A friend of mine who was interviewing for a investment banking summer analyst position with a top-tier bulge bracket investment bank (in Hong Kong) got completely shattered by this unexpected question, "How do you structure an M&A/IPO deal?" After days of discussions we still could not find a plausible answer to this question.

Would really appreciate if anyone on the forum can share any idea on this one.
