The Valuation Effects of Corporate Name Changes
Preview not available

Abstract

The stock return behavior of firms that change their names is investigated. The analysis shows a positive stock-price reaction to name change announcements by firms who have recently undergone major corporate restructuring. However, these effects are largely canceled in the post-announcement period. Thus, the valuation effects of name changes are only modest and transitory.
