For
your final essay, you will be applying the concepts learned
throughout this course to an analysis of a merger or an
acquisition. Much of the information you will need to complete

Using the concepts from this course, you will analyze the success
of the merger or acquisition.

acquisition. Include the companies’ background information and
the reasons for the merger.

statement, cash flow statement).
Evaluate
the potential and actual risks that occurred during the merger
and what the companies could have done differently to mitigate
these risks.
Discuss
the companies’ management of human capital in the merger or
acquisition.
Evaluate
the soundness of the company’s financial policies after the
merger (e.g., capital structure, debt, leverage, dividend policy,
enterprise risk management, and others.) based on the material
covered during class.
Include
a synopsis of your findings, including your recommendations and
rationale for whether the merger or acquisition was beneficial to
both companies and your recommendation on best practices for
moving forward.
This analysis should be at least
three pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages.
Support your findings and recommendations with evidence from the
annual report and at least five scholarly sources, such as the
textbook, industry reports, and articles from the CSU Online
Library. Use APA format to cite and reference all sources,
including any websites that were used to access company
