Adam Smith's Reasons
Conglomerate is a combination of two or more corporations engaged in entirely different businesses that fall under one corporate group. Often, a conglomerate is a multi-industry company. Conglomerates are often large and multinational.
A business pool is a union of different companies in the same or similar arena of business. The main aim behind such ‘coming together’ is to limit competition among themselves in such a way that each company gets the maximum profits.
A trust company is a corporation, especially a commercial bank, organized to perform the fiduciary of trusts and agencies. It is normally owned by one of three types of structures: an independent partnership, a bank, or a law firm, each of which specializes in being a trustee of various kinds of trusts and in managing estates. It is safe to say that the term "trust company" must not be narrowly construed.
Holding Company
A holding company is a company or firm that owns other companies' outstanding stock. The term usually refers to a company that does not produce goods or services itself; rather, its purpose is to own shares of other companies. Holding companies allow the reduction of risk for the owners and can allow the ownership and control of a number of different companies.
Vertical Integration
The term vertical integration describes a style of growth and management control. Vertically integrated companies in a supply chain are united through a common owner. Usually each member of the supply chain produces a different product or (market-specific) service, and the products combine to satisfy a common need.
Horizontal Integration
The merger of companies at the same stage of production in the same or different industries. When the products of both companies are similar, it is a merger of competitors. When all producers of a good or service in a market merge, it is the creation of a monopoly. If only a few competitors remain, it is termed an oligopoly. Also called lateral integration.
