This study focuses on the short-run wealth of listed firms’ shareholders. Currently, all of the resulting organizations offer competitive pricing tactics to create a superior environment for our ongoing establishment. Some time ago, it was noted that a merger occurred, although some functions and technology integration remained with the previous structure. In this paper, it has been discovered that merger and acquisition deals have an impact on the firm’s value; in other words, we can view it as shareholders’ wealth or unit depending on the stock price after the announcement of merger and acquisition deals in the short term. Furthermore, we focused on influencing variables on stock prices after the announcement of merger and acquisition transactions, which is measured as a percentage change in the stock prices of the listed resulting firms. Furthermore, this research is based on secondary data sources from reputable organizations. It primarily uses the NSE database and website to evaluate announcements and stock prices of the twenty-nine publicly traded companies. Markets respond to investors’ emotions and market expertise. When acquirers have a strong market position, market capitalization rises in other segments. However, it is declining due to a lack of supportive finances. To determine the impact of merger and acquisition announcement deals on stock price changes, average abnormal return and cumulative average abnormal return with the capital asset pricing model (CAPM) (CAPM reaction to changes) were used to identify the acquiring company’s stock price reaction. We investigated its impact on the fluctuation of share prices posted on stock exchanges using fractal interpolation functions. This is due to greater investment by acquirer businesses in target companies as well as investor expectations for specific stock market strongholds.
