Assignment 4: Merger, Acquisition, and International Strategies 
Due Week 8 and worth 300 points
Choose two (2) public corporations in an industry with which you are familiar – one (1) that has acquired another company and operates internationally and one (1) that does not have a history of mergers and acquisitions and operates solely within the U.S. Research each company on its own Website, the public filings on the Securities and Exchange Commission EDGAR database (http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml), in the University’s online databases, and any other sources you can find. The annual report will often provide insights that can help address some of these questions.
Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:

  1. For the corporation that has      acquired another company, merged with another company, or been acquired by      another company, evaluate the strategy that led to the merger or      acquisition to determine whether or not this merger or acquisition was a      wise choice. Justify your opinion.
  2. For the corporation that has      not been involved in any mergers or acquisitions, identify one (1) company      that would be a profitable candidate for the corporation to acquire or      merge with and explain why this company would be a profitable      target.
  3. For the corporation that      operates internationally, briefly evaluate its international      business-level strategy and international corporate-level strategy and      make recommendations for improvement.
  4. For the corporation that does      not operate internationally, propose one business-level strategy and one      corporate-level strategy that you would suggest the corporation consider.      Justify your proposals.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality      references. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as      academic resources.
