  • Board involvement in the M&A negotiation process

    Gül Demirtaş  

    Abstract This paper examines whether the active engagement of target firm directors in the sale process affects merger outcomes. Using data manually extracted from merger-related SEC filings, I create two measures of target board involvement in merger negotiations: the number of days it takes for the board to meet after the beginning of the sale process and the number of board meetings held throughout the entire process. I find that early board involvement in merger talks increases target shareholder returns and premiums, especially when shareholders have weak control over their firms and are thus in greater need of board protection. Although the two measures of target board activity do not affect acquirer cumulative abnormal returns or the likelihood of competition, such activity does reduce the likelihood of an excessive target termination fee. Robustness analyses dismiss an alternative explanation whereby attractive initial bids lead to both early board involvement and attractive final bids.

  • Reassessing M&A Valuation Assumptions

    Pandian, J. Rajendran   Woodlock, Pete  

    The current economic environment has obviously created uncertainty. That uncertainty has caused many companies to focus on preserving capital. So many merger and acquisition (M'A) professionals are scratching their heads and questioning some of the fundamental assumptions that have historically driven business valuations.

  • The M/M/1 queue with a production-inventory system and lost sales

    Jung Woo Baek   Seung Ki Moon  

    Abstract In this paper, we study an M/M/1 queue with an attached production-inventory system. Customers arrive in the system according to a Poisson process, and a single server serves the customers. The service times are assumed to be i.i.d. exponential random variables. The customers leave the system with exactly one item from the inventory at his service completion epoch. If there is no inventory item, all arriving customers are lost. The stocks are replenished by (1) an external order under ( r , Q ) -policy, or (2) an internal production. The internal production process is assumed to be a Poisson process. We first derive the stationary joint distribution of the queue length and the on-hand inventory in product form. Using the joint distribution, we introduce long-run performance measures and a cost model. Then, we show numerical examples, which minimize the long-run cost per unit time.
