Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) has, like many areas of speciality, a lexicon all of its own. The JWS Private Treaty M&A dictionary provides clear and simple definitions of many commonly used terms in unregulated sale and purchase transactions in Australia and is a useful resource for anyone involved in an M&A transaction, from experienced deal makers to those embarking on their first deal.
