Abstract

M&A (mergers and acquisitions) have always been a hot topic. With the rapid development of the global economy and the intensified competition in recent years, M&A have ushered in an unprecedented new situation both in terms of scale and transaction volume. Based on this, we have combed the literature research on M&A, and based on behavioral economic theory, we have analyzed five kinds of same or similar companies M&A behavior. After discussing each M&A behavior, we have all carried out a summary, including the existing research results, deficiencies, and future research directions. Finally, we have summarized the existing research and put forward research proposals. This article has important theoretical and practical significance for future experts and scholars in related fields to study one or more kinds M&A behavior.
