Mergers and acquisitions is a phrased used to delineate the consolidation of two separate legal entities or companies through the memorialization of the transaction. When a company takes over, acquires, or merges with another company and establishes itself as the new company, such a transaction is colloquially referred to as an acquisition. From a legal perspective, the company that was acquired ceases to exist and the purchasing entity absorbs that company while the acquiring company’s stock continues its corporate existence. In contrast, the term merger indicate a transaction through which two separate legal entities combine through a complex set of agreements to form a new, singular legal entity. In a merger situation, the stock of the merging entities is surrendered and new stock is issued instead.
