In mergers and acquisitions, the number of shares an acquiring firm distributes for each validly rendered share of the acquired company. Each exchange ratio is calculated in accordance to the merger or acquisition agreement. Factors considered in determining the ratio are the relative value of each company prior to the closing of the merger or acquisition, any potential tax advantages for both parties, and applicable regulations.
