Following an active decade of mergers and acquisitions, in January 1981 the Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions at New York University held a conference to explore a wide range of issues concerning mergers and acquisitions. Participants included academics, lawyers, government regulators, security-industry representatives as well as representatives actively involved in the merger process. A product of the conference, this book encompasses theoretical questions concerning mergers and acquisitions, legal and social concerns, and mergers in the context of corporate strategic planning.
