Furthermore, Vietnam has a distinctive element of merging local firms; Out of top 20 deals, in 18 transactions target firms and acquirer both were from Vietnam. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has the highest percentage of completed M&A transactions in the last decade compared to Pakistan and Vietnam. In case of Pakistan, the findings suggest that Pakistan has had the highest number of value-based Mergers and Acquisitions deals in comparison to Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Interestingly, even though the number of transactions is higher compared to Sri Lanka and Vietnam; however, mergers and acquisition have had no significant impact on the profitability of Pakistan companies.DOI: 10.15408/sjie.v7i1.6074
