This chapter outlines various parameters used for evaluating the performance of an M&A deal. The calculation of profitability and valuation measures of combined entity in post-merger period vis-à-vis pre-merger period has been covered through numerical examples. It also puts forth the key findings of studies conducted on the success/failure of M&As all across USA and India along with Author’s individual study on the performance of M&A deals in India. The empirical work on performance evaluation of M&A indicates the mixed result. Some study shows that M&A results in improvement of performance while some other studies show that there is no significant impact of M&A on performance of combined entity.
