ABSTRACT
The article deals with issues concerning merger of equals. A study by Paul Weiss that examined the top 25 strategic transactions from August 2007 to July 2008 and August 2008 to July 2009 has identified that there was not a single deal in the samples used that was billed as a merger of equals. Ariel Deckelbaum of Paul Weiss also hypothesized that it is difficult in any environment to do a merger of equals. It cites the merger between Daimler and Chrysler as a notable example of a merger of equals.
