In light of the position of the United States as the single most important target country for cross-border mergers and acquisitions by German companies during the fifth merger wave, the goals of this study were to (i) detect special aspects that impact the structure and management of a U.S. cross-border transaction, (ii) evaluate from the perspective of the acquirer’s shareholders and management how German companies succeeded in the U.S. environment, and (iii) identify potential determinants of cross-border transaction success. This summary condenses the conclusions and implications with regard to these goals discussed at the end of Chapters 3 and 5.
