Market for Corporate Control Mergers and themarket for corporate control, Manne, H. G. (1965). Mergers and the market for corporate control.Journal of Political economy,73(2), 110-120.

The paper constitutes an introduction to a study of the market for corporation control. Themarket for corporate control: The scientific evidence, Jensen, M. C., & Ruback, R. S. (1983).

E., Johnson, R. A., & Moesel, D. D. (1996). The market for corporate control and firm innovation.Academy of management journal,39(5), 1084-1119. This research examines an integrated theoretical model that explains how strategies for participating in the market for corporate control (acquisitions and divestitures) affect internal control mechanisms and, together, influence internal and external innovation. In this paper, ten hypotheses were proposed, out of which nine received support. The paper aims to show that engaging in the market for corporate control strongly affects the context in which innovation is framed, the control mechanisms employed, and the design and process of innovation.

Organization theory and the market for corporate control: A dynamic analysis of the characteristics of large takeover targets, 1980-1990.Administrative Science Quarterly, 605-633. This paper describes how takeovers are accomplished and why they are not readily accommodated by existing organizational theories. The paper shows that greater organizational slack, age, and having a finance chief executive officer increased the risk of takeover; family control and financial characteristics such as a higher market-to-book ratio lowered the risk; while bank control and intercorporate network ties had no discernable effect. 1 The fundamental agency problem and its mitigation: independence, equity, and themarket for corporate control, Dalton, D.
