Case of DaimlerChrysler merger

The case is about merger and demerger of the two automotive companies which have dedicated and skilled workforces and successful products, but in different markets and in different regions of the world, i.e. Daimler Benz of Germany and other company is Chrysler Corporation of US which take place merger in 1998 and demerged in year of 2007. This study analyses the potential sources of value creation and destruction, and evidence on how this process has affected the valuation of the Daimler Chrysler merger. We also discuss some of the important issues that must be taken into account in cross-border mergers and acquisitions. Differences in corporate culture, compensation policies, ownership structure, and the legal environment may pose significant challenges to international business combinations.

This is the historic merger that will change the face of the automotive industry.

In a Modigliani-Miller framework, if mergers do create value, they do so by changing tax liabilities, changing contracting costs, or changing investment incentives. If the size, timing, and riskiness of the combined future cash flows of the merged firms exceed the cash flows of the separate firms (“synergy”), the merger will be a positive net present-value project. They include:- Tax motivation Mispricing inspiration Market power high price hypothesis motivation Earning diversification stimulation

In the case of Daimler Chrysler merger, several potential reasons exist for the merger. Daimler derives 63% of sales from Europe, while Chrysler depends almost exclusively on North America for 93% of its sales. “Both companies have product ranges with world-class brands that complement each other perfectly. They wanted to continue to maintain their brands and their distinct identities.” Moreover, both companies are trying to…...

...Chapter 2: Global Outlook Will the next wave of m&a create more value? After the M&A activity slowdown of the early 2000s, the market is experiencing a new surge of mergers and acquisitions. It is largely known that in the past, two-thirds of M&A transactions have destroyed value, often resulting in abject failure. In this context, the key question today is: Will the new wave of M&A create more value than the previous one? Lessons from the past, we have tried to identify the reasons driving value creation and value destruction in M&A deals by analysing 2500 M&A transactions that took place over the past 10 years in Europe. Four lessons jump out of this study and from our experience. First, there is no statistical correlation between the value creation and the size of the transaction. However, large scale transactions (more than $1bn) tend to destroy value whereas small scale transactions (less than $50m) tend to create value. During 2004-2005 periods, for instance, small scale transactions in our sample have an average positive return after one year of 6 percent, compared to -5 percent for the large scale transactions. Furthermore, the average return weighted by transaction amount is below the average non-weighted return, which means that large scale transactions are obviously tending to destroy more value than small scale ones. In this respect, it is interesting to mentionthe existence of some country specificities regarding the average......

...Mergers and Acquisitions CHAPTER 21 OPENING CASE I n April 2007, Netherlands-based ABN AMRO and U.K.-based Barclays announced a merger that would create the world’s largest asset manager as well as one of the world’s five largest banks. The value of the deal was about €67 billion ($91.07 billion). Under the terms of the merger, Barclays would offer 3.225 shares of the new company for each share held by ABN AMRO shareholders. Also, ABN AMRO agreed to sell LaSalle Bank to Bank of America for $21 billion, which would result in a €12 billion distribution to shareholders. How do companies like ABN AMRO and Barclays determine whether a merger is a good idea? This chapter explores reasons that mergers should take place, and, just as important, reasons why they should not. There is no more dramatic or controversial activity in corporate finance than the acquisition of one firm by another or the merger of two firms. It is the stuff of headlines in the financial press, and it is occasionally an embarrassing source of scandal. The acquisition of one firm by another is, of course, an investment made under uncertainty, and the basic principles of valuation apply. One firm should acquire another only if doing so generates a positive net present value for the shareholders of the acquiring firm. However, because the NPV of an acquisition candidate can be difficult to determine, mergers and acquisitions, or M&A activities, are interesting topics in their own right. Some of the......

...and subtract the cash outflow (the cost of the new project), this difference is the Net Present Value, or NPV. In table 1 you will see that the net present value of this project is $471,053.10. “In the case when all future cash flows are incoming and the only outflow of cash is the purchase price, the NPV is simply the PV of future cash flows minus the purchase price (which is its own PV). NPV is a central tool in discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, and is a standard method for using the time value of money to appraise long-term projects. Used for capital budgeting, and widely throughout economics, finance, and accounting, it measures the excess or shortfall of cash flows, in present value terms, once financing charges are met.” (Princeton n.d.) Basically the NPV is a way of telling us that we will make money on the project, and judging by the NPV of $471,053.10 we can assess that the new project will pay for itself and start making positive cash flows within 5 years. With these figures I would recommend that Google go ahead with the new project and expect, with predicted cash flows, that the project will make money for Google. Part II One financial goal of business leaders and decision makers is to maximize the shareholders’ wealth. Therefore, merger and acquisition decisions should be consistent with shareholder wealth maximization, and financial characteristics of the targets to consider in the decision-making process.

They are both an aspect of corporate finance, finance and corporate strategy dealing with the selling, buying, dividing and bringing different companies together that can help the corporation to expand its operations. A merger can be explained as a legal process that involves consolidation of two companies into a single entity (Ernst & Young, 1994) .An acquisition occurs when a corporation acquires more than 50% of the stock shares of another company. The company holding company takes over and assumes ownership of the target company. In the United States, Mergers and acquisitions have been a popular occurrence due to the number of large companies with huge amounts of resources. Companies are also engaging in M&A activities in order to take advantage of the gaps in the market and also to increase their market share. In the United States, Microsoft announced the acquisition of Volp Company Skype at a cost of $8.56 billion in cash. This was after Skype announced its operating profit of $264 million. Technically, this was a loss of up to $7 million as it also had debts that amounted to $686 million. This was the second time Skype had been bought having been established in 2003.

...Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are both aspects of strategic management, corporate finance and management dealing with the buying, selling, dividing and combining of different companies and similar entities that can help an enterprise grow rapidly in its sector or location of origin, or a new field or new location, without creating a subsidiary, other child entity or using a joint venture. Methods to pursue a strategy can be divided into three categories: internal growth, external growth (mergers, acquisitions, disposals) and collaboration (alliances and partnerships). Of course, these conditions can also affect other policies, such as the consolidation of a competitive position or the establishment of an advantage through economies of scale. In this task, we will focus on mergers and acquisitions. 1) Definitions: An acquisition corresponds to the repurchase of an organization by another organization, while a merger is the decision mutually granted by organizations to share their ownership. Most of the acquisitions are friendly: both parts get on the terms of the repurchase, and the direction of the target recommends to his(her) shareholders to accept the offer. However, certain acquisitions are hostile: the buyer proposes then a price to the shareholders of the target against the advice of his managers. The choice of the shareholders is then decisive. The direction(management) of Cadbury so initially rejected the hostile offer of Kraft by looking for a more......

Mergers and Acquisitions

...Executive Summary The reason behind mergers and acquisitions is to create more value as two organisations put together would be more valuable than two separate organisations whereas the basic theory behind buying an organisation is to build shareholder value over and above of the sum of the two organisations. Mergers and acquisitions have become a regular occurrence of growth for organisations in the recent years. Organisations are presented with likely wider market share as well as open to a more diversified market. Mergers has most times been seen to be profitable both competition and consumers by allowing companies to run more successfully. It may occasionally lead to decrease competition in some ways and highly complicated as can be seen in today's world. There are laws governing mergers and acquisitions in the UK which is covered in the city Code on Takeovers and Mergers which is created to ensure that shareholders are cared for and not denied the privilege to decide on the value of a takeover and that shareholders of the same standard are afforded equal rights by an offeror. CSR is the process of evaluating a company's impact on the society and assessing their responsibilities. It defines areas of concern and initiatives to better relations with the people as well as the environments affected by business functions.

...4. Egyptian Case Studies Azza El-Shinnawy and Heba Handoussa INTRODUCTION This chapter presents three cases of recent foreign investment in Egypt. In the case of the Egyptian Company for Mobile Services (MobiNil), an international consortium takes over a state-run mobile phone service, and modernises its operations in a rapidly growing and transforming market. The local partner subsequently becomes a regional player in Africa and the Middle East. Glaxo Smith Kline, a leading pharmaceutical firm, expands in Egypt through multiple acquisitions, while the parent firm itself is subject to M&A at a global level. The leading-brand ketchup manufacturer Heinz has established a production facility for the Middle East jointly with a Kuwaiti multinational specialising in being the local partner for foreign fast-food chains throughout the Arab countries. THE EGYPTIAN COMPANY FOR MOBILE SERVICES (MOBINIL) Introduction Mobile telephony is capturing an increasing share of global telecommunications services, accounting for 23 per cent of global telecommunications revenues (up from 3 per cent in 1990).

Mergers and Acquisitions

...Introduction Mergers and acquisition (M&A) varies from country to country. Some countries have laws regulating M&A while others don’t. M&A basically is a combination of two or more businesses into one new business. What defines the merger or acquisition is how the combination is brought about. Mergers are usually negotiated between parties before the combination occurs while acquisition does not necessarily have to go through negotiations between parties. Mergers and Acquisition can succeed or fail base on a number of factors. This paper will examine the concept of mergers and acquisition, why M&A fail and possible recommendations Input Businesses sometimes merge or acquire to improve on their competitiveness and to meet their strategic objectives. Mergers and acquisition can come about because of stiff competition in the market or to create economies of scale or to enter new markets, or to diversify or a combination of many factors as mentioned in this sentence. Sometimes the only reason an acquire may purchase a business is for speculative profits, in that the sole purpose is to purchase with the intention to split them into smaller pieces and selling them or parts thereof for a price which is much higher than the acquiring price. Mergers and acquisition can also come about because of management failures. This situation can come about because management was unable to move the company in a positive direction which would have maximize shareholders wealth. Some......
