This discussion assignment has three parts. You should use brief headings to separate your post into the three sections.

In the first section, do some research to identify an organization  that has recently experienced acquisition, merger, or restructuring as  discussed in the course materials. Briefly describe the action (e.g.,  acquisition, merger, restructuring) including an evaluation of why it  occurred and the outcome (e.g., is it working? Is it accomplishing what  was expected?). This first section only needs to be one or two  paragraphs.

For the second section, select one of the following bullet  point topics. If someone has already posted on one of the bullet points. The second section of  your post only needs to be one or two paragraphs.

  • Of the many reasons discussed in your readings for making  acquisitions, the rationale that may be the strongest is that  acquisitions allow firms to capture new capabilities. From among the  other reasons for making an acquisition listed in the readings, choose  the one that you think provides the strongest rationale for making an  acquisition. Defend your choice with research and provide appropriate  examples.
  • Similar to the previous bullet point, choose a reason for making an  acquisition that you think provides the weakest rationale. Defend your  choice with research and provide appropriate examples.
  • As noted in the course lecture, mergers and acquisitions are similar  strategic moves. Evaluate some of the reasons that an organization  might choose one option (merger or acquisition) over the other. Defend  your reasons with research and provide appropriate examples.
  • Evaluate when restructuring can be seen as a positive business  strategic move. In your response, be sure to analyze how shareholder  value is created through restructuring. Defend your reasons with  research and provide appropriate examples.

The final section or paragraph (three or four sentences) of your  initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are  making in your initial response.

Your posting should be the equivalent of 1 to 2 single-spaced pages (500–1000 words) in length.
