Mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring and corporate ownership controls are a big part of the corporate finance world. Every day, investment bankers arrange M&A transactions, which bring separate companies together to form larger ones.
The aim of this special issue is to attempt to cover all issues of Corporate Governance, namely mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring and ownership, control and governance around the world.
Papers are expected to address issues regarding motives and reasons for mergers, benefits and costs of mergers, the mechanics of a merger and how mergers affect the economy. In the issue of corporate restructuring interesting topics may include leveraged buyouts and/or management buyouts, spin-offs and curve-outs, conglomerates and the issue of bankruptcy. Finally, the role of ownership control and structure on the effectiveness and profitability of the firm is clearly an issue that demands further exploration in empirical finance.
