This paper studies influencing factors of acquisition premium for shipping industry in China with aspects of inner drive, inducement and success probability. It is based on acquisition theories and achievement theories, departing from earlier studies. Under the guidance of M&A Motivation, 379 acquisitions from 2010 to 2016 are empirically verified. The results indicate that the majority of higher premium in shipping industry in China are paid for promoting better enterprises development, and it is not highly correlated with agency motivation. The relationship between M&A motivation and acquisition premium revealed by the paper could contribute to a reasonable price bargain for the acquirer; meanwhile, the innovative consideration of inducement extends the set of influencing factors for acquisition premium.
