly reduces the effectiveness of the tender offer and forces the acquirer to deal with minority shareholders or deal with the board of directors directly.
Mergers and acquisitions are basically associated with the concept of buying, selling or combining different companies for the purpose of expansion and growth for the companies. As we all know there are two ways we can acquire a target- either by cash or by stock or a combination of both. Well, transfers of ownership by cash are very straight forward and clear for the two parties involved in this transaction. While payment using stock options will be given to the acquired company at a ratio equivalent to the amount they are being acquired
Unfortunately to build the value chain we would need a more thorough investigation on the TJ’s processes and arrangements. In my opinion to make the proper investigation of the resources gaps and missed capabilities it is required to be very familiar with the company’s organizational aspects and business process. But due to the fact the company does not publish any investor reports and is has never gone public (Stock Exchange or Private equity funding). In my opinion the Porter’s tool such as Value chain analysis in this case has disadvantages comparing to Grant’s simple approach to resource management and strategic planning. According to Barney (1991), a firm can be said to possess competitive advantage when it achieves superior performance over its competitors by implementing a value-creating strategy that is not simultaneously being implemented by a competitor.

Motives of Internationalisation Firms who invest in the foreign markets often have the same reasons for expanding its operations within its home country. According to Dunning and Lundan (2008), there are four main intrinsic motives why firms become multinationals. The categories are efficiency-seeking, resource-seeking, strategic asset-seeking and market-seeking. Efficiency-seeking firm’s intention is to essentially decrease their tax load by operating in tax havens countries, such as the Bermuda and Caymans. Secondly, resource-seeking firms emphasizes on low-cost productions, skilled labour or raw materials in foreign subsidiaries.
1. INTRODUCTION The agency problem that exists in Merger and Acquisitions deals in recent years creates potential value-destroying mechanism to the firm. Jensen (1986) argues that there is a conflict of interest between the managers and shareholders over such issues as the optimal size of the firm and the payment of cash to shareholders. He argues that managers seem to invest the firm free cash flow to build their own empire in his own interest. Roll (1986) in his paper states that manager believes their own valuations are superior to the market, which causes them to overpay.
METHODOLOGY Introduction A mixed method approach has been adopted for use in this study. The rationale for combining quantitative and qualitative approaches is to aid the generation of a broader understanding of the data collected (Creswell, 2009). While the main is quantitative (utilising experimental measures and conditions), certain quantitative tools required further support. Therefore, a number of participants were interviewed with the aim of eliciting further understanding. Mixed method approaches are commonly regarded as more robust that singular approaches, and can offset limitations associated with one approach or the other (Creswell, 2009:4).
As time passes they manner in which companies restructure their corporate identity after consolidation will just become better due to the vast amount of resources, knowledge and past cases available. Companies will better learn how to keep both customers happy as it can happen that during an acquisition when the acquired companies name is erased customers have a negative reaction to it as they feel it is unethical and disconnected with the firm. Many companies face a difficulties trying to gain the market of the acquires company as they no longer have the trust due to the eradicating of the acquired company but slowly and slowly there are surveys and researched being carried out to overcome this difficulty and customers now adapt better as the firm that is acquiring has a better idea of how to deal with the
