Comprehensive assessment of determinants of mergers and acquisitions in the banking sector

Lina Novickytė


Globalization, consolidation among banks and the global financial crisis in recent decades have severely affected the banking sector. All of these changes have had an impact on the development of the sector and its stability. This paper examines factors and causes influencing the banking sector consolidation processes. In order to identify the motives, mergers and acquisitions in the banking sector and the potential impact of the consolidation to the financial system were driven. Based on the study results, a comprehensive matrix of mergers and acquisitions in the banking sector influencing factors, which include macro-, micro-elements and the importance of determining the value of the bank, was made.
