Abstract

The paper discusses banks merger and acquisitions (M&A), an important and latest issue for developing economies like Bangladesh. The study is theoretical and analytical in nature. The extensive review of existing literature shows that bank M&A has been growing rapidly on the backdrop of financial deregulation and market competition across the world. However, the positive results of M&A on banking performance are still not well documented. Against the backdrop of current macroeconomic condition and political instability, we tend to argue that increasing non-performing loans, higher interest rate spread, and poor corporate governance could lead to bank massive failures and ultimately increase M&A in banking industry of Bangladesh. A number of policy measures have been recommended.
