Praise for Mergers & Acquisitions: A Condensed Practitioner's Guide
"On a subject that encompasses so many possibilities, Steven Bragg's Mergers and Acquisitions is an excellent and comprehensive practical review of the myriad issues that can arise. Amidst the emotion of the M&A roller coaster that so many managers find themselves on in these fast-moving times, this guide provides an excellent and comprehensive aid for managers to ensure that the deal does not just get done but gets done effectively and efficiently. An invaluable addition to the armory of any manager considering or actually working on a merger or acquisition."
--James Dunning, founder and Managing Director, Geotrupes Consulting
"Mr. Bragg offers a unique combination of accounting expertise and insight into the merger and acquisition process. The comprehensive, yet practical, nature of the material obviously comes from having been in the trenches and participated as the Chief Financial Officer in both mergers and acquisitions. This is an excellent guide for the first-time acquirer as well as a tool for the experienced CFO to ensure a smooth and comprehensive process. Mr. Bragg has written an excellent reference book, which will be useful before and during your acquisition process."
--Richard V. Souders, President & CEO, Kaba Workforce Solutions
"Mergers and Acquisitions: A Condensed Practitioner's Guide is beyond any ready-reckoned reference book. The treatment of each topic by Mr. Bragg compiles a thought checklist against a mere action checklist for any practitioner. The term 'Condensed' in the title is a misnomer as the treatment is exhaustive and relevant!"
--K V Ramesh, Chairman & Managing Director, ECHC Management Services Private Limited, Chenna
"Successful transactions are a result of an enduring desire for two worlds to meet as one. This is a daunting task for all participants, and Steven Bragg identifies a road map of processes and procedures that anyone considering a divesture or entering the M&A space should call 'the handbook of M&A.'
