Many organizations find themselves open to a hostile takeover bid and this book, with a comprehensive case study approach, offers an understanding of what can happen, why and how to manoeuvre from under a hostile takeover. "Hostile Takeovers" presents a case study analysis of this make or break issue, disclosing the strategies and outcomes of over 40 hostile takeovers. Through these cases, the authors offer both guidance and specific takeover strategies and how to overcome them. They also draw out general conclusions - bringing new ideas on, for example, how takeovers can affect the long-term success of an organization. The text looks at takeover bids on Bassett Foods, Marina Developments and Piccadilly Radio, among others.
