Merger & acquisition motives and outcome assessment

Abstract : Research on M&A outcome often focuses on tangible financial results and the reaction of stock markets. This research attempts to provide a more accurate assessment of M&A performance by linking tangible as well as intangible M&A motives to outcome assessment. The theoretical framework is based on evaluation theory. The authors analyze four case-studies of international M&As conducted by European companies. The findings indicate that M&A outcome can be more accurately measured by aligning it with the motives defined by the acquiring firms. They suggest that M&A outcome assessment should be considered as a process covering both pre-merger and post-merger stages. This study makes a theoretical contribution and augments evaluation theory by connecting M&A motives and M&A performance assessment and treat it as a process evaluation.
