The Financial Impact of Corporate Events on Corporate Stakeholders

Synopsis

Garrison explores the impact of corporate events such as mergers, proxy fights, and lawsuits on the price of a company's stocks and, therefore, on the true owners of a corporation--the shareholders. The author evaluates the probable effects of major internal and external corporate events and provides advice on the best investment and corporate strategies to be employed when such situations exist. She also explains the basics of financial markets, describes complicated valuation concepts in clear and jargon-free language, shows how to measure the impact of information, and identifies valuable sources of financial information.
