DOES M&A MAKE SENSE IN THIS

 There is a lot of dispersion in your submitted reservation prices.
 Why? [Note that the confidential information was identical for each role]
 This dispersion makes the M&A outcome less predictable.
 In the real world, such dispersion may explain a “Winner’s Curse” in M&A

 There is an “own-firm” bias
 BV’s mean reservation price for itself is higher than the objective reservation price
 BV’s mean reservation price for SS is about the same as the objective reservation
