Assignment 4: Merger, Acquisition, and International Strategies 
Due Week 8 and worth 300 points 
Choose two (2) public corporations in an industry with which you
are familiar – one (1) that has acquired another company and
operates internationally and one (1) that does not have a history
of mergers and acquisitions and operates solely within the U.S.
Research each company on its own Website, the public filings on the
Securities and Exchange Commission EDGAR database
(http://www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml), in the University's online
databases, and any other sources you can find. The annual report
will often provide insights that can help address some of these
questions. 
Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you: 
1. For the corporation that has acquired another company, merged
with another company, or been acquired by another company, evaluate
the strategy that led to the merger or acquisition to determine
whether or not this merger or acquisition was a wise choice.
Justify your opinion. 
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 one corporate-level
strategy that you would suggest the corporation consider. Justify
your proposals. 
5. Use at least three (3) quality references. Note: Wikipedia and
other Websites do not quality as academic resources.

required page length. 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this
