1. Kwansa, Francis A. Acquisitions and shareholder wealth effects : the case of the hospitality industry.

Degree: PhD, Human Nutrition and Foods, 1994, Virginia Tech

The phenomenon of acquisitions has attracted research interest in the finance literature partly because of its impact on the u.s economy during the decade of the eighties. Whereas an impressive body of knowledge has been accumulated on this subject thus far, the hospitality literature has no empirical studies that seek to explain the nature of this phenomenon in the hospitality industry. Of particular interest in this study was the impact of acquisitions on the shareholder wealth of target hotel and restaurant shareholders. Therefore, there were three purposes in this study: 1) to determine whether stockholders of target hotel and restaurant companies involved in acquisitions earned significant additional wealth, 2) to determine whether there is a difference in the average size of additional wealth created in acquisitions involving hospitality companies versus those involving non-hospitality companies, and 3) to determine whether there is a difference in the average size of additional shareholder wealth accruing to hotel versus restaurant shareholders. The sample consisted of 39 restaurant and 18 hotel target companies acquired between 1980 and 1990. The datasource was the University of Chicago's Center for Research in Securities Prices (CRSP) database. The market model was used to predict stock returns for the target companies thirty days before and after the announcement of the acquisition. The difference between the predicted returns and actual returns for each trading day during this period constituted the abnormal return. The average abnormal returns for all the companies per trading day were cumulated and their significance determined. The results showed that the size of the additional shareholder wealth created when the restaurant companies were acquired was 8.86%, hotels was 29.86%, while the combined sample was 15.47%. These resul ts provided evidence that hotel and restaurant shareholders earn significant abnormal returns during an acquisition, and that there is a significant difference in the size of additional shareholder wealth accruing to hospitality companies versus non-hospitality ones. Furthermore, there was a difference in the average size of abnormal returns earned by hotel shareholders versus restaurant shareholders. Advisors/Committee Members: Murrmann, Suzanne K.

3. Chon, Kye-Sung. Consumer satisfaction and dissatisfaction in tourism as related to destination image perception.

Degree: PhD, Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management, 1990, Virginia Tech

The primary objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between travel destination image and the tourist satisfaction/dissatisfaction. Using the evaluative congruity theory framework, this study focused on the role of destination images in tourism with regard to consumer satisfaction/ dissatisfaction (CS/D) from the stand point of: (1) the functional congruency between the tourist's expectations and his/her perceptions of specific utilitarian (functional) attributes of a destination; (2) the value-expressive (symbolic) congruency between the tourist'S self concept and the destination's personality image; and (3) the degree of emotional involvement the traveler associates with travel purchases and its influence on his/her satisfaction/ dissatisfaction. The key findings of this study indicate that CS/D is related to both functional and symbolic congruity. With regard to the relative strength of the functional congruity and the symbolic congruity in explaining CS/D in tourism, the functional congruity was found to explain CS/D better than the symbolic congruity. It was also found that the tourist's emotional involvement in the travel purchase process affects his/her satisfaction/dissatisfaction with the destination.
