Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the 1980s, the business world saw a number of gargantuan mergers and acquisitions featuring "white knights," convoluted "poison pill" and "PAC-Man" defenses and "barbarians at the gates" that transformed business. Donaldson ( Strategy of Financial Mobility ) meticulously explores resultant restructuring in this superb study. The author, an emeritus professor at Harvard Business School, views the last decade's changes in corporate restructuring in the context of the "evolution of financial strategy and structure since World War II." He examines the economic structure of the 1970s and 1980s, investor discontent, voluntary and involuntary corporate restructuring, board revolts and fundamental changes in managerial operations. Donaldson's extensive use of statistical data, case studies (General Mills, Burlington Northern and CPC International) offers a useful framework for his consideration of implications for corporations of the '90s

By Ibrahim Khalil on April 14, 2000
Format: Hardcover
When we were studying corporate finance and policy, our teachers use to recommend us Gordon's articles and books; they called him father of finance. His articles were true classics; even after passage of few decades they remain as applicable as they were then.
Same is with this book. It dispels the myth that restructuring can only be from outside by giving you live examples. I would recommend it to anyone who is at the top seat or eyeing that position. Whether he/she is leading a successful organization or trying to turnaround a deteriorating bottom line, this is the book for him/her.
