Strategic Corporate Finance
The aim of the research is to investigate the short-term and long-term value effect of M&A deals on the acquiring companies from emerging and developed capital markets and reveal significant determinants. The sample consists of 126 M&A deals initiated by firms from developed capital markets and 103 deals from emerging market over 2002 – 2013. On the basis of event-study and value-based approach, we point out that mergers and acquisitions, initiated by bidder from developed markets, increase the value of acquiring company in short-term and long-term period. As for emerging capital market – M&A deals on average destroy bidder value after announcement and negative impact on long-term fundamental value.
