Merger and Acquisition (M&A) was the result of many contributing factors in any organization namely,corporate growth (Shrivastava, 1988), corporate strategy (School, 1987), diversification and renewal(Nahavandi & Malekzadeh, 1988), strategic alliances (Doz & Hamel, 1998), respond to financial markets (Häkkinen, 2005), all led by value creation goal. Companies see M&A as means to pursue their long term strategic goals (Gaughan, 2010). The goal is paved from strategic vision rational to create long term competitive advantage, sustainable and profitable business. Post Merger Integration means not only merging of business activities and formal structures towards economic success, but also tackling sociocultural and organizational aspects (Maire & Collerette, 2011). Completion of contract signing is only a part of the overall M&A exercise. Merger involves fundamental changes in administrative and structure,and the greater the merger, it will require more complex intervention to help manage the integration.
