    Companies merge with or acquire other companies for a host of reasons, including:
    Increase Supply-Chain Pricing Power
    Eliminate Competition
    By combining business activities, overall performance efficiency tends to increase and across-the-board costs tend to drop, due to the fact that each company leverages off of the other company’s strengths. Mergers can give the acquiring company an opportunity to grow market share without doing significant heavy lifting. By buying out one of its suppliers or distributors, a business can eliminate an entire tier of costs. Many M&A deals allow the acquirer to eliminate future competition and gain a larger market share.
