Pfizer, Astra-Zeneca, and corporate inversions

I was in China for the past few weeks, where (and various other Google sites) are blocked, but I did write an answer in* about the tax implications of the proposed Pfizer-Astra-Zeneca merger (now scuttled). 

Pfizer reportedly wants to acquire AstraZeneca to reincorporate overseas to pay a low tax rate. How does that work? Why does the company have to acquire AstraZeneca to do it?

* is a questions-and-answers site started by one of my classmates from the California Institute of Technology.
