Company merger and acquisition (M&A)
Mergers and acquisitions are a type of business reorganization in which companies pool their capital. In other words, this is an accession to another legal entity.

In international transactions, this process is called "Mergers and Acquisitions", or M&A. Merger just means “merger”, and acquisition means “acquisition”.

The sale and purchase of a business, property complexes and other expensive assets, mergers and acquisitions, the creation and participation of partners in a joint business without forming a legal entity require a structural approach that takes into account corporate, tax, antitrust factors and industry specifics of the business.
