Sample text

In each period t = 1, 2, the firm gets a random, independent, and identically distributed draw of “latent” or true earnings, Lt. Outsiders cannot observe these latent earnings. They only see reported earnings, Rt. In period 1, executives can manipulate reported earnings R1 by choosing an amount M1 (possibly negative) to add to earnings, such that R1 = L1 + M1. The cost of manipulation is paid when there is full settling up in period 2: R2 = L2 − k(M1), where k(0) = 0 and there are positive and increasing marginal costs for moving away from zero.

That is, (assuming no new project is taken at time t = 1) the firm should be sold when B > ET(y2). Since the managers will acquiesce to the takeover attempt only when B > EM(y2), and since EM(y2) > ET(y2), the managers’ resistance decision may be suboptimal. This offers a prediction for the study of corporate control contests where managers fight for independence (often at very high financial and personal cost), even when takeovers would leave the incumbent managers with large post-takeover wealth through stock gains and golden parachute provisions.
