marketing and management

the assumption or enterprise assumption, how we know it today not least from world-wide competitions, is pretty often one „hostile takeover “, thus the acquisition of the majority participation to, usually large enterprises against the will of the management. Hostile takeovers serve often only to put over the competitor lamely and if necessary. also in order its substance with profit to repel to be able (= ' ate Stripping' as motive for arbitragethe “Raider theory”). „A weighty argument for ‚friendly `assumptions (thus the acquisition of the majority participation with approval of the management) is the increasing obligation to the size due to the globalization. “ (Pure hard of Normann into „the small restaurant encyclopedia “)

around a hostile takeover to prevent, various possibilities stand for the enterprise concernedopenly: On the one hand the possibility exists of spending with the stock exchange course the shares as registered shares which is substantially blocked however the trade and usually only accomplished thus, if it is compellingly necessary for the stock exchange quotation. The second possibility would be, that for the defense of the hostile takeoverto make available and to the own shareholders an offer submit necessary capital, which arranges it not to sell to the competitor.

With respect to the German terminology one differentiates thus fusions, with which both an economical, and a legal combination of the involved ones take place.
