Recent M&A pieces.

Just a small list of articles related to M&A that I have read recently
  • An interesting piece on cross-border mergers and how most fail due to cultural differences - in Strategy + Business. I am waiting to see a study on how the recent spate of European cross-border bank mergers fare.
  • A WSJ piece on GE's latest (and expensive!) acquisition spree.
  • A Worth feature that had one of the most detailed analysis of mergers.

The latest Barron's (or was it IBD ?) had one money manager taking a different line on what companies will do with all the cash they have piled up over the last 4 years. He sees companies not doing much with the cash but keep adding to the pile! Not something I would like to see happen.
