Definition: is a transaction, a process, in which two or more businesses merge together. There are various types of business combinations, each of which differs in terms of management methods and organizational processes. For instance, some business combinations involve two companies that reach a mutual agreement to merge (combine) all of their assets, functions, operations, officers, and structures into one with an aim to be mutually beneficial under a single ownership. Other business combinations imply strictly the exchange of stocks between two (or more) companies. One of the most prevalent business combinations typically involves one company gaining control over the other one (or at least controls its interests).
