Research Background

As there are more and more mergers and acquisitions (M&A) between companies, it has been a widely researched topic by scholars. Many researchers have been conducted on the motivations of M&A and a series of theories have been developed to explain this phenomenon, such as synergy theory (Ansoff, 1965), undervaluation theory (Weston, 1998), the market for corporate control theory (Manne, 1965), and so on. However, these theories are based on the corporate activities in western countries. While they explain some of the activities of Chinese companies, the M&As of Chinese companies have their own characteristics. That is because of the special property rights and control of these companies.
