Abstract

We discuss the usefulness of signaling as a complementary theory to help understand various aspects of M&A. Beyond reviewing some of the research in this area to provide examples of contributions, we also intend to provide a critique of existing applications of signaling theory to identify gaps in this research stream in order to locate potential research opportunities.

Keywords: signaling, acquisitions
