Chapter Preview



There are a large number of scientific studies on M&A with target companies in Western industrialised countries. However, the increasing interest in M&A with African target companies is tempered by a lack of studies on the success of such M&A. Therefore, in this work a literature review on this topic is presented; by means of a capital market-based investigation approach, the development of the value of buyer companies after they have announced M&A with African target companies is examined; and the factors that could influence the probability of concluding such M&A are also analysed.


Zu Mergers & Acquisitions mit Zielunternehmen in westlichen Industrieländern existiert eine Vielzahl wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen. Dem zunehmenden Interesse an M&A mit afrikanischen Zielunternehmen steht jedoch ein Mangel an Untersuchungen zum Erfolg solcher M&A gegenüber. Daher wird in dieser Arbeit eine Literaturübersicht zu diesem Thema präsentiert. Im Anschluss wird mittels eines kapitalmarktbasierten Untersuchungsansatzes die Entwicklung des Werts von Käuferunternehmen untersucht, nachdem diese M&A mit afrikanischen Zielunternehmen angekündigt haben. Schließlich wird analysiert, wodurch die Abschlusswahrscheinlichkeit solcher M&A beeinflusst werden könnte.
