ABSTRACT


This research work is aimed at ascertaining the various positive impart which merger and acquisition has contributed in banking growth in Nigeria banking industries and prospects in the banking world using access bank in Enugu state as a case study. The importance of merger and acquisition will be apparent when considering the fact from the data that is gathered in the course of this work, from the related literature as well as, from interviews and discussions. Also questionnaires were distributed equally and collected which yielded or revealed that merger and acquisition played a positive role for growth in Nigeria banking industries. The information supplied by the Chief accountant in access bank, Enugu state contributed to the success of the exercise. The statistical analysis that used in the study includes the hypothesis testing in which the questionnaire is analyzed under their related hypothesis and the use of chi-square test of homogeneity. It was also discovered that it is important among other groups of professionals needed for this implementation of the exercise. Therefore, they formed the pillar on which any successful establishment rests upon. We recommended that merger and acquisition should be given a free hand in banking industries in order to enhance growth in banking industries in Nigeria. The banking reform pronounced on the 6th of July, 2004 had been a major wave towards a diversified, strong and reliable banking sector in Nigeria. This paper examined the mega banks by evaluating their performance four years after the consolidation exercise in Nigeria. It examined the impact of consolidation on performance and considers if there had been considerable improvement on their profitability, liquidity and solvency. In this study, we analysed the performance ratio of a sample of thirteen (13) mega banks. A descriptive analysis of these performance ratios was carried out. Correlation Analysis was used to test the impact of the consolidation on the performance measurement parameters. We found that, on average, bank consolidation resulted into improved performance. The paper therefore suggests that the bank management should embrace broad product strategies, which could help in generating more income for the banks. They should also embrace diversification and financial innovation in order to produce new products and services.
