    The Role of Mergers and Acquisitions in Creating Shareholder Value
    "The basic objective of making acquisitions is identical to any other investment associated with a company's overall strategy, namely, to add value."
    From: Creating Shareholder Value; Alfred Rappaport; 1998 Free Press


    Due Diligence
    "Effective due diligence is both an art and a science. The art is the style and experience to know which questions to ask and how and when to ask them."
    From: Mergers and Acquisitions from A to Z; Andrew Sherman; 1998 Amacom


    Key Acquisition Risks
    "Successful acquirer's evaluate the attendant risk of doing a deal and decide if the risk/reward profile is appropriate for their respective organizations."
    From: M & A; Jeffrey Hooke; 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


    Laying the Groundwork for an Acquisition Search
    "Knowledge, experience, and contacts count for a lot in the M&A business and intermediaries are deficient in such areas."
    From: M & A; Jeffrey Hooke; 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


    Evaluating Target Companies' Financial Projections
    "Face-to-face due diligence meetings answer many questions about the key factors influencing sales and earnings in the target's business."
    From: M & A; Jeffrey Hooke; 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


    Assessing Financing Needs
    "To determine the amount of financing needed to buy another company, three questions will be paramount."
    From: The Art of M&A Financing and Refinancing; Alexandra Reed Lajoux; 1999 McGraw Hill Professional Book Group


    Understanding Leveraged Buyouts
    "By using large amounts of leverage, the LBO firm enhances its investment returns because lenders share little or none of the increase in value of the corporate assets."
    From: M & A; Jeffrey Hooke; 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


    Macroeconomic Aspects of Global M&A Financing
    "The "purely" domestic deal?involving two companies located entirely in the same country and financed entirely by local sources?is becoming an anachronism. "
    From: The Art of M&A Financing and Refinancing; Alexandra Reed Lajoux; 1999 McGraw Hill Professional Book Group


    Regulatory, Tax, and Accounting Issues in Structuring Deal Financing
    "The purchaser should attempt to minimize the tax costs of the transaction to the seller in order to gain advantage as a bidder."
    From: The Art of M&A Financing and Refinancing; Alexandra Reed Lajoux; 1999 McGraw Hill Professional Book Group


    Do Mergers and Acquisitions Create Shareholder Value?
    "To create value, the present value of synergies must be greater than the premium paid."
    From: Creating Shareholder Value; Alfred Rappaport; 1998 Free Press
