This study investigates the relationship existing between cross-border M&A and impairment losses (IL) subsequently recognized against goodwill as an accounting measure of M&A failure. The study contributes to the literature on M&A failures providing preliminary evidence on companies more involved in cross-border M&A being more subject to goodwill IL. The study also contributes to accounting literature as it builds a preliminary bridge between managerial strategic decisions on M&A and their effects on companies performance measured by a value relevant income component (i.e., goodwill IL).

Abstract

This study investigates the relationship existing between cross-border M&A and impairment losses (IL) subsequently recognized against goodwill as an accounting measure of M&A failure. The study contributes to the literature on M&A failures providing preliminary evidence on companies more involved in cross-border M&A being more subject to goodwill IL. The study also contributes to accounting literature as it builds a preliminary bridge between managerial strategic decisions on M&A and their effects on companies performance measured by a value relevant income component (i.e., goodwill IL).
