Petrianidis, Panagiotis (2007) The effects of buy-outs on employment: A dynamic Approach. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Buy-out deals have now become a global phenomenon. From the first deals occurring in the US market in the early 1980s, these transactions have diffused around the world to the UK, continental Europe and the big Asian markets. As the size of the markets and individual deals is getting bigger, the impacts of these transactions are becoming more significant, attracting the attention of the media, regulators, scholars and managers. The effect of these transactions on the employees of target firms is a highly debated issue recently mainly due to the lack of transparency, the tight monitoring and the highly aggressive form of capitalism (Mathiason, 2007) that private equity firms represent. As more and more employees are working for buyout targets - around 850,000 employees in Europe (CMBOR data) -studies of the effects on employment are important.
