This study examines the effect of shareholders' wealth after the announcement of a poison pill being incorporated in the amendment charter. The sample of firms taken support the null hypothesis of shareholders' wealth not being significantly effected after the announcement date. Although the sample as a whole supports the null hypothesis, several individual firms support the alternative hypothesis of shareholders' loss after the announcement of the poison pill .
