    Abstract

    The aim of this paper is to consider the short-run performance of UK firms acquiring foreign target firms over a period of 1994-2003 and to explore the impact of deal size and other firm-specific factors on performance. Cross-border mergers and acquisitions have witnessed a substantial growth worldwide, with the UK being one of the top acquiring nations in the global market for corporate control.
