Question 17

Which of the following statements is most CORRECT?


Answer

Tax considerations often play a part in mergers. If one firm has excess cash, purchasing another firm exposes the purchasing firm to additional taxes. Thus, firms with excess cash rarely undertake mergers.

The smaller the synergistic benefits of a particular merger, the greater the scope for striking a bargain in negotiations, and the higher the probability that the merger will be completed.

Since mergers are frequently financed by debt rather than equity, a lower cost of debt or a greater debt capacity are rarely relevant considerations when considering a merger.

Managers who purchase other firms often assert that the new combined firm will enjoy benefits from diversification, including more stable earnings. However, since shareholders are free to diversify their own holdings, and at what’s probably a lower cost, diversification benefits is generally not a valid motive for a publicly held firm.

All of the answers above are correct.


3 points
Question 18

Which of the following statements is most CORRECT?


Answer

A conglomerate merger is one where a firm combines with another firm in the same industry.

Regulations in the United States prohibit acquiring firms from using common stock to purchase another firm.

Defensive mergers are designed to make a company less vulnerable to a takeover.

Answers a and b are correct.

All of the answers above are correct.



3 points
Question 19

Which of the following statements is most CORRECT?


Answer

Our bankruptcy laws were enacted in the 1800s, revised in the 1930s, and have remained unaltered since that time.

Federal bankruptcy law deals only with corporate bankruptcies. Municipal and personal bankruptcy are governed solely by state laws.

All bankruptcy petitions are filed by creditors seeking to protect their claims against firms in financial distress. Thus, all bankruptcy petitions are involuntary as viewed from the perspective of the firm's management.

Chapters 11 and 7 are the most important bankruptcy chapters for financial management purposes. If a reorganization plan cannot be worked out under Chapter 11, then the company will be liquidated as prescribed in Chapter 7 of the Act.

"Restructuring" a firm's debt can involve forgiving a certain portion of the debt, but it cannot call for changing the debt's maturity or its contractual interest rate.
