2.  For the corporation that has not been involved in any mergers or acquisitions, identify one (1) 

company that would be a profitable candidate for the corporation to acquire or merge with and 

explain why this company would be a profitable target. 

3.  For the corporation that operates internationally, briefly evaluate its international business-level 

strategy and international corporate-level strategy and make recommendations for improvement. 

4.  For the corporation that does not operate internationally, propose one business-level strategy and
