    Au cours de cette étude, nous exposons les apports d'une approche probabiliste dans la mesure du risque d'une opération de fusion-acquisition. Après avoir rappelé les mécanismes du risk arbitrage, et exposé la relation au marché de cette activité à travers la littérature existante sur les recherches empiriques effectuées, nous développerons une modélisation logistique portant sur un échantillon de 386 opérations concernant des entreprises de capitalisations inférieures à 500 millions de dollars. Couvrant la période 2008-2012 et les territoires nord-américains et d'Europe de l'ouest, ce travail démontre que l'approche statistique permet, grâce à un certain niveau d'efficience de l'univers des opérations de fusion-acquisition, d'améliorer l'approche du risk arbitrage, en fonction de la distribution du taux d'échec au cours de la période et de l'échantillon analysé.
