Chapter 2: Merger incentives, efficiencies, and impediments

Mohammad Bedier


This chapter is the core of the book as it provides a clear and knowledgeable answer about the incentives that drive the parties to engage in highly complicated transactions, i.e. mergers. It will first address the question of the incentives that drive the merging parties to enter into mergers, which will be used as the standards to evaluate merger efficiencies in theory as well as empirical findings, and accordingly identifying the success and failure factors of mergers and their impact on general welfare. Then the chapter will answer the question of what the impediments facing mergers are in general, and especially cross-border mergers, and how they affect transactions. Then the discussion will focus on various merger control systems (US, EU, Egypt), to illustrate how they are hindering mergers. Following that, the discussion will identify the drawbacks of adopting premerger control systems.
