I assume that you have in mind Acquisition. Acquisition means purchase by one company of all or some of the other company's shares. The purchase of more than 50% of the stock and other assets enables the buyer to make decisions about the company without the approval of the company's shareholders. This is to take control of the company's strengths and use them to achieve synergies. There are several types of economic mergers: acquisitions where both companies survive, mergers where only one company survives, and mergers where neither company survives.

An acquisition is when one company buys another company. It usually involves buying a majority stake in the company to gain control over its operations and assets. This can help the buying company expand its market presence, increase its customer base, or acquire new technologies or intellectual property.
