One of the motives in this dissertation is that deals with the instability of investors’ worth or has unclear encroachment on investors’ worth. The expansion intention has unverifiable impact on the investors’ worth. This dissertation also examines the outcomes of participating in merger and acquisition (M&A) and these are explored more, using the approaches in the literature review. One of such outcome is that M&A multiplies shareholders worth for the targeted firm, and on the other hand reduces the shareholders worth for the purchasing firm or the newly joined firm. This study also comprises of quantitative research methodology; it is a gauge paper to ascertain the difference in the financial records of both the targeted firm and purchasing firm. The hypothesis seeks to establish if company’s profitability or performance improves as a result of engagement in mergers and accusation. To establish this assumption the researcher tries to analyze some company’s performance after their mergers and acquisition exercise by comparing their financial result before and after M&A exercise. For the more clear understanding of this study, the effects on the M&A performance of the acquiring company will be compared with company before they engage in M&A. Nevertheless, a Turkish cases was chosen in this study and analyzed for a more clear understanding; the M&A activity between a supermarket called Migros Turk A.S. supermarket and Tansaş A.S supermarket. The findings entails that the companies are on a health performance before the merger and acquisition activity
