Abstract:
The concept of merger and acquisition appears to be easy but rigid to implement. This paper aims at analysing the financial performance of the companies that undergo merger and acquisition in the pharmaceutical sector. The concept of merger and acquisition appears to be easy but rigid to implement. There are mainly three segments of merger: Pre-merger, transition merger and post-merger. A sample of six companies in the pharmaceutical sector for the year 2010-16 was selected based on convenient sampling. Paired sample t-test was used for the study using SPSS software. The results show that the financial performance after acquisition when compared with pre-acquisition shows a decreasing trend. The internal and external stakeholders (investors, management, debtors and creditors) can benefit out of this research.
