Corporate acquisitions have been a prevailing technique for takeovers in the U.S. and internationally for many years. However, corporate acquisitions are just in their initial stages in Taiwan. Acquisitions between Taiwanese companies have not occurred frequently and going abroad to acquire a company in a foreign country is an infrequent measure. Following the international trend to acquire U.S. corporations, Taiwanese companies are attempting to follow suit. The major purpose of this thesis is to introduce the techniques used in the acquisition of a U.S. corporation and the factors that should be considered before doing so with a focus on Taiwanese acquirers. This thesis integrates both a legal and economic analysis.
