As per current scenario corporate restructuring is one of the most widely used strategic tools.
In daily news we come a cross frequently with the headlines of merger, acquisitions, takeover, joint venture, demerger and so on. Since last two decades as especially after, the liberalization and consequent globalization and privatization have resulted into tough competition not only in Indian business but globally as well.
The main objective of any company is profitable growth of enterprise to maximize the wealth of its shareholders. Further, to achieve profitable growth of business it is necessary for any company to limit competition, to gain economies of large scale and increase in income with proportionally less investment, to access foreign market, to achieve diversification and utilize underutilized market opportunities. In order to achieve goals, business needs to remain competitive and work towards its long term sustainability.
Corporate restructuring has facilitated thousand of companies to re-establish their competitive advantage and respond more quickly and effectively to new opportunities and unexpected challenges. Under different dynamic situations as laid above, a profitable growth of business can achieved successfully if as a strategic tool merger is adopted. The most remarkable examples of growth and often the largest increases in stock prices are a result of mergers and acquisitions. M&A’s provide tremendous opportunities for companies to grow and add value to stake holder’s wealth. M&A’s increase value and efficiency and thereby increase holders value. M&A’s is a generic term used to represent many different types of corporate restructuring exercises.
In order to avoid difficulties it is necessary to carry out initial investigation in various areas like growth potential, profitability, strength in terms of skills and capabilities, financial projections of the impact and value of merger, etc., need to be systematically thought out and planned.
The main objective of any merger activity is profitable growth of business to maximize wealth of its stakeholders. The trend towards globalization of all national and regional economies has increased the intensity of mergers, in a bid to create more focused, competitive, viable larger players, in each industry. If an industrial want to survive, it has to excel and compete successfully both with multinational competitors in internal as well as international markets. Merger of companies are implicit in free enterprise system because of their obvious advantages infusion of better management and healthy growth of capital market. Thus, the concept of merger has assumed greater significance as offering number of opportunities.
This research study is divided into six chapters. First chapter is on the introduction. The second chapter covers conceptual framework of corporate restructuring. There are considerable changes in accounting aspects relating to merger, accounting standards and legal acts like in Companies Act 1956; FERA1973 has been replaced by FEMA 1999, in MRTP Act etc. This chapter also covers laws relating to merger in UK and USA as well.
Third chapter tells all about the review of literature based on study conducted on this subject and it’s related by numbers of researchers in India and abroad in different countries. Forth chapter is of research methodology. Basically three financial tools like RONW, MVA and EVA are covered along with certain ratios for study. Fifth chapter is about analysis of selected mergers in manufacturing industries at company and industry level. Finally, sixth chapter is all about findings, suggestions and conclusions.

INTRODUCTIONThe main objective of any company is sustainable growth of business to maximize the wealth of its stakeholders. Due to liberalization, privatization and globalization the competition in Indian business market becomes very tough. This leads the necessity for small and medium size companies to reduce competition, expansion of business, modern technologies with less investment. This is possible by way of corporate restructuring in the form of merger, acquisition, takeover, consolidation, reverse merger, demerger etc.
One of the significant objectives of any sovereign is to achieve high rate of economic growth. For achieving this, it keeps reviewing and improving its policies from time to time and introduces various measures, both at micro and macro levels. It also requires various regulatory measures to channelise all economic efforts to achieve its social and economic objectives and to prevent unhealthy practices entering in to its economic system which is detrimental to public welfare.
In pursuance of these objectives, restrictions in India were placed on the corporate sector as per the provisions of various laws and regulations like Monopolistic and Restrictive Trade Practices, Industrial licensing policy etc. The MRTP Act 1969, placed restrictions on the expansion of an enterprise, establishment of new enterprise, division of undertakings, consolidation of undertakings and acquisition and transfer of shares of undertakings in order to check concentration of economic power, control the growth of monopolies and prevent various restrictive trade practices likely to result from operation of economic system. The provision of FERA, 1973 placed restrictions on foreign investments in the country. These restrictions remained in vogue for over two decades and proved incompatible in keeping pace with the global economic developments to achieve the objective of faster economic growth. So, the government had to review its entire policy framework and initiate economic liberalization measures.
Though government began initiating steps towards liberalization in the post 1985 period, the real opining up of the economy started wit the statement on industrial policy made in June 1991. This statement indicated continuity with change, the main thrust being on relaxation in industrial licensing, foreign investments, transfer of foreign technology and
