Part of the Schriften zum europäischen Management book series (SEM)

The investigation of the relationship between deal activity and returns has two main objectives. First, it serves as a robustness check for the driver analysis. As outlined in Figure 10, each of the competing theoretical viewpoints predicts a positive or negative activity-return relationship.
