Abstract

Our study is focused on the premium paid for an acquisition of a target company, especially on the Nasdaq market. We find that the relative size of the companies, the strategy of international diversification and the mean of payment influence the premium. There is no effect of maket timing on the premuim paid and the ownership structure of the group of directors doesn’t seem to be significant.

Keywords: Corporate Governance, Ownership Structure, Premium Paid
