Vertical Merger

A vertical merger occurs when two firms from different stages of the same industry, activity, or operation enter into a merger agreement. These types of private companies typically have buyer-seller or supply chain relationships before the merger. Generally, private companies attempt vertical mergers or hostile takeovers of other firms to maximize backward or forward integration along their supply chain. The acquiring private company reaps the benefits of a reduced inventory and more efficient allocation working capital.
