Hi,
I am currently doing a masters in finance with an open university . My chosen field is mergers and acquisitions and the topic is the impact of mergers and acquisitions in the banking sector, case study: the merger of lloyds and hbos. I am having some troubles in regards to my research options? do you have any ideas where I could get the data from? interviews and surveys won't work as the branch won't give much information. Thanks

What data are you after?

Background to the "shotgun wedding" ought to be available in various books re the banking crisis, like:

Back from the Brink: 1000 Days at Number 11

Hey,

Thanks for the reply. Basically, I am going to focus on the shareholder wealth of the merger between lloyds and hbos, got the financial analysis from the internet, however, I need to include interviews and surveys to argue the impact of this merger on the banking sector. and don't know if there are any surveys online or the best way to do this. atm I don't have a supervisor to guide me in my chosen topic. thanks

Well, basically Lloyds shareholders got shafted and HBOS shareholders got a very small return on their shares rather than nothing.

It was certainly not a typical merger and it is pretty hard to look at it in accounting terms when the process was substantially political.

I also think the impact on the banking sector is going to be very difficult to ascertain as it was not in normal times nor are we imho anywhere near back to normal times, given the number of other factors in play within the banking sector in the period, QE, regulatory tightening re reserves, regulation etc it is likely going to be very difficult to isolate the effect of this merger re the entire sector.

Imho you have picked a very difficult industry, good luck.

One way to get some feedback is maybe try to get hold of some of the legal submissions re the various class actions.
