dc.description.abstract The excess returns earned by takeover targets raises questions of efficiency in the market for corporate control. Brown and Raymond and Samuelson and Rosenthal explain the target share pricing process as a function of the probability of success of the takeover bid. We highlight weaknesses in this work, propose an alternative model, and apply it to 245 Australian takeovers from 1980 to 1993. We find, for targets of successful bids, considerable non-convergence to the bid price. This is consistent with speculative trading models whereby the reduction in dispersion of traders' beliefs leads to the evaporation of market liquidity. en
