Mergers, acquisitions, and other types of business combinations are a common strategy among companies to grow their businesses or diversify their risk. Entering into business combinations can help companies reach new geographic markets, expand product offerings, or achieve various synergies. Business combinations offer a number of benefits to the parties involved, but the initial accounting for the business combination can be complicated and often requires extensive time and effort.
