A merger is when two companies come together to form a single entity. 

There are two types of mergers: Horizontal and vertical.
  1. Horizontal Merger – A horizontal merger involves two companies that operate in the same industry and serve the same customer base. The aim of this type of merger is to increase market share, reduce competition, and create economies of scale.
  2. Vertical Merger – A vertical merger involves two companies that operate at different stages of the supply chain. For example, a manufacturer may merge with a distributor to improve efficiency and reduce costs.


An acquisition is when one company acquires another company.

There are three types of acquisitions: Friendly, hostile and leveraged.
  1. Friendly Acquisition – A friendly acquisition involves the consent of the target company’s management. The acquiring company typically pays a premium for the target company’s shares.
  2. Hostile Acquisition – A hostile acquisition is when the acquiring company buys a significant portion of the target company’s shares without the approval of management. This type of acquisition is usually hostile and can lead to a hostile takeover.
  3. Leveraged Acquisition – Finally, a leveraged acquisition is when the acquiring company takes on a significant amount of debt to finance the acquisition. This type of acquisition can be risky, but can also lead to high returns if successful.
