Mergers and acquisitions refers to the buying, selling and combining of different companies to help a company in a particular industry to grow quickly without having to create another business entity. You’ll find here information on joint ventures and alliances, management buy outs, amalgamations, takeovers, liquidations, divestitures and due diligence.
There is another page for the transfer of undertakings (TUPE).
