Event Studies Assessments

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements


Kindly please find the requirements for the assessment and be aware that I would like the structure for this assignment will be the same as a file attached called (merger paper) and the language should be written in UK English as well as all references and information will be in files attached .

You are required to design and carry out an event study that analyses the impact that the announcement of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) has on the share prices of acquirer and target companies. You will find the relevant M&A data using Thomson Banker(Details in files attached,how to access as well as username and password).
Your aim is to analyse the impact of an M&A announcement on acquiring and target firms separately, thus allowing you to compare the impact of M&A announcements on acquiring vs target firms. The announcement dates should be restricted to 1st January 2014 to 31st December 2014.
You will need to read a synopsis of previous literature examining share price reaction around M&A to fully understand how to set up your hypotheses and methods of enquiry and should discuss the literature briefly in your report. (Links to relevant papers will be in files attached).
You need to find announcement data for 50 acquiring firms, and for 50 target firms (100 in total). It should select target and acquiring firms from the same country i.e. UK.
You will need to conduct two separate searches for the M&A data on Thomson, one for acquiring firms, and the second for target firms. You then need to gather the share price data for your observations, along with the closing prices for an appropriate stock index, i.e. for the UK it can be the FTSE all-share index, or for the USA the S&P 500 index.
