ABSTRACT
The article highlights the difficulties associated with the decision to make a corporate acquisition. It is one of the most complex and risk-laden undertakings that financial executives encounter in their careers. Even assuming the strategic soundness of a decision to make an acquisition, there are still many factors involving valuation of the target, which, if not examined in depth, can render the decision a disaster. One of these factors is the pension plan of the target company. While financial executives are well aware of the significance of pension plan costs in their own firms, there is often less familiarity with the details and implications of the target firm's pension plan.
