Over Miriam van der Burg

The issue of concentration of media ownership is addressed in my PhD project from a financial-economic perspective. The project’s objectives are two-fold. The first aim is to gain understanding of the occurrence of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in the context of long-term trends in the newspaper market, phases of economic up- and downturn, further consolidation, and (de)regulation. The second aim is to understand why and how horizontal M&As between newspaper publishers improved their operating and financial performance. In short, the project focuses on factors that predict M&A activity and the impact of these M&As on the target firm’s performance.
