You are part of a company who has made the strategic decision to acquire another company. There are two possible implementation strategies for this decision;A. Merge the acquired company into your company. The result of this strategy will be one company containing the elements of both companies.;1. What are the pros and cons of this implementation strategy?;2. How will you know if the strategy is working?;B. Operate the acquired company as a separate business entity. The result of this strategy will be two separate companies under one senior management ?umbrella? (the senior management team that is responsible for running both companies).;1. What are the pros and cons of this implementation strategy?;2. How will you know if the strategy is working?;Be sure to cite all references in APA format.;There will be an inter-group debate for the unit 4 DB. Odd-numbered groups will argue for Mergers, even-numbered groups will argue for Acquisitions. Each student should research both methods for obtaining another firm. Knowledge of the advantages and disadvantages of each method provides a better basis for comparison and debate. All students will post their answer to the unit 4 DB as normal and write their group's number (Group 1, Group 4, etc.) when they write their responses and comments. Comments can be directed toward refuting the comments of members of opposing groups, or used to sustain the comments by members of supporting groups in an effort to generate a debate on the values of each method.;Deliverable Length: There is no set deliverable length for this assignment. As a graduate business student, it is a requirement to provide a well-researched and analyzed comprehensive response to every assignment question. Brief, vague, generic, or non-definitive responses will not earn good grades.
