    Acquirer share price

    I am talking about a firm(Acquirer) acquiring another firm (Acquired). Do we say:
    -Acquirer share price will go down
    OR
    -Acquirer's share price will go down

    Re: Acquirer share price

    Use the latter "Acquirer's share price will go down". The share price belongs to Acquirer and therefore you use the possessive.
    You could also say "The Acquirer share price will go down". Here the "acquirer share price" is used as a noun.
