''Mixed Oligopoly and Productivity-Improving Mergers''
( 2007, Vol. 12 No.20 )
This paper investigates productivity improving merger activities between a public firm and a private firm in mixed oligopoly. We assume that the merged firm has two plants (formerly, firms). We show that both owners of a public firm and a private firm want to merge by coordinating their shareholding ratios in the merged firm, whenever the number of private firms is larger than a critical value, while the public firm does not want to merge without the effect of improving the productivity of the merged firm.
Keywords: mixed oligopoly
JEL: L2 - Firm Objectives, Organization, and Behavior: General
