dc.description.abstract This paper firstly estimates the abnormal returns from merger and acquisition activities. To obtain the abnormal returns, I used the S&P500, which is considered as market return, and firm returns to calculate the normal returns. The excess returns can be regarded as abnormal returns. Secondly, I performed a regression analysis to test the relationship between abnormal returns and explanatory factors. This paper examines these relationships and provides suggestions to companies which would participate in merger and acquisition activities. en_CA
