Author: Dutta, Soumitra ; Bonissone, Piero P.INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 89/65/TM/FIN/AC Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1989.Language: EnglishDescription: 40 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: Mergers and acquisitions (MandA) are currently revolutionizing the structure of corporate USA and annually involve deals totalling billions of dollars. Consequently, it is an area of intense activity and interest within the financial community. The process of planning a MandA is enormously complex and involves sophisticated reasoning and planning, by several parties such as the raider, the target company, investment banks, etc. Computer-based tools are often invaluable for planning several stages of a MandA, such as generating forecasted cash flows. Current computer aids for MandA however do not provide adequate support for many essential features such as real time planning, reasoning under uncertainty, non-monotonic inference, case-based reasoning, etc. MARS is a prototype MandA reasoning tool developed at general Electric Corporate RandD that attempts to provide such features in an integrated environment. MARS both simulates and provides advice regarding the complex reasoning and planning involved in a MandA deal.
