Praise for Lifecycle of a Technology Company "Lifecycle of a Technology Company is a comprehensive business and legal handbook for all but the most experienced technology entrepreneurs. I shared my copy with a few colleagues at MIT who have either started or are contemplating launching their own companies, and I had a real problem retrieving it. The data supports my opinion that this book will attain 'handbook' status on the desks of technology entrepreneurs." -Dr. George B. Kenney, Associate Director Materials Processing & Microphotonics Centers at MIT "This book will help entrepreneurs avoid the pitfalls on the long road to success for venture-backed technology companies. It distills a lifetime of experience in advising technology companies in a concise and understandable way." -Howard Berke, Serial Entrepreneur and Venture Capitalist "Lifecycle of a Technology Company provides a valuable resource for lawyers at a variety of experience levels. The junior lawyer will use this resource for the basics. More experienced lawyers with a broad practice will use this for a 'sanity check' relative to market terms and business rationale. In the trenches, it will assist lawyers by providing practical, plain speaking explanations for why things operate as they do in the finance, intellectual property, and merger & acquisition segments of the technology world. If you expect to represent technology clients, keep this book nearby." -James O'Hare, Partner Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis, Boston

Basierend auf der Untersuchung von mehr als 150 strategischen Schachzügen (im Lauf von mehr als 100 Jahren und in mehr als 50 Branchen) vertreten die Autoren die Ansicht, dass nachhaltiger Erfolg nicht auf verschärftem Konkurrenzkampf, sondern auf der Eroberung »Blauer Ozeane« beruht: der Erschließung neuer Märkte mit großem Wachstumspotenzial. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie präsentiert einen systematischen Ansatz, wie man Konkurrenz irrelevant macht, und legt Prinzipien und Methoden vor, mit der jede Organisation ihre eigenen Blauen Ozeane erobern kann. Diese erweiterte Auflage enthält: - Ein neues Vorwort der Autoren: Hilfe!

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied.

Few business activities can match Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in terms of the potential for reward and for danger. A successful merger or acquisition can allow a mid-tier company to leap into the top tier, bringing rich rewards to that company, and its employees and shareholders. The failure of a merger can, on the other hand, have a devastating impact, resulting a loss of credibility, destruction of value and in some cases bringing the parties to ruin. Depending on how you measure it, between 50% and 80% of M&A deals fail to attain their objectives, before or even after the deal is done. Practical M&A Execution and Integration is all about maximising your chances of success. Merging, de-merging, acquiring or acquired, if your organisation is involved, or likely to be involved, you will need to manage the process, and following this Handbook will give you a clear, simple framework to get the job done and help your organisation move on and attain the benefits and promise of the deal. The book covers the following core topics: Fundamentals of M&A; the reasons for M&A, types of M&A deals and the challenges they present M&A Regulation Successful M&A, covering M&A power and providing a detailed look at the processes and people involved Delivering M&A The unique issues of Banking M&A, which differs significantly from other types of M&A deals. The final section consists of document templates and suggested tables of contents which are designed to be used alongside the advice in the book, thus making Practical M&A Execution and Integration the complete guide to constructing a successful M&A deal.

The authoritative resource for analyzing mergers and acquisitions (M&A) from every angle Paul Pignataro reveals the secrets behind growth through M&A in his new book, Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings + Website. Through market shifts and regulatory changes, M&A has served as a solid approach to growth. Creating value through mergers and acquisitions is a highly coveted strategy, and Wall Street has long sought a clear technical understanding of the components of M&A as a key driver of growth. In this book, the author provides that understanding, covering all essential aspects of accounting and modeling for the M&A process. With over a decade of experience aiding billion-dollar restructuring deals, Paul Pignataro is in an excellent position to break down M&A from a finance standpoint. Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings covers the financial accounting and modeling behind several M&A structures. Using the merger of Office Depot and Office Max, Mr. Pignataro fully addresses the entire integration, explains EBITDA, and other crucial performance measures. This text is for finance practitioners who want to explore every corner of the M&A process. Learn accounting for asset acquisitions, asset divestitures, and corporate mergersExplore modeling methods including mini-merger modeling and fully consolidated merger modelingRead case studies demonstrating the practical success of theoretical modelsUnderstand EBITDA, cash flow, capital structure, and their impact on M&A success and value creation This new text from the CEO and founder of the New York School of Finance is key for understanding how restructuring leads to growth and value creation. The importance of M&A shows no signs of slowing, meaning that finance professionals need to be able to accurately analyze the prospects and impacts of restructuring moves. Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings + Website is the authoritative resource for doing just that. From the Inside Flap As a strategy, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) hold the promise of adding value and refreshing the financial landscape for large and small corporations. And despite inevitable changes in regulations, markets, and industries, M&A transactions—which include divestitures and other restructurings—continue to evolve and thrive as a tactic for growth. But a successful M&A transaction requires careful information-gathering and modeling followed by discerning analysis—a complex process that has, outside of Wall Street, largely remained a mystery. Until now. In Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings: A Practical Guide to Investment Banking and Private Equity, Paul Pignataro, founder and CEO of the New York School of Finance, offers a clear, step-by-step guide to the technical analysis behind M&A, whether you're a novice or an expert investor. He lays out the fundamental tools you need to analyze financial information and determine the key drivers of value—even if you don't have a team of expert analysts on call. You'll first receive a valuable refresher in the basics of financial statements, such as income statements, cash flow statements, and balance sheets. Then, the book deftly guides you through essential M&A transactions, such as determining whether to raise debt or equity, acquire or divest assets, perform accretion or dilution analysis, and more. You'll soon understand how to perform merger modeling, including mini-merger modeling and fully consolidated merger modeling. And you'll have the opportunity to apply what you've learned to real life. Using the merger of Office Depot and Office Max as a case study, Paul Pignataro puts you into the role of an investment banker, where you get a firsthand perspective as you evaluate this major M&A transaction using the same modeling tools as bulge bracket investment banks and top private equity firms. Packed with detail, this valuable book also includes a website with downloadable financial models and more. Whether you're preparing for a career or are an independent investor, this book is the ideal resource to sharpen your analytical skills. It's also the perfect refresher for active investment banking or private equity professionals seeking a thorough review of M&A modeling essentials. From the Back Cover Praise for Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings "Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings is an excellent follow-up to Pignataro's previous books on valuation and leveraged buyouts. This book serves as a fantastic primer for those looking to understand the practical application of investment banking." —Fred Coulson, Founder and Managing Partner, Five Elms Capital "I have had the pleasure to work with Paul's graduate students over many years, all of whom learned from the materials which now comprise this book. Paul's students have become some of the best analysts on Wall Street, and I am happy to see his material published so it can be accessed by a wider audience eager to learn the fine art and science of M&A, divestiture, and restructuring analysis." —Julio Marquez, Adjunct Professor, New York School of Finance, and President, Nymex Capital, New York, NY "Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings is a natural follow-up to Mr. Pignataro's first book serving investment banking professionals and business students looking to get into the field. As a founder of a leading investment banking, private equity, and hedge fund recruiting business, and as the former head of the analyst and associate programs at Morgan Stanley, I know the importance of demonstrated proficiency in financial modeling and valuation both during the hiring process and on the job. Mr. Pignataro's book serves as an excellent guide, stepping through the model building process in complete detail with methodologies critical to both budding analysts and experienced professionals." —Eleni Henkel, CEO & Founder at HSP | Henkel Search Partners; former Managing Director and Global Head of Morgan Stanley's Analyst and Associate Programs "Paul Pignataro's exploration of the mergers, acquisitions, and restructuring world drives the reader in the meanders of this complex world where financing, accounting, legal, and valuation sometimes create the impression of a labyrinth. By identifying these challenges, Paul provides a path to a better understanding of these subtle interactions. His experience of the complexity of these transactions makes him a particularly expert guide to those who want to get an in-depth understanding of the most complex financial transactions." —Georges Ugeux, Chairman and CEO, Galileo Global Advisors LLC "Mergers, Acquisitions, Divestitures, and Other Restructurings provides an indispensable, detailed 'how to' reference for the broad scope of restructuring strategies and techniques that corporations draw upon to achieve growth and profitability goals and objectives." —Charles H.

News of a merger or acquisition is a big event in the life of a company, which stirs uncertainty, anxiety and fear. The changes, redundancies and so on, that often follow this news, are a further source of turmoil for the employees of both companies involved. There is no magic formula to avoid these effects completely. However, good planning, communication and human resource practice can mitigate the worst of them; keep everyone that matters on board; and ensure that the new organization maintains your reputation for sensitive people management. Get it wrong, on the other hand, and you may lose the very people you were most anxious to keep; put the success of the process at risk and even face employment tribunals or other legal proceedings. In addition, imagine how these processes are complicated by any transnational elements. James F. Klein and Robert-Charles Kahn provide a practical, hands-on guide to successfully integrating HR functions following any merger or acquisition within Europe. The book guides you step by step, providing the methodology, tools, sequence of events and necessary material. It includes comparative tables, tips and stories illustrating the differences, specific issues and pitfalls that are particular to the different European countries. 20 years of human resources experience across companies in continental Europe has gone into creating this blueprint to successfully implementing the people side of successful mergers and acquisitions.
