For this, think about your SLP company and the possibility of its merging with another company. Write a 2- to 3-page paper answering the following questions:
- If you were to pick one company for your SLP company to merge with, what would it be? Explain your choice with respect to possible benefits of this merger and why you would choose this company over any other choice for a potential merger.
- How would you finance a takeover of this chosen corporation? Explain your reasoning.
- What would your second and third choices be for a merger with your SLP company?Again, explain your reasoning for wanting to merge with these companies, and why they would be second or third choices rather than your first choice.
Remember to make use of the background materials in your analysis as well as additional research. Reference all of your main sources of information and use multiple references in your analysis.
Note: Your report/assignment will not be accepted without proper citations and references. You must use the sources from the background material together with the sources you find on your own. It is also required that you answer all the questions related to learning outcomes.
In the Module, you are expected to:
- Describe the purpose of the paper and provide a conclusion.
- Answer the SLP questions clearly and provide necessary details. Reorganize the paper and delete all the unnecessary information from the previous modules. For example, you have described the purpose of the paper and conclusion in the previous four SLPs. Delete them from the Module 5 SLP.
- Write clearly and correctly—that is, no poor sentence structure, no spelling and grammar mistakes, and no run-on sentences.
- Provide citations to support your argument and references on a separate page. Use APA format to provide citations and references [http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/].
- Answer all the SLP questions in an essay format. Do not type questions in the paper.
- Type and double-space the paper.
- Whenever appropriate, please use Excel to show supporting computations in an appendix, present financial information in tables, and use the data computed to answer follow-up questions. In finance, in addition to being able to write well, it’s important to present information in a professional manner and to analyze financial information. This is part of the assignment expectations and will be considered for grading purposes.
