    Hi All!

    This is for everyone that is sitting BUSS4 in June'12. As you all may or may not know, we need to have a vast amount of knowledge regarding mergers and takeovers. I thought it would be a good idea to open this thread, so that we can all discuss mergers/takeovers, and share information.

    Hiya,
    My teacher has predicted what questions she thinks are gonna come up... and she is pretty good at it as she did it with buss3 and the exact questions came up haha...

    Either...

    A question on Government intervention (should/ shouldn't intervene?)
    A question on stakeholders (Positive outcomes for stakeholders/ most important stakeholder etc...)
    A question on the most important factor that determines success! (Is cost savings the most important? Is stakeholder reaction the most important? Is due diligence?)

    We've done practice essays on loads of q's so hoping one comes up!!

    Almost certainly a 10 marker on some form of financial calculation so remember to revise NPV, ARR and Payback Period.
