An acquisition involves the purchase of one company by another company, and a merger involves the combination of two entities to form a new enterprise. Treating M&A as a strategic capability can give companies a competitive edge over their peers as successful M&A deals create value for the company.
The emergence of the knowledge-based economy has brought significant change in the marketplace. Knowledge has become the core resource of any innovative enterprise, and plays a key role in driving changes in companies.
M&A is a key component of corporate growth strategy. Through M&A, a company can improve its competitiveness in numerous ways, such as by:
- Gaining access to IP assets such as patents, R&D and technology
- Increasing market share
- Entering new markets
- Diversifying product line
- Vertical integration of supply chain
