(Glossary of Limited Liability Company and Incorporation Terms)
Merger = The takeover of one company by another. It is the ***absorption*** of one
company by another, the former ***losing its legal identity***, and the latter retaining
its own name and identity and acquiring assets, liabilities, franchises, and powers of
former, and the absorbed company ceasing to exist as a seperate business entity.
(on this page, some of the words in the text below are linked to detailed definitions.)
The fusion of two or more separate companies into one. In current usage merger is a
special case of combination, where both the merging companies wish to join together
and do so on roughly equal terms, as distinct from a take-over, which occurs against the
wishes of one company. However, merger, take-over, amalgamation, ***absorption*** and
fusion are sometimes all used as synonyms. Where two firms in the same business, i.e.
competitors, merge, this is known as horizontal integration. Where two firms that are
suppliers or customers of one another merge, this is known as vertical integration.
Acquisitions and mergers have been an important cause of increasing concentration and some
economists have argued that major mergers should be more closely controlled by the
authorities, even where they do not threaten to reduce competition directly (see
Monopolies and Mergers Commission; Take-over Panel). This is because pressures to maintain
high short-term earnings and hence share prices to avoid the risk of a take-over bid may
inhibit investment in research and development. Against this it is argued that mergers are
the only way of transferring assets to more capable hands when existing management has
proved deficient. The value of merger activity has fluctuated roughly in line with
stock-market prices. Not all acquisitions involve take-overs of independent companies. In
recent years between one-fifth and one-third of total expenditure has been accounted for
by sales of subsidiaries between company groups. Management buy-outs have also been
growing. See conglomerate; holding company; reverse take-over.
