Global takeover premiums - country vs. industry impact

Applied Financial Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 4, issue 4, 293-297

Abstract: We analyse the country and industry impact on takeover premiums in Germany, France, the USA and the UK. We find that the level of takeover premiums is highly country specific. The industry only plays a minor role with the exception of the financial sector. Germany and France, both countries exhibit significantly lower premiums than the Anglo-Saxon countries. In Germany, these lower premiums are mainly driven by foreign bidders, in France the opposite holds true.
