Financing options for financing mergers and acquisitions

For this SLP, think about your SLP company and the possibility of its merging with another company. Write a 2- to 3-page paper answering the following questions:
1) If you were to pick one company for your SLP company to merge with, what would it be? Explain your choice with respect to possible benefits of this merger and why you would choose this company over any other choice for a potential merger.
2) How would you finance a takeover of this chosen corporation? Explain your reasoning.
3) What would your second and third choices be for a merger with your SLP company? Again, explain your reasoning for wanting to merge with these companies, and why they would be second or third choices rather than your first choice.
Remember to make use of the background materials in your analysis as well as additional research. Reference all of your main sources of information and use multiple references in your analysis.
4) What do you perceive you have learned in the Module 5 SLP? Which of the following learning outcomes do you feel you have mastered?
• Explain and discuss financing options for financing mergers and acquisitions.
• Identify success factors in mergers and acquisitions.
Provide a brief evaluation of the Module 5 SLP.
Note: Your report/assignment will not be accepted without proper citations and references. You must use the sources from the background material together with the sources you find on your own. It is also required that you answer all the questions related to learning outcomes.
Assignment Expectations
In the Module 5 SLP, you are expected to:
• Describe the purpose of the paper and provide a conclusion.
• Answer the SLP questions clearly and provide necessary details. Reorganize the paper and delete all the unnecessary information from the previous modules. For example, you have described the purpose of the paper and conclusion in the previous four SLPs. Delete them from the Module 5 SLP. Review "Tips for Good Writing" [https://cdad.trident.edu/CourseHomeModule.aspx?course=56&term=92&module=3&page=custom1] and a guideline to write a well-structured paper.
• Write clearly and correctly—that is, no poor sentence structure, no spelling and grammar mistakes, and no run-on sentences.
• Provide citations to support your argument and references on a separate page. Use APA format to provide citations and references [http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/].
• Answer all the SLP questions in an essay format. Do not type questions in the paper.
• Type and double-space the paper.

>Precision: Does the paper address the question(s) or task(s)?
>Breadth: Is the full breadth of the subject addressed?
>Depth: Does the paper/report address all elements of the topic in sufficient depth? Does it include and apply the background reading and other background resources? Are they included as references?
>Critical thinking: Are the concepts of this module applied accurately, logically, and relevantly?
>Organization: Is the paper organized in a coherent and systematic manner? Are headings included in all papers longer than two pages?
>Clarity: Is the writing clear and are the concepts articulated properly? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of response to the questions, or are thoughts conveyed through excessive use of quotations?
