Bower (2001) identified five different kinds of mergers: the over capacity M&A, the Geographic roll-up M&A, the product or market extension M&A, the M&A as R&D and the industry convergence M&A.

The fall of the hammer in a traditional auction is complete when the auctioneer announces its completion by the fall of the hammer or in other customary manner-and until any such announcement is made any bidder may retract his or her bid. The equivalent of the fall of the hammer in an eBay auction is the automatic close of bidding at a fixed time and the generation of an eBay advice headed "won" appear to have been accepted by the parties to an eBay auction.
