Managers, like academics, have different mental backgrounds, are trained in different disciplines, and are experienced in different specialisms. Some will be familiar with the language of economics, some unfamiliar. The same applies no doubt to the languages of marketing, accounting, finance, and many others.

The question has been raised whether financial markets are in fact efficient enough to do this. 1 argue that market efficiency is not the real financial issue. In any case, there is also the question whether managers and others perceive financial markets as overvaluing the short term. For a discussion of the ‘short-termist’ controversy, see Marsh (1990).

A shareholder who held 10 shares worth $1000 each, a total value of $10 000, may after the merger hold 20 shares worth $500 each in the same company, or 40 shares worth $250 each in some other company. In both cases the value of the shareholder’s investment is unchanged by the event, but in the first case (20 shares in the same company at a price of $500) the share price has halved. Throughout this illustration taxes have for the sake of simplicity been ignored.
