Summary
  • Empirical evidence in mergers and tender offers is reconsidered in light of the hubris hypothesis, which is advanced as an explanation of corporate takeovers. In the samples observed, decision-makers in acquiring firms, on average, pay too much for their targets. Hubris is necessary to explain why managers do not abandon bids that are rendered when the valuation exceeds the price, since such bids are likely to represent positive errors in valuation. Empirical evidence is found to support the hubris hypothesis as much as it supports other explanations of corporate takeovers.
