CFA Practice Question

In a stock offering,

I. The target's shareholders share the reward and risk related to the post-merger company.
II. The target's stocks may be interpreted as overvalued by some investors. This is similar to the signal theory.
III. The dilution effect will occur.
Correct Answer: I and III

II is wrong. Investors sometimes interpret a stock offering as signal that the acquirer's (not the target's) shares may be overvalued.

davidt87 dilution will occur as the acquirer will now have more shares outstanding, but the acquired net assets should offset that dilution.
