A merger is defined as the blending of two organizations into one company. Also known as a consolidation, the two businesses combine and form a new enterprise and neither company can remain independent after merging. There are two types of mergers: vertical and horizontal. Horizontal mergers are not financially motivated, but instead focus on reducing competition within a competitive market. Vertical mergers occur between two companies when one company buys or sells something from the other. The laws surrounding these two types of mergers exist to protect both organizations and ensure they each are satisfied with the outcome.
