What Happens in a Merger?
When two companies of similar sizes and scopes unite under the same umbrella to work together as one company, it’s called a merger. Once the course is set for the merger to happen, the stocks of both individual companies are liquidated, and new stock reflecting the unified company is issued. Each board of directors and its shareholders must approve the merger to move a merger forward.
What Happens in an Acquisition?
When a company takes over another company, one taking an ownership position, it’s called an acquisition. For an acquisition to take place without it being considered a takeover, the company being acquired must permit the acquiring entity. Once an acquired company is absorbed into the purchasing company, all its stocks and business identity cease to exist, but it’s not uncommon for the acquired company to continue operating as it did when it was separate.
