How A Merger Works

A merger happens when a company combines operations with another company. In practice, one company will buy the other company’s stock in exchange for its own stock. In some cases, cash is used to pay for the company’s stock but usually the companies agree to a stock-for-stock transaction.

Due to the exchange and acquisition of stock, a merger is similar to an acquisition. This is why the two terms are commonly grouped together as mergers and acquisitions (M&A). However, in a merger, the leadership & operations of both companies usually change dramatically, while during an acquisition this is less likely to happen.
