Enty's Business Glossary:

Merger

Merger is a business situation when several companies decide to become parts of a bigger one by the creation of a new legal entity.

Don’t confuse mergers with acquisitions and takeovers even though they have similar meanings. While acquisition implies unforced buy-out by mutual consent, takeover means that a company resists its purchase by another company.
