BOOK EXCERPT:

Disney has done it. Chemical Bank has also. So, too, have thousands of other companies. In fact, it has become a staple of American business today: mergers and acquisitions. Spreading across all industry lines and encompassing corporations both large and small, merger and acquisition deals are booming. In 1995 alone, the value of all announced deals exceeded $300 billion, including Disney's $19 billion acquisition of Capital Cities and Chemical Bank's $10 billion merger with Chase Manhattan. As a dynamic means of fostering growth, more and more companies will be looking to "do the deal," making it essential for corporate managers and financial officers to know their way around the M&A process. In this authoritative new reference, Jeffrey Hooke-a specialist in the field who has participated in 70 corporate finance transactions-provides a practical, comprehensive, and well-rounded overview to the ins and outs of M&A deals. Using real-life examples, Hooke takes you step by step through the M&A process, outlining the fundamental principles that underlie deals and pinpointing the important strategies that play key roles in successful transactions. The first step is developing a disciplined acquisition plan that includes a researched assessment of management readiness and financial capability. With your finances in order, it's time to find the deal that matches your company's objectives. Hooke shows you how to initiate an acquisition search by starting your own program, screening candidates, and implementing direct contact; and when you're ready to price and close a deal, Hooke's proven valuation and negotiating strategies will have you on firm footing. An invaluable primer for corporate executives and investment professionals involved in the mergers and acquisitions process, M&A is the most complete guide available today. M&A gives you the A to Z on: * Key risks that face corporate acquirers-operating issues, the danger of overpayment, financial leverage concerns * Valuation tools-using the intrinsic value approach and applying the relative value method such as comparable P/E and EBIT ratios * Buyer categories-Window Shopper, Bottom Fisher, Strategic Buyer * Maximum deal size guidelines-affordability, management experience, corporate risk tolerance * The basics of negotiating and structuring-letter of intent (LOI), due diligence investigation, closing and postmerger integration * Selling a business-retaining a financial advisor, approaching the market, confirming a valuation range A savvy guide to mastering the art of M&A From an expert in the M&A field comes a one-of-a-kind book that takes business executives and investment professionals through the complete mergers and acquisitions process. "Jeffrey Hooke has done a fine job explaining the 'ins and outs' of a very complex business. He knows what he's talking about."-John C. Whitehead, former Co-Chairman, Goldman, Sachs & Co. "M&A takes the fear out of the decision-making process-a great pragmatic tool. Hooke has given us a fine 'how-to' manual."-Kenneth Tuchman, Managing Director, Lehman Brothers, Inc. "Hooke's basic outline of the dynamics involved provide a basic overview for both corporate executives and business students. His examples-real transactions coupled with the practicalities and legalities of the deal business-make for informative and enjoyable reading."-Gilbert W. Harrison, Chairman, Financo, Inc. "Jeffrey Hooke has written a first-class primer on the science and art of mergers and acquisitions. This book will be a standard for both students and practitioners in the field."-Glenn H. Hutchins, Senior Managing Director, The Blackstone Group

BOOK EXCERPT:

Practical, real-world advice and technical knowledge for corporate buyers who do M&A Did you ever do a search for the failure rate of M&A deals? Apparently, it's high. In fact, there are many studies that say M&A deals tend to fail a majority of the time, especially for corporate buyers. But are these statistics really true? Because if the majority of deals fail, then why would anyone keep doing them year after year? Does anyone do them right? Actually, a lot of people do them right. But if you believe the statistics, there seem to be a lot more people doing them wrong. The question is, how can buyers do deals the right way, so that they don't become just another statistic? This book answers that question and explains exactly how corporate buyers in particular can do deals the right way. Buyers who have the right mindset to approaching their deals, and a process that involves the right people with the right skills, are much more likely to have success in M&A. With that being said, this book contains practical real-world advice that has been applied in actual deals, and it provides the framework, best practices, and technical skills that are so important for executing successful deals and avoiding the failures. What's Inside Part one of the book provides a basic overview of the M&A market. It then turns its attention to the corporate buyer and explains some of the more common reasons why deals tend to fail for corporate buyers. From there, it provides a framework for these buyers to develop their own playbooks for approaching and executing deals in a consistent, reliable, and repeatable way. Part two of the book begins to cover some of the more technical details that a buyer should know when doing a deal. It explains in detail how M&A deals are structured and negotiated. It also points out where buyers need to be careful as they negotiate, so that they're choosing the right structures, keeping the economics of a deal fair, and aren't taking on any unnecessary risks. Part three of the book explains how businesses are valued, with a focus on the middle market where many businesses are privately owned. It explains purchase price multiples, discounted cash flow analysis, and how to measure returns. It also explains how accretion and dilution are created from a deal and why that's so important to a corporate buyer. Then, the book provides a framework so that buyers can use all of this information together in order to objectively decide for themselves what a business should be worth when negotiating a deal. Part four of the book covers some of the more advanced topics that buyers should be aware of when doing deals so that they don't run into unexpected surprises after a deal has closed. This includes explaining what a quality of earnings is, why it's important, and how it can affect a buyer's view on the valuation of a business, as well as how to navigate the complexities of carve-outs, cross-border transactions, structuring earn-outs, and valuing intangible assets. From having an appreciation for the mindset and process that goes into executing deals, to understanding how they're structured, negotiated, and valued, this book is intended to be the most useful, practical, and hands-on guide ever written for corporate buyers doing M&A deals in the middle market.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The role the South has played in contemporary conservatism is perhaps the most consequential political phenomenon of the second half of the twentieth century. The regions transition from Democratic stronghold to Republican base has frequently been viewed as a recent occurrence, one that largely stems from a 1960s-era backlash against left-leaning social movements. But as Joseph Lowndes argues in this book, this rightward shift was not necessarily a natural response by alienated whites, but rather the result of the long-term development of an alliance between Southern segregationists and Northern conservatives, two groups who initially shared little beyond opposition to specific New Deal imperatives. Lowndes focuses his narrative on the formative period between the end of the Second World War and the Nixon years. By looking at the 1948 Dixiecrat Revolt, the presidential campaigns of George Wallace, and popular representations of the region, he shows the many ways in which the South changed during these decades. Lowndes traces how a new alliance began to emerge by further examining the pages of the National Review and Republican party-building efforts in the South during the campaigns of Eisenhower, Goldwater, and Nixon. The unique characteristics of American conservatism were forged in the crucible of race relations in the South, he argues, and his analysis of party-building efforts, national institutions, and the innovations of particular political actors provides a keen look into the ideology of modern conservatism and the Republican Party.

BOOK EXCERPT:

There are thousands of mergers every year and, by some estimates, two-thirds of them either fail or fall far short of expectations. How can leaders keep their merger from becoming a head-on collision? In The Human Side of M&A, Dennis Carey and Dayton Ogden argue that most failed mergers looked good on paper--they made financial and strategic sense--but the crucial human element was neglected or overlooked. Consequently, corporate cultures often clash and wreck any chance that the companies will work harmoniously together. The authors, who have worked with many companies in the process of merging, draw on their unique experience to demonstrate how to address the human side of a merger, revealing pitfalls to avoid as well as best practices to pursue. They describe how to assess the quality of the people on both sides, aligned with the strategy, to determine whom to retain. They argue that the CEOs need to create a new vision for the combined company (one that differs from the visions of the two individual entities). And they stress that it is vitally important to move quickly once the merger is approved so that the new enterprise can hit the ground running on the first official day of operating as a combined company. The book concludes with a rigorous statistical appendix that analyzes some of the most successful mergers of the past ten years, validating the book's underlying theme and conclusions. While the volume of mergers may wax and wane depending on a host of economic factors, mergers will endure as a logical, efficient, and profitable strategy for many companies in a global economy. This book will help ensure the success of those who choose this path.
