Formatted abstract In today's economy, we frequently see the consolidation of firms occurring through the process of mergers and acquisitions. This study seeks to use the analytical process of game theory to examine the interactions between a raider and the incumbent management. A model is developed and applied to three case studies. Analysis of the cases show that different defensive measures affect the payoffs to each party differently and explains the actions of the various parties.
