Horizons of target managers and acquisition financing

by Snover, Tyler James

Abstract

Mergers and acquisitions create situations where target CEOs may not act in the best interest of the shareholders. Further, the type of financing used in these acquisitions skew incentives in differing ways and may depend on market conditions. Using quantitative analysis this paper explores the relationship between managerial horizons of target firms and acquisition payment methods. Specifically, it is anticipated that more stock use coincides with shorter managerial decision-making horizons of target firms.
