Abstract: This study employs event study analysis to examine two mergers and acquisitions (M&A) of publicly traded firms. The stock price effect of these combinations in the agricultural biotechnology industry indicates a market expectation of their profitability. The paper also discusses the broader context of agricultural biotechnology M&A activity in the 1990s, focusing on innovation and competition.
