Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have been widely used by companies around the world and have an ever-increasing presence in Indian business. Yet various academic and literature reviews show that there is no conclusive view on whether M&A strategies help in improving the performance or deteriorating the same. There are more of (loser) failure companies than success (winner) companies when they adopt M&A. This paper considers the M&A in Indian manufacturing companies and classifies them into success (winner) and failure (loser) cases based on improvement in return on net worth after three years post-M&A period.
