Abstract

This paper provides a systematic empirical analysis of the effects of take-over and merger activity on firm employment in the UnitedKingdom using a specially constructed database for the period 1967–1996. Our results indicate that significant rationalisations in the use of labour occur as firms reduce joint output and increase efficiency post-merger. These effects are particularly pronounced in the case of related and especially hostile mergers.
