MERGERS AND THE COMPETITIVE PROCESS by Statistics Canada( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This paper uses a longitudinal data base of establishments and firms taken from the Canadian Census of Manufactures to measure the intensity of mergers and to compare them to other change that leads to firm turnover. The importance of mergers is placed in the context of the plant and firm turnover process by comparing the amount of each merger type to alternate forms of expansion. The paper compares horizontal merger activity to the creation of new plants by continuing firms, and entry by diversification to entry by plant birth. The paper then investigates post-merger success by examining market share, productivity, and profitability changes. When the extent to which acquired plants are subsequently divested is used to evaluate success, this divestiture process is compared to the exit rate of newly built plants. When changes in post-merger market share are examined, a regression is used to examine whether merged plants act differently than other plants. When post-merger productivity and profitability changes are examined, they are compared to what is happening to other plants in the same industry
Firm entry and exit in the Canadian manufacturing sector by Statistics Canada( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Firm turnover occurs both because of entry and exit and because of expansion and construction in continuing firms. This paper develops measures of change in the incumbent population and compares them to the entry and exit process. In the first case, measures of employment growth and decline are used, and the paper measures rates of change in both the short and long term. In addition to measures of rates of change, the dissimilarity index of market shares in 1970 and 1979 is used to capture the amount of change in relative firm position, which captures the extent to which market share is transferred from losers to winners. Finally, the paper examines whether high levels of entry and exit turnover are associated with high levels of continuing firm turnover and asks whether one process is just an extension of the other

Industry efficiency and plant turnover in the Canadian manufacturing sector by John R Baldwin( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the degree of industry efficiency in the Canadian manufacturing sector and the determinants of that efficiency in the 1970s. The first section of the paper outlines the methodology used to measure industry efficiency and the second section examines certain characteristics of the measure. The third section investigates the extent to which this measure is related to the same industry characteristics that were found to be important determinants of efficiency in the Caves and Barton (1990) study of United States industry. The fourth section explores the dynamics of industry change, focusing on the role of turnover with respect to changes in efficiency. The fifth section uses regression analysis to examine the industry determinants of the forces that reduce turnover and the commonalities between the determinants of inter-industry variability in efficiency levels and the forces that lead these levels to change over time
