Abstract: 
I analyze the e ffects of profi t taxation on the fi nancing decision of corporate acquisitions. The deductibility of interest expenses from the corporate tax base creates an incentive for acquiring companies to fi nance a takeover with debt. Regarding the particular decision how to finance the considered deals results are not robust but looking at the whole capital structure development of acquirers I fi nd that an increase of the statutory tax rate by one %-point is associated with an increase of the debt ratio by 0.57 %-points during the acquisition period.
