Mergers and Acquisitions: A study of the performance of North American oil and gas firms
Smith, John (2015) Mergers and Acquisitions: A study of the performance of North American oil and gas firms. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
Employing a quantitative approach, this dissertation contributes to the theories on the performance of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) of international oil and gas (O&G) companies. The study uses both an event study and accounting based methodology to assess both the short and long term impact of the announcement of a merger or acquisition on the acquiring firm. The study focuses on North American firms between 1998 and 2002, a period during which a major consolidation of the O&G sector occurred.
