Area of Research: Finance
I will be focusing my research on understanding the impact of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) on the rivals of those involved in the transaction. With the majority of studies in the M&A field conducted based on the bidder, the target, or both, little emphasis has been placed on the effect of a transaction on the competitors’ stock price, more specifically.
Therefore, I would like to pursue this research issue whilst identifying potential similarities and differences in factors such as transaction size, firm size, industry, and country of operations.
