Abstract: The present paper is an attempt to find the impact of M&A announcement on the share price of Indian acquirer firms. This study examines the 25 Indian domestic Mergers and Acquisitions held in year 2009 & 2010 by using event study methodology. Only firms from secondary sector of Indian economy were selected for this study. T test was applied on Average Abnormal returns (AAR) & cumulative Average Abnormal returns (CAAR) of observed event windows (-5,+5), (- 2,+2) and (-1,+1) to examine statistical validity. After analysing all returns, it is found that Mergers and Acquisitions announcement do not have any significant impact on CAAR of Acquirer firms but AAR is statistically significantly positive on some days of (-5,+5)event window.
