Acquisition generally refers to the buying and selling of businesses. A merger is a process whereby a company absorbs another company and remains as its original entity. A consolidation happens when two companies combine and a new business entity is formed. Another deal is to purchase assets only and where the parties have discretion over which assets and liabilities will be transferred.
