Abstract

This study describes and summarises the results of several earlier studies on measuring cultural fit in Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As). Specifically, it provides an instrument for measuring culture in general and cultural differences in M&As in particular. The following sections define culture, explain its components, describe the measurement instrument and provide evidence for its reliability and validity. This study explores systematically the crucial yet neglected role of cultural differences in M&As based on a relatively large sample.
