The phrase mergers and acquisitions or M&A refers to the aspect of corporate finance strategy and management dealing with the merging and acquiring of different companies as well as other assets. Usually mergers occur in a friendly setting where executives from the respective companies participate in a due diligence process to ensure a successful combination of all parts. Historically, though, mergers have often failed to add significantly to shareholder value.

On other occasions, acquisitions can happen through hostile takeover by purchasing the majority of outstanding shares of a company in the open stock market. In the United States, business laws vary from state to state whereby some companies have limited protection against hostile takeover. One form of protection against hostile takeover is the so-called "poison pill".
