How do you tell if an acquisition is accretive or dilutive?
A merger and acquisition (M&A) deal is said to be accretive if the acquiring firm’s earnings per share (EPS) increase after the deal goes through. If the resulting deal causes the acquiring firm’s EPS to decline, the deal is considered to be dilutive.
What does it mean for an acquisition to be dilutive?
A dilutive acquisition is a takeover transaction that decreases the acquirer’s earnings per share (EPS) through lower (or negative) earnings contribution or if additional shares are needed to be issued by the acquiring company to pay for the acquisition.
How accretion dilution analysis affects mergers and acquisitions?

Is diversification a reason for acquisition?
Diversification acquisition is a corporate action whereby a company takes a controlling interest in another company to expand its product and service offerings. The acquirer may believe the unrelated company unlocks synergies that promote growth or reduce prevailing risks in other operations.
Can accretive acquisitions be value negative?
Accretion/Dilution Calculation: Pro-Forma EPS are divided by the standalone forecast EPS of the buyer and shown as a percentage. If the number is positive then the acquisition is accretive and positive for shareholders of the buyer; if it is negative the acquisition is dilutive and negative for shareholders.
How do you analyze mergers and acquisitions?

What is acquisition of a company?
An acquisition is when one company purchases most or all of another company’s shares to gain control of that company.

What happens when a company with a low P/E acquires a company?
If a company with a low P/E acquires a company with a high P/E in an all stock deal, will the deal likely be accretive or dilutive? Other things being equal, if the Price to Earnings ratio (P/E) of the acquiring company is lower than the P/E of the target, then the deal will be dilutive to the acquiror’s Earnings Per Share (EPS).
An accretive acquisition increases the earnings per share (EPS) of the acquiring company. A company can use an accretive acquisition to encourage an increase in its share price.
How does price to earnings ratio affect a merger and acquisition?
Other things being equal, if the Price to Earnings ratio (P/E) of the acquiring company is lower than the P/E of the target, then the deal will be dilutive to the acquiror’s Earnings Per Share (EPS). This is because the acquiror has to pay more for each dollar of earnings than the market values its own earnings.
This is because the acquiror has to pay more for each dollar of earnings than the market values its own earnings. Hence, the acquiror will have to issue proportionally more shares in the transaction.
