Abstract
Study on value creation for acquiring companies in Sweden in the years 2002-2009. The study is carried out by using both event- and accounting study methodology and the value creation is studied in short, medium and long-term. We find significant positive average abnormal returns of 2.82% at the announcement, which is steady until 5 days post the announcement. We find no significant abnormal changes in operational performance but the there is a tendency of improvements in all ratios used in the thesis.
