The easiest way I can think of to describe a merger is equate it to a recipe. In cooking, when you want to merge two ingredients you mix them. In business it is the same way. You take two businesses and mix them together in to one, larger business. Sometimes, like mixing oil and water, it doesn't work real well. When that happens the business leader has to come up with a solution. It may be the need for a third party. It might mean parts may need to separated. On the other hand, sometimes, like mixing milk and an egg the result is magic. Frankly, without a great deal of study and hard work, merging two companies can be a crap shoot.
