This is the definitive sourcebook for collecting information required for corporate merger and acquisition research. A particular strength of the Guide is its focus on time-sharing online databanks for information retrieval. Readers can learn which databanks can be used for M&A research, and search examples and techniques are described. The authors use their research expertise to identify appropriate strategies, provide database tips and techniques, and point out unique features of the many M&A research tools discussed in the Guide. In addition, they discuss issues such as database cost and comprehensiveness and the currency of information delivery by identifying those databases offering current awareness capabilities. Examples of search sessions in electronic databases are provided to illustrate the creation and use of current awareness profiles. Monitoring M&A activity, researching specific deals, using Securities and Exchange Commission filings, researching with specialized M&A transaction databases, using electronic databanks to find acquisition candidates, tracking complex corporate relationships and international M&As are the primary subjects of coverage. The database categories--both print and electronic sources--include: filings databases, transaction databases, directory databases, monitoring databases, financial databases, legal databases and bibliographic databases. The Guide is a tool for the users of corporate change information that include economists, accountants, attorneys, financial analysts and officers, managers, academics, and students of business.

Editorial Reviews

?Business librarians should examine this guide carefully, since it has much to offer on a popular topic. Although the popularity of mergers and acquisitions has subsided in the 1990s as compared to the 1980s, they still occur, as does the restructuring of many companies due to bankruptcy and other debt problems. The compilers, librarians from the Wharton School of Business, write from a business, not a legal standpoint. Online sources are stressed more than conventional print media. Since the authors believe online databases offer greater speed of information for M & A activity, they describe these sources and give examples of what each has to offer. This technique makes it easier for novices to understand and acts as a quick review for experienced database searchers. Arranged by chapters, the book also contains two appendixes charting the giving addresses of the databases discussed and a glossary of terms. The binding and typography are exemplary. Highly recommended for business libraries.?-Choice
