> finexpert-Value Trust Takeover Report March 2017

The finexpert-ValueTrust German takeover report 2017 covers all takeover bids according to the German takeover code WpÜG of the year 2016 and provides extensive information on relevant variables like bid types, premia offered, market reaction of target’s and (if available) on bidder’s stock prices. In addition our extensive database allows to compare last year´s  yxfigures of these variables against the moving average of the preceding years and thus to highlight trends and long term developments. Finally the finexpert German takeover report contains a unique and extensive analysis of fairness opinions and statements of management and supervisory board of the target company (§27 WpÜG), allowing for a detailed analysis of the relationship of these factors upon target stock price reaction and success rates of the takeover bid.
Our results indicate 2016 as a year with an average number of offers, but with above average premia and bid volume. The latter is due to the extraordinary merger attempt of Deutsche Börse and London Stock Exchange. Market reaction on the offer announcements was on average 20.8% on the targets (-+1 day-CAR). Our Fairness Opinion analysis reveals an increasing importance of consultants as providers.
