Merger, Acquisition, and International Strategies 

Assignment 4: Merger, Acquisition, and International Strategies
Choose  two (2) public corporations in an industry with which you are familiar –  one (1) that has acquired another company and operates internationally  and one (1) that does not have a history of mergers and acquisitions and  operates solely within the U.S. Research each company on its own. The annual report will often provide insights that can help  address some of these questions.

Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:

  1. For  the corporation that has acquired another company, merged with another  company, or been acquired by another company, evaluate the strategy that  led to the merger or acquisition to determine whether or not this  merger or acquisition was a wise choice. Justify your opinion.
  2. For  the corporation that has not been involved in any mergers or  acquisitions, identify one (1) company that would be a profitable  candidate for the corporation to acquire or merge with and explain why  this company would be a profitable target.
  3. For the corporation  that operates internationally, briefly evaluate its international  business-level strategy and international corporate-level strategy and  make recommendations for improvement.
  4. For the corporation that  does not operate internationally, propose one business-level strategy  and one corporate-level strategy that you would suggest the corporation  consider. Justify your proposals.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.
