Governance and the Market for Corporate Controlis a textbook for use on business courses dealing with mergers, acquisitions, governance restructuring and corporate control.

Three key features distinguish this book from competing texts. First, following up on recent developments in the corporate arena, it places a heavy emphasis on managerial compensation, incentives and corporate performance. Second, its conciseness allows for flexibility of use. Third, its coverage is broad and examines many topics including:

  • significant discussions of corporate governance
  • power and voting
  • managerial compensation
  • takeovers
  • going private transactions
  • corporate restructuring
  • event study methodology.

As well as combining theoretical, empirical, quantitative and practitioner-oriented matter, the material in this key book provides the academic foundation necessary to ensure students' understanding of important concepts.

John L. Teallis Professor of Finance at Pace University. A former member of the American Stock Exchange, Dr. Teall has lectured in universities around the world.

Editorial Reviews

'Dr. Teall has done an admirable job distilling the essential concepts, problems and theories of corporate control into a single concise and accessible volume. Topics in this well organized text range from the theory of the firm and corporate acquisitions to power, voting, abuses and excesses of managerial entrenchment and compensation policy. Theories and models are explained clearly in this book, as are empirical and computational methodologies. Discussions on the economic impacts of M&A activity, compensation policy and organizational structures are fascinating and important reading material for business, law and economics students at all levels.'
