    Examples :

    1. Company A has been acquired by Company B.
    2. Company A has been merged with Company B.

    From the Employees perspective who are working in Company A, which among the two i.e. Acquisition OR Merger could be more risk prone from Job security point of view ?.


    Can there be scenarios where mergers or acquisitions can take place between more than
    two companies ?.

    i.e. n > 2 where n = Company / Organisation / Corporate / Firm.

    Example : n = 3

    1. Company A is merged with Company B and Company C.

    Company A is the Parent Co.
    Companies B & C are Secondary Cos.

    2. Company A acquires Company B and Company C.

    Company A is the Parent Co.
    Companies B & C are Secondary Cos.

    In reality, Can this business transaction/s take place (n>2) ?.

    i.e. 1 or 2 can also happen ?.


    Mergers and Acquisitions will always hold true for the equation n=2.

    The following mentioned below are just hypothetical examples.

    The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ-HSBC Bank plc

    The above examples can be possible but maybe not practical because it may lead to Business Risks, Business Transactions Complexities ?.

    Thanks & Regards,

    It is difficult to say because SO much depends on the terms of the Acquisition or Merger. I’ve worked for subsidiaries that, as far as personnel goes, were virtually unaffected by major changes of the parent companies. A major transformation is however, often followed by evaluations where the preverbal “fat is trimmed” but if you have a good record and an iatrical position I wouldn’t be too concerned.
