New Book by Smith Professors Offers Guidance on How to Avoid The Winners Curse

A new book released this month offers guidance on how firms can avoid the kind of corporate victories that end up as disasters, harming shareholders and placing the firms future in jeopardy. Beware the Winners Curse: Victories That Can Sink You and Your Company (Oxford University Press, 2004) expands the model of the Winners Curse to explain how companies like Tyco, MCI-WorldCom and Lucent overpaid for acquisitions, and how shareholders suffered as a result.
