This volume of research provides a deeper understanding of equity markets in Europe. European Equity Markets and Corporate Financial Decisions explores the current nature of corporate decisions faced by European financial managers, the highly interdependent financial and economic environment in which they function, and how that environment seeks complete integration with other financial and economic environments.

The contributing authors provide a timely core of theoretical and empirical investigations on a set of European equity markets and corporate financial management decisions such as the behavior of European stock markets, microstructure characteristics of European equity markets, investment banking decisions and market valuation effects, earnings, and divided policy decisions and European acquisition effects. This research is expected to provide new insights into the functioning of European equity markets and European corporate management decisions.

Topics of specific interest include:

  • stock return variation and expected dividends
  • foreign acquisitions of European firms
  • effects of European partial acquisitions of U.S. firms
  • investment banking issues
