Be sure the articles contain enough information about what actually happened in the failed merger or acquisition so that you can answer the questions below. Directions: Form a review comparing the two unsuccessful mergers/acquisitions you found. Address the following questions for each of the mergers/acquisitions you chose: What was the motive behind the merger/acquisition? What internal and external factors impacted the merger/acquisition decision? Use specific examples to justify your response. Which of the two unsuccessful merger/acquisitions you reviewed held the most risk of not working from the onset? Why? Give examples. Did either company use metrics during the merger/acquisition process to measure their progress? Describe and explain at least two additional metrics which could have been used by each company in monitoring their progress during the M&A process. 2. Read the following article (attached): What makes a merger successful by Paul Walker and David Hanna which describes a successful merger. Comment on the following: What research was conducted by both CEO’s on the other business before the merger? Why was this important? What management strengths and business process expertise did the companies demonstrate that helped make the merger successful? What role did the vision statement play in the success? Why is it important to have a vision statement? Compare the successful merger to one of the unsuccessful mergers you found. What three actions did Sage and State of the Art do that the unsuccessful merger did not do or did not do well? 3. Make sure to include at least 3 outside resources, one of which may be your text, to justify your suggestions. Your report should be professional and directed toward middle management.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
