Abstract: In this paper I examine the various pre-merger conditions necessary for a merger and acquisition activity to be successful. I have done this by analyzing information from a sample of random companies and then looking at factors such as the merger value, the long term debt to income ratio, the average pre merger earnings per share and the long term asset-income ratio of the companies The results of my analysis shows that a higher value of merger leads to failure of the merger, the higher value of asset-income ratio leads to a successful merger. Higher debt Income ratio increases chances of failure. I take into account strictly these pre-merger conditions for the acquiring company.
