The Impact of Merger on Operational Efficiency of US Production Firms
By applying a co-relational research design, this study examined the association between merger and operational efficiency of US production firms. A sample of 467 listed US production firms for a period of four years (from 2010-2014) was analysed. The findings of this study indicate that merger plays some role in improving the operating efficiency of US production firms. This study contributes to the literature on the factors that improve operational efficiency of the firm, and in particular on the association between merger and various components of operational efficiency. The findings may be useful for financial managers, investors, financial management consultants, and other stakeholders.
