Question.1. Explain the types of mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

 

Answer:A merger takes place when two companies combine together as equals to form an entirely new company. Mergers are rare, since most often companies are acquired by other companies, and it is more of absorption of operation of the target company. The term merger is more often used to show deference to employees and former owners when another company is taken over. Mergers and acquisition are a means to a long-term business strategy. New alliances, mergers or takeovers are usually based on company vision and mission statements, and they have to truly reflect company corporate strategy in terms of what it wants to

Question.3. Explain about Management buyouts (MBO), its motives and structure.

 

Answer:A transaction where a company’s management team purchases the assets and operations of the business they manage. A management buyout (MBO) is appealing to professional managers because of the greater potential rewards from being owners of the business rather than employees. MBOs are favored exit strategies for large corporations who wish to pursue the sale of divisions that are not part of their core business, or by private businesses where the owners wish to retire. The financing required for an MBO is often quite substantial, and is usually a combination of debt and equity that is derived from the buyers, financiers and

Role of government policies in international M&A (4 Marks)

 

Answer:Apart from this, the domestic industry might not have the capabilities to succeed in a particular sector nor the expertise to develop that sector. Therefore, FDI becomes necessary for the growth of that sector. Moreover, opening up of the economy is needed for admission into the WTO or the World Trade Organization, which means that in order to export to other countries, emerging and developing market economies have to open up. These are some of the reasons why many governments in developing countries

 

 

 

Question.5. Explain the types of takeovers. Explain defenses against takeover bids.

 

Answer:When an acquiring company makes a bid for a target company. If the takeover goes through, the acquiring company becomes responsible for all of the target company’s operations, holdings and debt. When the target is a publicly traded company, the acquiring company will make an offer for all of the target’s outstanding shares.

 

A welcome takeover generally goes smoothly because both companies consider it a positive situation. In contrast, an unwelcome or hostile takeover can be quite unpleasant. The acquiring firm can use unfavorable tactics such as a dawn

 

 

 

Question.6. Explain the valuation approaches. Explain the business valuation methods.

 

Answer:For one thing, there is no one way to establish what a business is worth. That’s because business value means different things to different people.

In addition, economic conditions affect what

Answer:Investment Policy:The initial step, setting investment policy, involves determining the inverstor’s objectives ant the amount of his or her investable wealth. Because there is a positive relationship between risk and return for sensible investment strategies, it is not appropriate for an investor to say that his or her objective is to “make a lot of money.” What is appropriate for an investor in this situation is to state that the objective is to attempt to make a lot of money while recognizing that there is some chance that large losses may be incurred.

Question.5. Explain the assumptions of Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). Give a short note on Separation Theorem, Capital Market Line (CML) and Security Market Line (SML)

For example if we know the risk free rate of return is 5 percent and beta of security is 2 and excepted market return is10 percent then we can compute the excepted return of stock will be 15 percent which can be calculated as 5 + 2(10-5)

Question. 1. Winning leaders are distinguished from wannabes—from bureaucrats, dictators and managers—by their extraordinary success at teaching others to be leaders as well.

 

Explain with example.

 

 

Answer:Great leaders drive great organizations and great organizations produce great results. On the other hand, less than stellar results are typically produced by organizations with less than stellar leadership, begging the question, “What are the differences between winning and losing leadership styles and traits?”

 

Here are 12 differences worth considering:

 

  1. Winners have a vision and communicate it often through stories and the written word. They want to engage and motivate their teams – helping staff better understand how their achievements lead to a greater good. Leaders at losing organizations have no vision and any goals that they have are aimed purely at personal gain.

 

  1. Leaders at winning organizations lead by example. They do the things that they ask others to do. They don’t shirk responsibilities. Losers tell and don’t do. They evade responsibility if things go wrong

A store employee who is preoccupied with running the standard operations of the store will often emphasize store tasks over customer service.
