Title: INTERNATIONAL ACQUISITIONS BY INDIAN FIRMS - SYNERGY, MANAGERIALISM OR HUBRIS?
Creators: Singh, Suresh

Issue Date: 2009-04
Abstract: Emerging economy firms are increasingly acquiring foreign firms, either buoyed by success at home or as a response to competitive threats from foreign players entering their home markets. These firms are new to the game and it remains to be seen if they have been able to secure gains for their shareholders in the process. This study analyzed international acquisitions by Indian firms and found that shareholder gains are positive overall. However, larger firm size tends to have a negative impact on shareholder returns suggesting that bigger firms may be prone to hubris. Managerialism was not found to be a significant.
