The article discusses the sale of business enterprises with particular focus on Tyco International Ltd. Dennis Kozlowski, chairman and chief executive officer. Kozlowski revealed in an interview that Tyco keeps a list of 30 companies that it is considering acquiring which demonstrates that merger and acquisition (M&A) deals are not products of circumstance and fortune but corporate strategies to achieve a certain goal for the company. Companies wishing to sell are more effective when preparing a strategy in which they compare possible buyers and the advantages of certain partnerships.
