Bethlehem is an unincorporated community in Henry County, Kentucky, United States. The community's center is the intersection of Kentucky Highways 22 and 573. Bethlehem is best known for its annual Living Nativity, celebrated on December 22-25. The event is a collaborative effort of three local Christian churches (Bethlehem Baptist, Bethlehem Methodist, and Point Pleasant Christian). The Bethlehem post office (ZIP code 40007) offers a special postmark during the Christmas season. Each December, people from many surrounding communities, and occasionally from other states, bring their holiday cards to receive the Bethlehem postmark. In 1996, a segment of the CBS Evening News featured Bethlehem's Christmas traditions.

What is mergers and acquisitions law?

In the law of corporations, a merger is effected when one or more corporations becomes a part of, or merges, with another corporation so that one ceases to exist and the other continues to exist. In a merger, the company that continues to exist retains its name and identity and acquires the assets, liabilities, franchises, and powers of the corporation that ceases to exist. Attorneys who practice in mergers and acquisitions (sometimes called M & A) represent corporations and other business entities in strategizing, negotiating, and carrying out transactions in which two or more companies or corporations combine into a single new entity, a merger, or where one business purchases and absorbs the assets of another, an acquisition.
