Merger and acquisition activity results in overall benefits to shareholders when the consolidated post-merger firm is more valuable than the simple sum of the two separate pre-merger firms. The primary cause of this gain in value is supposed to be the performance improvement following the merger. The research for post-merger performance gains has focused on improvements in any one of the following areas such as efficiency improvements, increased market power, or heightened diversification.

Each bank had minimum shareholders’ funds of RM2 billion and asset base of at least RM25 billion.
