|Abstract: || 隨著國內企業的成長，以及商業競爭的國際化，併購已成為企業在維持及增加成長幅度時考慮的主要策略之一。過往的文獻對於企業成長理論有相當多的研究，經理人在成長歷程中的角色也被深度討論。另一方面，許多學者針對併購的動機進行討論，其中又以綜效、經理人自利與過度自信經理人為最被廣泛認可的併購動機。|
With the growing of firms in Taiwan and the internalization of commercial competition, merger and acquisition (M&A) have become one of the main strategies that firms consider when they want to keep growing. Previous studies have done a lot of research of firm growth and managers’ role on the path of growth. The antecedent of M&A has been discussed widely as well. Synergy, managerialism and hubris are the most recognized antecedents of M&A in these studies.
Although there were a large number of studies concerning firm growth and antecedents of M&A, few focused on the relationship between them, especially none was about Taiwan’s situation. With the sample of M&A cases of Taiwanese firms from 2008 to 2014, this study examines the relationship between firm growth and antecedents of merger. This study uses regression model to analysis the impact of firm growth rate on M&A behavior. Furthermore, M&A related variables such as probability of M&A, equity bought, international M&A percentage and success rate are explained in this study.
Two methods are used in this study to measure firm growth: sales revenue and total assets. The regression result shows that firms with higher growth rates are more likely to participate in M&A activities in both methods. While firms with higher sales growth tend to merge more foreign companies, firms with higher assets growth tend to buy more equity in M&As. To sum up, firm growth increase the probability of M&A activity. But different growth patterns can lead to variation of M&A behavior as well.
