Managing Global Acquisitions and Restructuring National Taiwan University
M&A and leveraged buyout (LBO) have been used by global players to restructure and even strengthen their global deployments of resources, capabilities, talents. We are going to study several latest cases in achieving these strategic objectives, such as Lenovo acquired Motorola from Google to strength its IPR (intellectual propriety right) portfolio and brand equity in mobile devices in 2014; Colgene bought Receptos out for a potential blockbuster drug in 2015, just to name some. The types of global M&A include stock-based merge, cash-based acquisition, and leveraged buyout. Once completed, cross-border takeover deals need to get approval from the regulators of both home and host countries. In addition, the acquiring firmentails ownership rearrangement, asset revitalization, employee redeployment, organizational transformation, and resource integration. Those restructuring efforts are critical for enhancing economic, accounting, and social value.
Regarding the pedagogical approach, we are going to discuss core theories, best business practices, visionary thinking, seamless implementation, and policy implications. You can expect to learn the best models and approaches for undertaking projects of cross-border M&A, private-equity buyouts, and corporate restructuring.
