The study is aimed at the assessment of the effect of mergers and acquisitions on the fundamental value of acquiring companies in BRICS countries. The approach based on the residual income model was applied. The pre-acquisition expected fundamental value of the acquiring company and its realized post-acquisition fundamental value are compared.
The study is fulfilled on the sample of 366 M&A deals in BRICS countries, collected from Zephyr, Bloomberg and Thompson Reuters databases. Econometric modeling is applied to reveal factors causing the value creation or destruction among which there were the company’s size, the mode of deal funding, the industrial specifics and the method of payment.
