Omer Faruk GENÇ, Burak KALKAN

Özet


This study analyses acquisitions that Turkish companies are involved between 1990-2017 by analyzing trends in number and volume of activity, geographic dispersion of foreign acquirers and targets, deal characteristics. We also group acquisitions into three according to the home country of acquirers and targets and compare. As being the first study to analyze all three groups at the same time and having the most comprehensive sample in terms of period, this study contributes to the literature by providing a detailed and comprehensive understanding of Turkish M&As. We finally discuss implications for firms and policymakers while providing insights for future research.
