In a merger or an acquisition, shares can be used as “currency” to buy the target company without having to pay cash.
. If Company A wants to acquire Company B using share swap deal, A gives B’s shareholders some of its own shares in exchange of each share of B they own. B shares cease to exist after deal.
Each company’s shares are accurately valued in order to determine a fair swap ratio. In a 3-for-1 exchange, 50 shares of Company B would get swapped for 150 shares of company A.
. The M&A deal can be 100% through share swaps or it can be used along with part cash payments to shareholders of the target firm.
Unlike a cash transaction, in a share swap transactions, the synergy risk is shared by shareholders of both acquiring and target companies.
