"Professor DePamphilis' book is among the most comprehensive and best-written books on the topic of mergers and acquisitions I have ever read. In a world where private equity and hedge funds are supplanting traditional commercial and investment banking, a book like this comes in handy when traditional valuations fail to keep up with financial innovation. It marries the theory and practice. It is practical and complete. It is comprehensive and well-structured. And its attention to the world of cross-border transactions is timely and valuable." —Paul Schulte, Lecturer, Hilton School of Business, Loyola Marymount University; Chief Investment Strategist, Asia Pacific, Lehman Brothers "Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities provides a comprehensive overview all types of corporate restructurings. The book clearly shows which valuation technique is ideally suited for each type of restructuring. Not only is the validity of the motives of takeovers scrutinized, but this book also deals with corporate governance regulation. The book comprises an exhaustive treatment of all issues that arise in the restructuring processes, be it for takeovers, joint ventures, leverage buyouts, equity carve-outs etc. This book is a superb handbook, a must-read for scholars, practitioners, and policy makers concerned with corporate acquisitions." —Luc Renneboog, Professor of Corporate Finance, Tilburg University, The Netherlands; Research Fellow at the Center for Economic Research and the European Corporate Governance Institute, Brussels "Anyone interested in mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring can profit greatly by reading this very fine treatise by Dr. DePamphilis. It is comprehensive, insightful, and well-written. There are many case studies that show how the analyses discussed in the book may be applied. I wish
