A knowledge of restructuring and reorganizing transactions, how they work, and their competitive, strategic, and value consequences should be the foundation of business and finance careers. James Seward emphasizes similarities among these transactions as well as their distinctive advantages, features and characteristics. Readers learn how to decompose complex transactions and structures into their basic components and how to analyze them with the tools of modern corporate finance. He presents detailed real-world examples and illustrations by examining restructured and reorganized companies. Reinforcing the proper management of corporations, he shows how these analytical tools deliver practical insights about the sources of enterprise value enhancement in each transactional form. His book replaces largely descriptive, superficial, and selectively incomplete treatments of these transactions with fundamentals designed to produce more focused, competitive entities and to enhance shareholder value.
