Title: Takeover (Wiley Investment (Hardcover))

ISBN : 0471492221
Author : Peter Waine Mike Walker Joseph Samson
Publisher : John Wiley and Sons Ltd
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX31-U31-24A-RES-57685


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

This fictionalized account of a takeover attempt works because scriptwriter Walker is a skillful storyteller and because veteran business executive Waine understands how business works. They follow the financial schemes of a colorful but self-absorbed entrepreneur who heads a successful electronics conglomerate and has his eyes on a much smaller family-run enterprise consisting of several ripe-for-picking, strategically mismatched businesses. Set in England, the narrative begins a month before the hostile buyout bid is tendered and then follows developments as things get messy. Waine is a director and cofounder of a British company that helps place up-and-coming executives in directorships at smaller companies in different industry sectors. Waine's mission is to reinvigorate these smaller companies by bringing in new perspectives, and he uses Takeover to show what can happen when company boards are ineffectual. The authors successfully let the story explain the business concepts involved; one need not even be too familiar with business terminology. On the other hand, it is not likely that this story will appeal to those who have no fascination for business transactions. David RouseCopyright American Library Association. All rights reservedTakeover is a suprisingly racy book. All this proceeds at a terrific rate of knots, with a neat extra twist as the deal is done - larger than life, perhaps, but well researched and wit a keen eye for the shifts and tremors of business life..it is highly entertaining stuff: well-informed, tongue-in-cheek and a great deal more interesting than the piles of financial thrillers stacked up in the average airport bookstall.--Sunday Times, 18th June 2000
