An acquisition takes place when one company completely buys out another company, and the former company remains. Examples include: - investment firm buys all the stock of a public company (Blackstone Group buys Harrah's Entertainment) - company buys another company (Wachovia buys First Union) If the two companies join together to become a new company, it is then considered a merger (Arcelor and Mittal Steel merge and become ArcelorMittal).
