- While empirical evidence on M&A is abundant, surprisingly little is known about ‘distress-related’ M&A in comparison to knowledge about healthy firms. This research takes an initial step towards closing the gap by investigating the impact of distressed M&A on acquirer risk and rival firms as well as the impact of M&A by distressed firms.
