Abstract

Abstract.

Mergers have been taught of as a form of corporate development and most organisations use it

as a route to achieving economies of scale and scope amongst others. This piece of work sheds

light on a government induced merger that took place in the Nigerian banking sector and tries

to examine how the share price has performed post merger. We conclude that a country

initiated merger is not the ultimate form of corporate development but rather a market induced

merger would have been more appropriate as the performance of the stock market and share

price has taken a downward swing post consolidation.

Keywords: Merger, Share Price, Emerging Market, Banking Sector.
