Finance > M & A/JV > Introduction

The terms Merger, Acquisition and Take-over are all part of the M&A parlance. In a merger, the companies come together to combine and share their resources to achieve common objectives. The shareholders of the combining firms often remain as joint owners of the combined entity. An acquisition resembles more of an arm's-length deal, with one firm purchasing the assets or shares of another, and with the acquired firm's shareholders ceasing to be owners of that firm. In a merger, a new entity may be formed subsuming the merging firms, whereas in an acquisition the acquired firm becomes the subsidiary of the acquirer firm.

Indian banking has entered M&A era with merger of Times Bank with HDFC Bank.
