This study builds a comprehensive model of merger performance’s influencing factors. We analyze the model using a multiple regression analysis approach, and 128 firms in China are selected as the samples of this study. The results of our study support the demand for an integrative perspective and theory on merger performance. Merger performance is a function of merger experience, integration speed, inside integration, outer integration, procedure justice and information justice. Finally, implications for researchers and practitioners are presented.
