Abstract
Mergers and acquisitions on the Swedish market 1997-2009 have created value of approximately 3.5 percent on average measured as abnormal returns. The results are statistically significant. No significance was found for the explanatory regressions and thus we can not find any guidance for managers of when it is preferable to engage in M&A transactions.
