9780875843391: Corporate Restructuring: Managing the Change Process from Within

"Corporate Restructuring" examines the impact of financial restructuring on corporate priorities and performance. Countering the notion that an actual or threatened hostile takeover is needed to induce managers to restructure their firms, Donaldson claims that many companies have successfully restructured voluntarily. Drawing on a series of field studies and close examinations of three companies - General Mills, Burlington Northern, and CPC International - Donaldson shows how firms have implemented radical change through an internal discipline. The factual evidence demonstrates why and how voluntary restructuring works just as well - indeed better - than hostile takeovers, without the trauma of external intervention and disruption to day-to-day operations. Challenging many assumptions of current financial literature on how firms achieve increased efficiency, this book is bound to provoke controversy.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the 1980s, the business world saw a number of gargantuan mergers and acquisitions featuring "white knights," convoluted "poison pill" and "PAC-Man" defenses and "barbarians at the gates" that transformed business. Donaldson ( Strategy of Financial Mobility ) meticulously explores resultant restructuring in this superb study. The author, an emeritus professor at Harvard Business School, views the last decade's changes in corporate restructuring in the context of the "evolution of financial strategy and structure since World War II." He examines the economic structure of the 1970s and 1980s, investor discontent, voluntary and involuntary corporate restructuring, board revolts and fundamental changes in managerial operations. Donaldson's extensive use of statistical data, case studies (General Mills, Burlington Northern and CPC International) offers a useful framework for his consideration of implications for corporations of the '90s
